At the center of the universe there shines a bright light. A song of joy and happiness emanates from the light. That light is you in your perfection. The song is your song. It is the sound your soul makes, and it is beautiful.
We created UPPA TEA as a way for all of us to be kind to ourselves and our beautiful Earth. It is a responsible alternative to overpriced, over-sugared, over-produced beverages that we find littering our world.
UPPA TEA is made by blending whole leaf tea with whole fruit, like delicious strawberries, lemons and mangos. The result is a delightful, healthy, easy to mix, cold or hot, instant, whole food beverage that you can feel good about putting in your body. Our packaging is 100% recyclable or reusable so it doesn’t contribute to the defacing of our beautiful planet.
The world is a beautiful place and you are a beautiful person. Let’s keep it that way. Shine on!
Life is complicated. The things we put in our bodies shouldn't be. We believe the best things you can consume are whole foods. That's why we use only minimal ingredients in our tea. Each flavor of UPPA TEA contains only tea and fruit. That's it. Good, whole foods that are good for you.
We are launching UPPA TEA with four initial flavor combinations. Strawberry Moon, which is black tea with strawberry, Lemon Sun which is black tea with lemon, Mango Star which is green tea with mango, and Strawberry Eclipse which is green tea with strawberry. While we will be adding additional flavors as we grow, these four are our favorites. We hope you love them too.
UPPA TEA is easy to mix! Just add 1/2 teaspoon to 8 oz of hot or cold water. If mixing cold, the best method is to add a small amount of water to your glass, stir vigorously, then add the rest of the water and ice. Garnish to make it out-of-this world.
A simple change in your lifestyle makes a huge impact on your health and the health of the world. Instead of buying tea in disposable cups with plastic lids and straws, you can quickly mix up UPPA TEA with hot or cold water in your reusable beverage container. We recommend a stainless steel or glass container that can last a lifetime or longer, or be recycled. Read below for plastic statistics found with single-use packets or single use bottles, cups and straws.
We are committed to packaging UPPA TEA in 100% recyclable and reusable containers. We ask you to join us in respecting our beautiful Earth and recycling your UPPA canisters or better yet, finding a great use for them around your home. They make great storage containers for small items like safety pins, paper clips, jewelry, loose change, or as a travel container for those little things that get lost in the bottom of your computer case or handbag.

With your help, we will launch our new company and line of instant teas early next year. We'll be starting the year off together, and making changes to better ourselves and the world one tea at a time.
So many choices, so little time....

Risks and challenges
The risks we face are delays in getting our packaging. Should that occur, we will use readily available eco-friendly packaging for our first run.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
