resisTEAnce llc is a San Diego based loose leaf company with a bold political message. Our mission is to educate tea drinkers about the health benefits of loose leaf tea, fight for progressive ideals, and tease our favorite politicians! Each tea will satirize a popular politician, both beloved and abhorred. 10% of after-tax net profits will be donated to non-profits fighting for policies such as Medicare for All, The Green New Deal, as well as Campaign Finance and Criminal Justice Reform. We will not be donating any money from this kickstarter campaign to any charity or non-profit. All campaign contributions will go towards helping us launch our project.
We believe that in this toxic political climate, each person has the opportunity to make a difference. If you're a tea drinker and a progressive, JOIN US! We're building a community of like-minded progressives who want to support companies that are creating a better world for future generations.
Your donation will help us:
- Stock inventory (package teas in foil pouches, heat sealed with labels)
- Hire a professional to design labels and marketing materials
- Launch a nationwide marketing campaign
This is the time for action! Those of us who are willing and able must hold the powers that be accountable. And we don't see why we can't do that over a sustainable, certified fair trade cup of delicious loose leaf tea.
Introducing 8 wellness blends:
AGENT ORANGE (wellness digestion)
CRUELLA DEVOS (organic slimming green oolong)
BERNIE WAN KENOBI (ginger turmeric wellness tea)
KASPER (ayurverdic cleanse)
OH, CANADA (hangover helper)
NASTY WOMAN (raspberry matcha)
AOC FROM THE BLOCK (healthy hair & nails blend)
PROFESSOR W (ayurverdic barrier)
For $25, I'll create your personal avatar and label. You'll get to choose your tea's name, the satirical health benefits, the type of tea (from one of our eight choices) and put your own personal quote on the back label. Here's an example inspired by my frosting-loving friend.

Risks and challenges
The loose leaf tea industry is incredibly saturated. There are a lot of great products on the market. We will not be cheapest. Our mission maintains that we are trying to help progressive non-profits spread their message and fight for policies that help the people not the donor class. It is imperative that we have the resources to market an effective campaign to find all the progressives out there and bring them into the fold. We believe that once our message is heard, we will be a force to reckon with. #RESISTLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
