The Black Leaf Tea And Culture Shop is looking to open shop and we need your help to do it! The Black Leaf Tea And Culture Shop is more than just a tea company, but also a community and culture brand. We plan on using our teas to bring communities together and celebrating Black culture by curating conversations and hosting events.

Our teas are as unique as the people who drink them. They are blended not only to taste great, but to inspire. Teas have been used for centuries to heal, bring peace, and bring people together. With your help, we can use our teas to bring communities together and start a change no matter where you are.

At The Black Leaf Tea And Culture, we beleive that everyone deserves a chance to thrive. However, it takes a community to advocate for change to make that possible. Our hope is to use our teas to educate the community on health and wellness, the healing power of teas and herbs, encourage entrepreneurship, and celebrate Black culture.  

We are strong advocates of reading, and will be starting a book club for kids, to encourage them to fall in love with reading. Our Tea Talks serve as a platform for people to create conversations to express their opinions on important topics such as community issues, culture, politics, relationships and dating, etc. Our premier event will be the Black Women in Business Showcase. This event shines a light on local Black Women owned businesses doing great things, to help create a network of minority entrepreneurs and continue to push the narrative of financial independence and ownership.

So what does backing our Kickstarter mean? You are supporting the success of a young Black woman owned business. You are supporting the success of the Black Women In Business Showcase. And you are supporting the empowerment of communities through advocacy and pride in their culture.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge will be marketing. I will be working with a marketing team to identify what makes my teas and brand different and stand out from all the other tea companies. We will use that uniqueness to create the website, promotion campaigns, and increase sales.
