About this project

Who we are

We are a small business located in Northern Virginia that started right here, from a successful Kickstarter Campaign.  True Honey Teas is dedicated to producing the high quality and flavorful single-serve teas. Along with our exceptional teas, we care about natural sweeteners and ingredients. It is our goal to promote honey as a natural and healthier sugar.  

We started with single serve cups for the ease of packaging honey and tea in a cup.  Now we are so excited to move to tea bags with honey granules!

The Product

We combine high quality loose leaf tea with granulated honey.  Each bag has 4 grams of tea with a whole tablespoon of honey.  Our Honey Teas pair so well together, creating a perfect, evenly sweetened cup of tea :).

 

We have decided on resealable pouches for holding honey tea bags.  They are great - both air tight and resealable so the tea will stay fresh for years!!

Honey Granules

Honey Granules are delicious!  We struggled for years to find a way of putting honey into tea bags.  After years of researching we have discovered granulated honey.  It is honey that has been blended with raw cane sugar and dried to form a stable and easy to manage form.

 

Tea Flavors

Our source very high quality tea from all over the world.  We plan to launch honey tea bags in the following flavors....let us know your thoughts!!!!!!  

Earl Grey - Blended Indian and Ceylon teas flavored with oil of bergamot, extracted from the rind of bergamot oranges.

Decaf Earl Grey - CO2 process. Developed in Germany as a natural alternative to the methylene chloride process, CO2 decaffeination allows the teas to retain more of the unique flavors of premium caffeinated teas.

Rooibos - Rooibos is only grown in a small area in the Cederberg region of the Western Cape province of South Africa. It contains no caffeine and brews up a sweet, dark red infusion. Some say it has a slightly nutty flavor.

Jasmine - This delicious tea features 1st grade green tea leaves that are lightly scented with jasmine blossoms to create a wonderfully aromatic and flavorful infusion.

Green - Ceylon Green tea is a one of a kind experience.  Ceylon teas are typically fully oxidized black tea. They feature long wiry leaves, full body and a much stronger flavor than a delicate green tea. This green version of Ceylon, however, maintains the smooth body but features a cleaner, crisp and slightly sweet taste

Peppermint - One of the oldest known herbal teas, peppermint leaves are brisk, refreshing and can be brewed either hot or cold. Originally from the Mediterranean, peppermint is naturally caffeine free with a cooling menthol flavor.

English Breakfast - A traditional blend of Chinese Keemun and other black teas. It gets its "breakfast" namesake from its strong, heavy flavor and dark colored brew.

Team

Chris Savage - Founder

As an tea lover, engineer, inventor and entrepreneur, Chris loves creating new products.   After receiving a Keurig machine in 2013 (as a gift from his mother on Valentine's Day), Chris quickly discovered that single-serve tea selections were very limited. His engineering curiosity took over and he set out to create his own.  After the amazing support from a successful Kickstarter campaign, Chris decided to quit is job and start growing True Honey Teas!

Bee Sustainability

We've all heard about the bee troubles in the news...but bees really do need our help.  They are so important to our modern human lives pollinating plants, and producing delicious honey.  Dogs are called mans best friend, but it should really be the bees!!!  If all animals went extinct, bees are one of the few animals that produce all vitamins and nutrients needed for humans to survive....who's mans best friend now!

We at True Honey Teas want to do more.  Over the last few years we've developed relationships with beekeeping programs at George Mason University as well as local apiaries.  With each bag of Honey Tea Bags we sell, we will be giving back a portion toward beekeeping training, research, and sustainability efforts.  We love honey, we love bees, and we want to do our part.
