We’re incorporating a culture of giving as we grow, by giving 10% of all sales as in-kind donations to cancer wellness and community programs. We do this to actively support the cause that fuels our passion: maintaining the on-going wellness of cancer survivors and facilitating healthy habits to decrease cancer risks.
The Tea Spot’s passion is fueled by our founder and CEO, a cancer survivor initially drawn to the health benefits of premium tea during her recovery. We’re inspired by medical research suggesting that tea provides numerous health benefits, from helping to prevent disease, to stress management and weight loss.
A labor of love.
Our partner wellness organizations receive gifts of Steepware® paired with antioxidant-rich, handpicked teas. These donations are assembled by our dedicated volunteers and interns who share our vision of maintaining a healthy lifestyle to help prevent the onset and recurrence of chronic illnesses. To date, The Tea Spot has made donations through dozens of health and community initiatives including: National Race to End Women's Cancer, Rocky Mountain Cancer Center, Living Journey's Summit Hike, Casting for Recovery, Ovarian Cancer Awareness of Kentucky, Junior League of Denver, A Woman’s Work, Cancer Climber Association, HospiceCare of Boulder and Broomfield Counties, and Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance.
"Loose leaf tea became an integral part of my own recovery and continues to be a key component of my daily health regimen. The simple act of preparing loose tea is likely just as therapeutic as the tea itself. It gives me great joy to be able to share this with others and I am continually inspired by the people who courageously and actively fight to survive."
-Maria Uspenski, CEO & ovarian cancer survivor
