10% Pledge for Wellness
"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
Our founder Maria is a cancer fighter, drawn to the health benefits of tea during her recovery, and inspired by medical research suggesting that tea can provide numerous benefits, from helping to prevent disease, to stress relief and weight management.
The Tea Spot’s mission is to fuel health, wellness and happiness through tea. But it goes beyond tea. We offer community support and encouragement to those striving for a healthier life.
The Tea Spot incorporates a generous culture of giving back. We donate 10% of all sales in-kind to cancer survivors and wellness programs.
