The Launch


Late one night at 3am, I decided "I'm going to start a tea business". And about 5 months later, it's here -- Kin Leaf Tea. Thank you to everyone who believed, financially supported, and professionally helped me. It definitely tested my imposter syndrome, perfectionism and patience, but I feel so grateful to launch knowing I did everything I could with my very few and limited resources. It took a village to get me here and I can officially call myself a tea lady. BOOYAH!
