Ivy's Tea Co. is owned and operated by first-generation herbalist, Shanae. Born and raised in Prince George's County, MD. The decision to study herbalism came after she went vegan (she's no longer vegan) and decided to learn more about living off the land and using the land for healing. With the help of The Black UpStart, she launched Ivy's Tea Co. in November 2016. Since then the brand has transformed into the Hip-Hop inspired tea company you shop from today. Through Ivy's Tea Co., Shanae hopes to change the way you see tea drinkers and introduce more Afrikan holistic health remedies into the holistic health industry, which is largely white owned. The goal is to make the industry as inclusive and reflective and accepting of all cultures as Hip-Hop.
When she is not blending teas or infusing honeys, she's probably at the nail salon - nails gotta stay fly.
