The Starbucks of the Tea Industry!

We are purveyors of teas from different countries. We source directly from the plantation, so there's no middleman. Black Momma Tea & Cafe is the physical extension of our existing brands: Black Momma Vodka, Black Momma Tea, Black Momma Agave, and Black Momma Mixers, which currently have 26,000 total customers and totaled $2.5 million in online sales last year. We're building two locations in N.Y. to create physical extensions of our e-commerce business and to jump-start our expansion.
