Check out my video below to see how I’m bringing the smoothest, most flavorful iced teas to America
At an early age, my independence and innate curiosity became apparent to my parents and teachers. It was clear that I simply did not fit into traditional Chinese culture. So, at the age of 14, I left for Europe, and then received a scholarship to study in the U.S.
Happy, yet homesick, I yearned for the fragrant teas I fondly remembered. In the U.S., I stumbled on aisles of iced teas. Teas that tasted so sweet, I could barely taste the tea. And no wonder, they were mostly sugar water!
Or perhaps, they did not realize that a great tasting, healthier ice tea was possible! This needed to change. I started making cold brew teas in small batches for friends in the back of a pizza factory.
My ultimate recipe became a simple list of organic ingredients, that everyone could pronounce, cold brewed to perfection with just a touch of honey to sweeten.
Shortly thereafter, I sold my 1st bottle at Whole Foods. Word spread quickly. Now over 1,200 retail locations across the U.S. offer Evy Tea. I then launched a convenient ready-to-serve bag-in-box format for restaurants, universities, offices, and fast casual locations. In Foodservice we became the first better-for-you iced tea that was readily available on tap.
