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.
