As she grew her tea line to over 20 unique blends and began to partner with local Specialty Shops, Cafe’s, local restaurant, Artisan Farmers Markets, Clarissa felt a need to offer more on Fellowship with Tea to her growing customers base and those that have yet to experience the loveliness that is tea.
Clarissa realizes that tea is so much more then a beverage, it is a way of life, an offer to make life long friends.
