Jennie Ripps and Maria Littlefield loved tea but wanted to shake up its staid grandma vibe.

Their day-jobs as event planners led them to first serve the drinks at the NYC premiere of "Twilight: Breaking Dawn" (Team Edward forever!). Soon, the tea syrup was being requested all over town, and Jennie and Maria realized that there was a huge demand for tea cocktail mixers.
