Eat, Drink And Be indie: Tasty Recipes, Inspiring Maker Stories & Exclusives Served Daily

Owl's Brew

Jennie Ripps and Maria Littlefield loved tea but wanted to shake up its staid grandma vibe. First, they launched The Teaologist, a boutique selling custom tea blends made only with whole fruits, spices and natural loose leaf tea. Next, they started experimenting with tea-based cocktails. 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.
