For Christmas, my home-girl gave me a delicious package of mint and lavender loose-leaf tea from Gullah Girl Tea. I handn't heard about the Brooklyn-based brand but was immediately intrigued. I did some poking around the site and learned Gullah Girl Tea was started five years ago by Charmaine Bee as a way to share the healing benefits of tea and the Gullah culture of South Carolina, where she's from.
I also learned that Gullah Girl Tea is in the midst of Kickstarter campaign. Gullah Girl Tea is close to their goal but with only five days left they could use our help to make sure the project is fully funded. If you're interested in good tea or would like to support a small business check out the site and their Kickstarter page here.
