2016: What a Year!

by Theresa Krier January 02, 2017

2016 was a transformative year here at Big T NYC. It was an amazing year - our best year yet. And I am excited to share some of these milestones and successes with you - the amazing people who made it all happen. It's all in the infographic, but some highlights include now selling internationally, winning 1st place in the (super prestigious) North American Tea Championship, growing by 400%, and being featured internationally by publications like Elle, New Beauty, Well + Good, and PopSugar

Thank you for believing in our young company, and for supporting our mission to enhance people's lives through organic wellness-promoting teas and tisanes. We have so many more exciting things coming out in 2017 - I can't wait to share more soon! Thank you for being part of the Big T NYC family!

Wishing you all a bright, light, healthy 2017 filled with love and happiness!
