A crowd-source funding campaign for The Queens’ Tea, a Salt Lake city loose leaf tea company that specializes in creating teas and events that connect global tea cultures with contemporary tastes, was selected by A&E Television’s Project Startup as a featured project. The recognition led to a $4,000 contribution to The Queens’ Tea by A&E and an extension of their RocketHub campaign.
“We are thrilled that A&E selected The Queens’ Tea to be featured on Project Startup. We feel this is a terrific opportunity to share our company and our passion with a wider audience and to grow our business even further,” said Michael Ferguson, co-founder of The Queens’ Tea.
The Queens’ Tea mission has been to share the unique aspects of various global tea cultures with customers throughout the U.S. Intermountain West and beyond through unique in-store events and custom loose leaf tea blends. The Queens’ Tea blends bring the finest selection of teas to supermarkets and cafes in Salt Lake City, including teas that were more common in early frontier America and the American West. Their blends are also available through their website, http://www.TheQueensTea.com
“Many people don’t know the history of tea culture in Utah, and as we grow our product line we will begin to reflect that connection even more. For example, our Blue Tea blend is a tribute to the Ladies Literary Club that began in Salt Lake City in the 1870s, where tea sipping and good books were what it meant to be civilized,” said J. Seth Anderson, co-founder and co-Queen of The Queens’ Tea. “The Queens’ Tea is growing and this exposure for our campaign will help us continue to bring to Utah and the US the finest quality tea,” said Ferguson.
