"Our flavors harken back to fun times before Grateful Dead shows, where open-minded people joined together and celebrated the marvel of living."
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, February 02, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Love Some Tea, a leading tea brand and importer of rare, plantation free teas from Thailand, is proud to announce the release of the much-anticipated Grateful Tea Collection, inspired by the music, values, and lifestyle of the iconic brand the Grateful Dead. The brand's six flavors are now available for $20 per canister.
Love Some Tea, the Grateful Dead, and Warner Music Artist Services/Rhino Records are working in conjunction to deliver high quality teas that reflect the band's love for delicious tea and passion around global environmental conservation. "Being Grateful Dead fans and obsessed with ethically farmed and delicious teas, we are thrilled to share our exclusive collection with the world," says Scott Fernandez, CEO of Love Some Tea.
Grown in the wild sloping mountains of Northern Thailand, Grateful Tea from Love Some Tea is fertilizer, herbicide, and chemical free. Each tea leaf is picked by hand by Hill Tribe Farmers and shipped to customers in sustainable packaging that features recycled paper and environmentally friendly inks.
"We live and breathe the environment, just as the Grateful Dead have since they first hit the stage in 1965. Our commitment to ethically grown and farmed tea leaves and sustainable packaging made the union between Love Some Tea and the Grateful Dead a perfect match for sharing delicious, healthful teas with those who will appreciate them most," says Fernandez.
The "Plantation Free" method of growing and harvesting Grateful Teas from Love Some Tea sees to it that no land is cleared for planting, and machinery is never used to harvest. It is done by hand with their friends and partners, the Hill Tribes of Northern Thailand.
"We're certain that our sustainable farming and harvesting methods make tea healthier and more delicious for everyone who drinks them. It's literally as pure and ruggedly natural as can be," says Fernandez. "Which is why our tea leaves are both potent in flavor and effect."
The line features six new flavors that are now available:
- Cosmic Coconut - A black tea with aromatic coconut notes.
- Passionate Prophet - Green tea with a passion fruit infusion.
- Workingman's Blend - An everyman's, rich black tea with a zing.
- Tropical Weather - A refreshing green and black blend for adventurers at heart.
- Ramblin' Apple - A yummy apple tea, with a hint of peach.
- Minty-O - A freshly calming tea that tastes like freshly picked mint leaves.
"Our flavors harken back to fun times before Grateful Dead shows, where open-minded people joined together and celebrated the marvel of living. It was all about loving kindness, and our teas strive to provide the comfort and positive energy everyone craves while listening to the sweet songs that rock their souls," says Fernandez.

About Love Some Tea
Co-founded by Rob Force, Matt Cothran, and Scott Fernandez in 2016, Love Some Tea is an emerging brand that specializes in plantation-free teas from the sloping mountains of Northern Thailand. It supports the mission of the Lahu and Karen tribes to share fertilizer, herbicide, and chemical-free tea leaves with the world. Between the months of November and March, the tea leaves are left to grow completely untouched, allowing for the plants to recover and repair themselves naturally. The result of their efforts is some of the most delicious, nutrient-rich tea leaves available on the market today. The company is also committed to 100% sustainable and recyclable packaging in their commitment to being stewards of the earth. In 2020, Love Some Tea has partnered with the Grateful Dead, Warner Music Artist Services, and Rhino Records to release an exclusive six-flavor tea collection coined Grateful Teas. The tea is inspired by the music, values, passion for sustainability, and lifestyle of the iconic band.
About Grateful Dead
Grateful Dead is a social and musical phenomenon that grew into a genuine American treasure. In 1965, an entire generation was linked together by common ideals, gathering by the hundreds and thousands. This movement created a seamless connection between the band and its fans. As the band toured, Dead Heads would follow. Not because it was a part of popular culture, but because it is a true counterculture that exists to this very day-one that earnestly believes in the value of its beliefs. By 1995, Grateful Dead had attracted the most concert goers in the history of the music business, and today remain one of the all-time leaders in concert ticket sales. Eventually, the caravan evolved into a community with various artists, craftsmen and entrepreneurs supplying a growing demand for merchandise that connected them to the music. Today, the connection is as strong as ever. The band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in 1994 and received a Grammy® Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007. Their final tally of 2,318 total concerts remains a world record.
