In 2018, my friend 📝Jessica Cail gifted me a zip loc baggie of her 📝Longevitea; a blend inspired by 'The Island Where People Forget to Die' which she formulated with ingredients backed by peer-reviewed research. She'd made it as a holiday gift for friends a few years running, but this was the first year I'd received it.
I fell in love with the genesis story of the project and the passion she'd put into the formulation, but the deliciousness of the tea truly put me over the top. I was persistent in my pursuit to acquire more (without waiting a year). Months later, Jess credited me on the Our Roots page when her annual holiday gift became a tea company.
After a dozen similar requests, followed by one friend following me around waving a wad of cash begging me to just make ONE batch, I decided that if I could make something this healthy taste good enough that everyone wanted more, maybe I was onto something.
Every order of 📝Longeviteas is filled by Jess and her husband, Bob, from their apartment. Since she launched, I've been drinking two+ pots a day and my favorite is the 📝Immunity; a tasty chai with loads of anti-inflammatories and antioxidants.
