Equalitea - Made in Massachusetts – Woman owned, POC owned –
"Pause, Sip and Enjoy the moments" is the motto of owner Mary Fernandes. Mary has been involved in government leadership and civic engagement for years. Her model for these teas comes from the suffragist women of California in their organizing of the 1911 election on women's suffrage. The group hosted afternoon tea parties to support their mission, selling Equality, Suffrage, and Votes for Women teas throughout the Golden State. These efforts raised awareness and revenue for the women's right to vote movement and encouraged women to run for office. The Equalitea line features three blends. Courage (herbal), Harmony (green), and Morning Brew (black). Mary donates a portion of her proceeds to organizations that promote racial and social justice.
