Hello Erika, thanks so much for chatting with us today about your boutique tea range! Tell us all about Beauteaful and the inspiration behind your brand…
I decided to start the brand when I went home to where I grew up in August 2020. I was visiting my Mum, and she went out to the garden and we made tea from ingredients in the backyard. I was on maternity leave at the time and my first words to baby Emily were ‘hey beautiful’ so I decided to incorporate this into the name and that’s how I came up with Beauteaful Inspired by Mum. The wellness range came from teas that I needed for myself and my family for specific reasons. Having just given birth to my daughter, Emily was a colic baby and I also wanted to increase my milk supply. I had these teas blended specifically for me initially, and then decided to launch them on my site. The other blends were based on health issues my family were experiencing and I wanted to help them.

You also have an amazing summer cocktail and iced teas range, what delicious flavours do you have for those hot summer days and nights?
I’m a non drinker…for just over 2 years now. In an effort to be healthier as a result of illness in the family. However, sometimes I still feel like a drink! The cocktail inspired range still has the placebo of drinking or being on holidays, especially when I’m having a bad day at work. The only cocktail you can drink at work! Our cocktail and iced tea range includes Mango Daiquiri, Appletini, Screwdriver, Cosmopolitan, Strawberry Daiquiri, Mojito, Turkish Apple and Strawberries and Cream so there really is a flavour for everyone’s taste. We also have sample sizes available if you would like to try a few different teas to begin with.
