In 2020, during the height of quarantine, Meg Pederson imagined the perks of having a tea with ingredients designed to help her body and mind focus, feel energized, and get better sleep. Moreover, she was exasperated with the waste caused by conventionally packaged tea and wanted a functional option that also left a lighter footprint on the planet. With these features as driving forces, Meg got to work and created the brand, steep & mellow!

Their tea blends boast a generous mix of adaptogens like Rhodiola to nurture the body and nootropics like Eleuthero to feed your mind and improve cognitive function. These natural additives that have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries work in tandem to nourish with every sip.

With steep & mellow, tea lovers everywhere will enjoy delicious, plant-powered blends from a brand that works every day to make an impact, inspire others, and innovate with integrity.

Functional Tea with Flare

steep & mellow places a strong emphasis on ethical sourcing, flawless taste, and eco-packaging when crafting their unique teas. For starters, each component of their products is compostable! Most tea bags are made from plastics that can leech microplastics into the body, which is not groovy. What's more, when plastic tea bags are thrown away, microplastics can also creep into soils and oceans, contaminating ecosystems and landing in foods. steep & mellow does not jive with this, so from their teabags to wrappers to tea boxes, everything is plant-based. The teabags, strings, and tags are made from a corn-based fiber that is durable enough for hot water steeping and that will readily break down when added to a home compost. Each beautifully designed box is made from paper fibers and printed with plant-based inks, making them safe for the recycling bin or home composting systems. Furthermore, the tea wrappers are made with a wood-based material that is compostable at any industrial composting facility. The tea blends are thoughtfully created with all of the good stuff and none of the bad. steep & mellow starts by creating the perfect blend of organic herbs for each of their flavors like the floral aromas of chamomile and rose petals for a calming tea from their Dream blend, or the fruity blend of goji, juniper, and strawberries for an afternoon pick me up from their Flow tea. Then, each blend has an added dose of adaptogens and nootropics. Don't be alarmed though! Adaptogens and nootropics are herbs, roots, and mushrooms that contain properties to ease the physical responses of stress while improving overall performance in the body and the mind. They have been utilized in traditional eastern medicines for thousands of years and provide a clean and plant-based source of nutrients that make tea drinking fun and functional. Some ingredients even have the power of both! For example, ashwagandha helps to reduce the body's physical reactions to stress while working to promote calming feelings and ease anxiousness. Although tea is the second most consumed beverage globally after water, agricultural practices to keep up with demand often include excessive use of pesticides and herbicides. By sourcing organic ingredients, steep & mellow ensures their teas are free from harmful chemicals and ecosystems are protected from toxic runoff. Now that's a cup of tea we can feel good about!
