Steepologie Teas

We (Joe and Andrea) started Steepologie Teas in 2016 because of our vision to bring the widest selection and freshest offering of loose  leaf teas to consumers in an experiential setting. We wanted our customers to feel as though they were embarking on a tea journey the moment they walk through the door or order at steepologie.com to. We opened our first store in downtown Seattle in early 2017 and since then we've opened 4 more locations due to the high quality of our offering and loyal customers. However, the coronavirus pandemic has devastated our small family owned business and resulted in a complete halt of traffic at our 5 stores and mandated closures for several weeks, but the bills keep mounting. 46986380_1585353315128749_r.jpegOur first store and Flagship is in Downtown Seattle with 250+ teas offered loose or hot/iced!

The proceeds from this fund will 100% benefit our fantastic Team Members by funding payroll, rent, utilities and other expenses associated with running our 5 stores and website allowing us to expand our shipping capabilities and re-open our retail locations.

We are blessed that 1 of our landlords has helped us with reduced rent, but that is it. Everyone else has gone dark, has told us "we will see" and one of them even sent us a late rent notice with penalty. In short: your gifted funds are needed NOW - despite all the "relief" being touted in the news we have received $0 from any source...this support will allow us to continue to keep our highest talented Team Members onboard as we get back to re-opening our stores.

Please help us! We want to continue to expand and grow and open throughout the rest of the country! Everyone’s donations matter to us, but we would like to offer the following rewards:

$100: $50 Gift Card valid in-store or online

$250: Bamboo Tea Infuser Tumbler (half price hot/iced tea for life at any of our stores) + $100 gift card valid in-store or online

$500: Customized Steepologie Teas Bamboo Tea Infuser Tumbler (laser engraved with your first name) (half price hot/iced tea for life at any of our stores) + $100 gift card valid in-store or online + Steepologie Apolis Tote Bag
