Scout Urling graduated with a Bachelor of Science in pre-medicine, and then began studying herbs, via traveling, apprenticeships, and independent research. She started making tea blends as a hobby. When demand for them snowballed, she decided to turn her teas into a real business. Having worked on local organic farms throughout her college career, it was natural to partner with those farmers to source her ingredients. Her search for the freshest, highest quality botanicals led her to cultivate similar relationships with small tea gardens and growers around the world, enabling her to begin offering caffeinated teas and chocolate as well as her original herbal teas.
