We are frequently asked questions about our company, teas, tea shirts and even a couple really odd questions which I’ll leave off of this page for the sake of you the reader. Some of the most common questions we receive are listed below.

Have a question for us? Send it over to mail@sweetteajunkie.com with the subject line ” FAQ ” and if it’s a really good one we’ll answer it and post it here.

What year did you begin in business??

Sweet Tea Junkie was founded in 2005, read Our Story

How did you come up with the business name??

The name Sweet Tea Junkie came from a waitress at IHOP. She used to call a group of friends who stopped in for breakfast a few times a week the “Sweet Tea Junkies” as they would drink 5-6 glasses of Sweet Tea each, per visit.

Where are you located??

Sweet Tea Junkie was founded in, and is currently headquartered in beautiful and sunny (ie. if you visit during the summertime you’re going to wonder why people live here because its so hot) Sebring, Florida.

Who is the Founder of Sweet Tea Junkie??

Michael Dorman is our founder and owner. He also serves as our taster and blend master, ensuring that each single sourced tea or tea blend meets strict quality standards.

What makes your tea better than tea from the grocery store??

We source our teas using only the finest tasting tea leaves available. Most of the tea you find at the grocery store are of the “Fannings” or “Tea Dust” classifications. This in basic terms means the tea leaves have been destroyed and stuffed into a tea bag (for the sake of convenience), this results in generally a much lower quality of tea.

Our teas are loose leaf and whole leaf, this means that the actual leaves that were plucked from the Camellia Sinensis (tea bush) are either wholly intact or mostly intact. When steeping, this allows for the entire leaf to open up filling your glass with a burst of the highest quality flavor. We pride ourselves in providing you with great tasting, high quality tea.

Do your teas come pre-sweetened??

No, while our name is Sweet Tea Junkie our teas contain no sugar or sweeteners. This is done so that you have the freedom to sweeten the teas to your precise liking (or leave them un-sweetened).

What if I don't like Sweet or Iced Tea??

While our teas are sourced and blended with the goal of the absolute best glass of Iced Sweet Tea in the South, they all make incredibly delicious hot teas. See individual product descriptions for our recommendations.

Anything new you are working on??

We’re a pretty driven bunch, and always have a million ideas in our collective heads. There are always new tea blends being tested, but only the best will make it to you.

We’re always researching better and easier ways to brew tea, and thus you may find some really amazing tea products from us in the not too distant future.

We are also in the process of growing a few Camellia Sinensis (tea plants), this is a multi-year project but it helps us understand the complexities of tea and helps us reach the eventual goal of selling our own domestically grown line of teas.

I want to order, is your site secure??
