Leaves of Leisure is a luxury herbal tea company with a mission to help people find mindful moments throughout the day by taking self-care breaks. In a world full of drinks with sugar, syrups and caffeine, Leaves of Leisure tea was created to help bring a sense of nostalgia, joy and calm to the everyday moments of life without all the additives. We don’t all have the luxury to get outside on hard days or take a bath when we are stressed, so Leaves of Leisure tea brings it to you in 3-5 minutes of steep time.
10 years ago, Allie went to her yearly doctor appointment and complained of depression and rolling highs and lows. Her doctor said the symptoms were because of the amount of caffeine she was consuming (3-5 cups a day). To be fair at the time, she was working a full time job in PR from 9-6pm and waitressing at a nightclub from 10pm-4am, so caffeine had become as important as water.
Quitting coffee immediately, she went through horrible withdrawals and then started to search for a healthier way to feel uplifted when she was tired or needed a break. Herbal tea became a go to, but finding great tasting, fun herbal or non caffeinated teas was like finding a needle in a haystack and so she started blending her own teas, which eventually led to the creation of Leaves of Leisure.
She has tried every wellness gimmick and trend and holds to the belief that the best medicine is a hike outside, a warm bath, a good book and a hot cup of herbal tea. The launch collection is a series of 6 teas based on favorite leisure activities and each one is full of detoxifying, mood boosting and overall wellness ingredients. Each tea is made to inspire you from the first glance to the last sip.
Allie is the modern day "Renaissance Women", having worked multiple jobs from the age of 16, she now holds the titles of PR Consultant, fit model and entrepreneur. Working endlessly for the last decade of her life, Allie has devoted time to perfect her definition of wellness and self care.
