My Cup of Tea is a non-profit, social enterprise located in the heart of Orange Mound, considered the oldest African American community in America.

We import the highest quality tea from tea estates and gardens in the Far East to The House at Orange Mound, where it is weighed, re-formatted, and packaged for sale by women who impact the historic neighborhood.

Their lives are stabilized and dignified through training and purposeful work. Resources for personal and professional growth are included daily to enable them to provide for their families and serve their community.

You can also directly donate to My Cup of Tea.
