Meet Shannon Joseph and
Guerby Joseph: CEO and President of Joseph's Tea.
Two hard-working entrepreneurs from New York City, Guerby and Shannon met while running their own businesses and looking for their soulmates. They found everything they were searching for in each other, fell in love, and began to work together on their passion projects. The motivated pair love to travel and explore new spaces— especially beautiful and unique tea shops. They share a dream of creating magical experiences for people looking for a quiet break or a shared moment over a healthy cup of tea! They wanted to create a space for others to also make memories, meet up, and fall in love. The pandemic opened Shannon and Guerby’s eyes in March 2020. When they experienced loved ones getting ill, saw businesses closed, and were confined to their small apartment in Queens; priorities changed. Health, wellness, love, happiness, and relationships became more important to them than ever. The pair decided to combine their talents and efforts and make a difference by making a change in their own lifestyle and launching Joseph's Tea as an online store to be able to help more people in need of the health benefits and serenity tea can bring. They moved to Tampa Florida in June 2020, Launched Joseph's Tea as an online tea shop in July 2020, got engaged September 2020, bought their first home in November 2020 and got married on May 23, 2021! They opened Joseph's Tea Room and Shop in Clearwater in September 2021. This first brick and mortar location took a ton of hard work and love to open. At first, they could only seat up to 25 guests in their dining room and quickly saw an opportunity to expand and take a leap of faith once again. In October 2022 they added 2,000 sq. ft. to their Tea Room location with a large expansion. Now, the beautiful and bright Joseph's Tea Room can accommodate up to 80 people in their main dining room! In January of 2023 the Josephs welcomed their first-born child, their son Denzel Maximilian Joseph to the world! The Josephs are so excited to be building something
that they can share with the community and their family. Their hearts are in their business and with their customers and it shows.
Joseph’s Tea represents the couple's commitment to healthy living, wellness, and community. Their tea shop highlights a carefully curated selection of delicious, high-quality teas meant for sharing a special moment of reflection or chatting with a friend!
Tea is a name given to a lot of brews, but purists consider only green tea, black tea, white tea, oolong tea, and pu-erh tea the real thing. They are all derived from the Camellia sinensis plant, a shrub native to China and India, and contain unique antioxidants called flavonoids. The most potent of these, known as ECGC, may help against free radicals that can contribute to cancer, heart disease, and clogged arteries.
All these teas also have caffeine and theanine, which affect the brain and seem to heighten mental alertness.
The more processed the tea leaves, usually the less polyphenol content. Polyphenols include flavonoids. Oolong and black teas are oxidized or fermented, so they have lower concentrations of polyphenols than green tea; but their antioxidizing power is still high.
Here's what some studies have found about the potential health benefits of tea:
Made from herbs, fruits, seeds, or roots steeped in hot water, herbal teas have lower concentrations of antioxidants than green, white, black, and oolong teas. Their chemical compositions vary widely depending on the plant used.
Varieties include ginger, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, hibiscus, jasmine, rosehip, mint, rooibos (red tea), chamomile, and echinacea.
Limited research has been done on the health benefits of herbal teas, but claims that they help to shed pounds, stave off colds, and bring on restful sleep are largely unsupported.
Here are some findings:
Bergamot is the Italian lime which forms the base of Earl Grey.
Tea Palace sources the finest organic lavender flowers from Provence for the best fragrance, taste and health benefits.
Raspberries and raspberry leaf have different health benefits mainly aiding women in different stages of pregnancy.
