Ellis Island Tea

A cold tea brew, this Detroit-based, naturally sourced tea is an old Jamaican family recipe.

“I’ve always wanted my nutritional facts or the ingredient lists to be something you can actually read, and not look like a science project. My short, simple ingredient list is always something that I’ve strived to do. So it’s a real product. And first and foremost, it tastes amazing, and I think that’s originally what draws people in. And then when they see the person behind the brand, and my agenda and passion, I think that's when the loyalty ends up kicking in,” said Ellis Brown.
