Food Business Services

Tea is on trend. Are you?

If you run a restaurant or high-end bar, brew craft beer, make small-batch sweets, or otherwise work in the realm of food rather than tea, then we extend our services to you, too!

After all, tea is SO hot right now, and you can get ahead of the curve by getting the coaching you need to understand and use tea as an ingredient and sales add-on alike.

With over a decade of experience in the tea industry, Lindsey is the go-to tea professional for tea coaching, consulting, copywriting and more.

Her tea recipes and tea-infused-food recipes have appeared in numerous tea establishments, publications and tea marketing materials.

Here's what some of our clients have to say about her work...

At our new restaurant, we were struggling with how to develop a non-alcoholic drinks menu, including but not limited to hot & iced tea, until we scheduled a call with Lindsey. We have a uniquely small kitchen area that needed special consideration when making a non-alcoholic drinks menu. On the call, Lindsey helped us with tea selection, tea vendors, preparation instructions, as well as maximizing the variety of non-alcoholic drinks with extremely limited storage and fridge space.  She was also very knowledgeable & helpful in the area of unique and on-trend drink selections that my husband and I were unfamiliar with.

Our first brunch using the new menu and methodology was very successful & went pretty smoothly. Customers appreciated the unique variety of sweet iced and hot teas. 

In the weeks since we launched the non-alcoholic drink menu, our drink margins have improved. We are proud to offer more choices than just beer & wine. Many customers who would have just stuck with water in the past are now choosing to enjoy our other options. 

Our customers are happy with the options and our servers are relieved to have a manageable & well-received non-alcoholic drinks menu!

We loved working with Lindsey & count ourselves lucky to have her as a continued resource to call on as we change our menu seasonally.

"In the nine years I've known her, Lindsey has shown herself to be incredibly passionate, knowledgable, and great to work with.

I fully recommend working with Lindsey."

Whether you’re aiming to up the tea service game at your establishment or to get the perfect tea for your culinary creations, we’re here to make it happen.

Foodservice coaching packages start at 90 minutes for $450 (which is nothing compared to the cost of trying to muddle through all the literature and sales-y pitches of tea companies who just want you to buy from them, regardless of whether THEIR tea is what YOU need).
