Love Tea

Love Tea

James and Chastity Shelby

Love Tea started off as “the perfect mistake” according to Chicago couple, James and Chastity Shelby. The original concoction wasn’t planned, but was just something Chastity threw together one night when James was feeling sick. James loved the tea and started requesting that Chastity serve it iced whenever family and friends would visit. Guests raved about the drink and a friend in the food industry offered to test its success at his restaurant. The tea sold out daily during its test run and the Shelby's knew they were on to something.

The Shelby's started their business, Love Tea LLC, in the summer of 2015 and have introduced seven additional tea flavors since their beginning. Love Tea is offered in several local restaurants and the Shelby's hope to one day see it offered in stores like Whole Foods and Marianos. Like most entrepreneurial endeavors, building their business has required a great deal of commitment and hard work. The duo personally handles every aspect of their business--from marketing to tea production to delivering orders. They say being in business together as husband and wife has been amazing! "It has pulled out so much strength, determination, and dedication ... not only for the business but for our marriage."

This summer, Overflow added Love Tea to its drink menu. It's a perfect match with Overflow Coffee Bar--not only does it add to the variety of the drink menu, Love Tea gives provides customers with an opportunity to add value to the community by supporting local business. As the owner of Overflow Coffee Bar, Entrenuity is committed to supporting entrepreneurs for real success by providing opportunities for pre-existing businesses to increase sustainability. Love Tea is the third small business Overflow Coffee Bar has partnered with in the past 7 months.

Overflow is featuring Love Tea's Sweet Heart strawberry lemonade, Sunshine honey lemonade, Grandma's Love traditional sweet tea, and Couples Retreat mint lemonade. 

Love Tea can be found at Overflow Coffee Bar 7 days a week during our regular business hours. Feel free to stop in and order a Love Tea to go with one of of our delicious sandwiches!
