The Steep & Mellow Origin Story
Meg Pederson founded Steep & Mellow in 2021, when she found herself out of University and without a job during the COVID pandemic. As an environmental enthusiast, Pederson was disgruntled by the waste and plastic pollution caused by drinking tea. She had recently learned about how adaptogens and nootropics interact with each other in food and beverages to help the brain and body, and she decided to combine these two interests to create a sustainable, functional tea.
Inspired by 1970s hippie culture, Steep & Mellow launched with whimsical packaging to be inviting for everyone and spread love. Pederson wanted to create a brand that did good and felt good in all aspects. Between the sustainable way the tea is made, their good for the body and mind blends, and their fun brand design, we believe she hit the nail on the head.
