Jenni-Lyn Williams, Chief Snark Officer at Snarky Tea, hopes the Sharks invest in her tea company that seeks to empower women while delivering delicious tea in Shark Tank episode 905. Williams, a former financial marketing consultant, started the business in 2016 at the suggestion of her daughter. She wants to build a business that isn't an overly sexualized brand. In doing so, she delivers “delicious tea and a boost of confidence.”
Snarky is a good way to describe the tea. There's a tea for every situation the tea drinking woman wants. With names like Wake The F**k Up, Get Your Sh*t Together, Namaste Mother F**ker, Calm The F**k Down, Fierce B*tch, and Get Your A**In Bed, the snark meter is at “11.”
Williams was a hit at the 2017 Oscars. Snarky Tea was a featured gift in the gifting suite and a well received hot beverage among the guests. Williams sources her tea through an FDA registered importer in China. After that, she ships the raw tea to Philadelphia and blends them in a USDA licensed and inspected facility.
You can buy the tea at any number of independent tea shops across the country with the majority of retailers in the northeast. They're also available on Amazon and the company website. Each tin costs $12.99 and comes with 15 whole leaf tea sachets. There are different blends with different flavors, caffeine levels and benefits – like a soothing tea or a tea that's good for hangovers. Williams likely wants a Shark's help getting national distribution deals with large grocery chains. Will a Shark like this Snark?
