U graduates launch tea company with a cause to help homeless youth in Salt Lake.

The Queen’s Tea Helps the Homeless One Cup at a Time

Two U students are following their dreams — and taste buds — with the launch of their tea company, The Queen’s Tea. After discovering a mutual interest in the popular beverage and being discouraged by the boring selection available at the supermarket, the pair decided to turn their hobby of making their own teas into a business. A year later, with a blend of history and science, Seth Anderson, a graduate student in history, and Michael Ferguson, a graduate student in bioengineering, are preparing for the launch of their new line of teas and corresponding non-profit charity, DigniTEA, which will provide food, water, clothing and other essentials to Salt Lake City’s homeless youth. “We partnered with the Homeless Youth Resource Center in Salt Lake City to create a sustainable mechanism for financial support,” Anderson said. “Five dollars from the sale of every tin or bag of DigniTEA will be donated.”
