The Bliss Tea & Treats franchise was founded in 2018 by Rushell Gordon. The brand's mission is to ensure that everyone has a great tea experience. Gordon grew up in Panama and drank tea everyday. Next to water, tea is the world's second most consumed beverage! Despite this fact, finding great tea may seem difficult in the U.S. Finding a great variety can be a chore, as well. This is where Bliss Tea & Treats comes in. The tea franchise offers more than 40 artisanal options that aren't typical in the grocery store. Gordon studied at the Royal Tea Academy and is a certified tea specialist. The experience has expanded her perspective of the origin of teas, its benefits and the business opportunities surrounding the popular beverage. The brand is knowledgeable about the teas that it blends and creates memorable experiences for customers like high tea, special occasions and events. Bliss stands out from the competition because of its attention to detail and the big picture.
