10 years ago, Allie went to her yearly doctor appointment and complained of depression and rolling highs and lows. Her doctor said the symptoms were because of the amount of caffeine she was consuming (3-5 cups a day). To be fair at the time, she was working a full time job in PR from 9-6pm and waitressing at a nightclub from 10pm-4am, so caffeine had become as important as water. She quit coffee immediately, went through horrible withdrawals and then started to search for a healthier way to feel uplifted when she was tired or needed a break. Herbal tea became a go to, but finding great tasting, fun herbal or non caffeinated teas was like finding a needle in a haystack and so she started blending her own teas, which eventually led to the creation of Leaves of Leisure. The launch collection is a series of 6 teas based on favorite leisure activities and each one is chalked full of detoxifying, mood boosting and overall wellness ingredients. Each tea is made to inspire you from the first glance to the last sip.
