We started Teshuah Tea Company as a way to help others especially those who have been abused and forgotten by the rest of society. My business partner Andrew is a missionary to Asia. Not only does he work with leper villages and the underground church in communist countries, he and his team also rescue girls trapped in sex slavery. Some of these girls are as young as 11 years old. Andrew has started a rescue and rehab house in Asia called Teshuah House and has rescued 40+ girls. His staff work with the girls to get them the help they need spiritually, physically, and emotionally as well as to teach them skills that will help them provide for their families. We purchase our tea, coasters, bracelets, and coffee from the girls giving them a ready market.
A majority of our profit goes back to Teshuah House to further our work there. The money helps pay for food, shelter, and clothing for the girls as well as meeting their other needs. It also is being matched by a gentleman from Asia who was a former brothel owner. He became a Christian and set the girls he owned free and now helps get others set free. He owns several legitimate businesses including tea and coffee farms and sells these products to the girls wholesale. He is helping them set up a tea shop in Asia as well as helping them produce these products for us. He has set aside a large sum of money that he is using to match the profits and donations that come into Teshuah House. These combined funds will be used to purchase another rescue and rehab house so we can rescue even more girls and provide for their needs while teaching them valuable business and life skills.
