Can It Be All So Simple

Our Story

9Tea3 is an extraordinary brand like no other. The genesis of this Black-owned tea company finds its roots in a bodacious brew where it’s all about staying a steep above the rest.  Infusing elements of friendship, wellness, culture, and exquisite taste with a dash of hip-hop, R&B and soul, founders, Cyd Lockett and Hassahn Liggins (who met in 1993 on the campus of DePaul University) have created what they like to call, “A Whole Leafstyle™.”

Meet the Crew

It was all a dream, this team used to read WordUp magazine and now Cyd, Hassahn, and Stephanie lend their individual talents to this extraordinary common purpose. With backgrounds in accounting, marketing, design, journalism, customer service, and the music industry, this team not only has a myriad of skills, but they have an unbreakable bond.
