Founders Jordan Hoffman and Alexandre Staples met in spring 2011.

Alexandre's wide-ranging hobbies complemented Jordan's then untapped entrepreneurial tendencies, and the two have since spent untold hours brainstorming, experimenting, and perfecting their ideas. 

The shining star of this project-oriented union is the line of capsaicin-infused tea blends, made in small batches here in the heart of Somerville, Massachusetts. Combining an existing enthusiasm for spiciness with a growing command of taste and flavor combinations, the folks behind Pelican Tea have developed blends that they have been enjoying considerably, and are very pleased to be offering it here.

We strive to deliver to you exceptionally fresh product from around the globe that combines the health benefits of both hot pepper capsaicin and loose leaf teas.  As always, feel free to
contact us if you have any questions, concerns, or compliments.
