My Cup of Tea is more than just a tea company. It is a social enterprise changing the lives of its neighbors in Orange Mound by providing jobs.

Its latest Memphis-themed tea box features the work of Orange Mound artist Andre Miller.

This is the ninth tea box with a Memphis motif for My Cup of Tea, but the first to feature the artwork of a professional Black artist.

“Our best-known products are the eight teas in our Memphis-themed line,” said Carey Moore, My Cup of Tea founder and CEO. “We wanted to add a new tea and thought engaging a local artist would be a way we could further our support for Orange Mound and Black artists.”

The box’s unveiling on Oct. 27 was the culmination of a process in which My Cup of Tea partnered with Orange Mound Arts Council to issue a request for proposals from professional Black artists with an Orange Mound connection. A diverse committee of representatives from both organizations reviewed the submissions and chose Miller to design the artwork.
