My Name is Francina, and I am the founder and owner of Be Still Tea.
I was born and raised in Zimbabwe which has deeply influenced my life's path. I'm a proud mother of five beautiful children and happily married to the love of my life.
I have an unbridled passion for both tea and people, and my journey with Be Still Tea began when I realized that waiting for retirement to pursue my dream wasn't necessary.
Life, however, had other plans. Through a challenging and traumatic experience, I learned the significance of stillness. In my darkest moments, I found healing and self-discovery by allowing myself to connect with who I truly am and feel.
While it was painful, I gradually healed and slowly grew into myself. One of the greatest lessons I learned at that time was that my effort and striving was not going to change all the difficult things I was facing. I needed to finally stop running and Be still!
I began to make time for myself every day to stop and listen. To Be Still. I would brew a cup of tea, disconnecting myself from everything else to be fully present and listen to my life. It wasn't easy at first, but this practice allowed me to refocus myself and brought to light areas that needed my attention. This realization ultimately inspired me to start Be Still Tea.
Our mission is to help people create space to Be Still, connect with their true selves, and embrace their emotions. We're here to support you on your journey to self-acceptance, one cup of tea at a time. Our hope is that our teas will help you illuminate your inner light, letting it shine brightly in the world.
Being still with tea has made me more present, kind, and intentional in my life. Will you join me on this transformative journey to stillness, one cup of tea at a time?
