How did Inca Tea start? 
The story of Inca Tea began when Ryan Florio (Inca Tea Founder and TeaEO) and his friends hiked a treacherous Peruvian mountain trail with the help of their Sherpa Edgar. Edgar introduced them to an amazing Ancient Tea recipe combining boiling water, freshly cut apples and Purple Corn, which Peruvians consider a super food that fights against a host of medical conditions.. Discovered by the Incas long ago, Purple Corn is a significant source of powerful antioxidants and anthocyanins that have several healing properties, including cell regeneration, cholesterol reduction, blood flow regulation and more. The Ancient recipe resulted in an energizing and refreshing tea that aided them on their climb together. Upon Ryan’s return home to the U.S., he quit his job, cashed in his 401K, took a second mortgage out on his home and started a company called Inca Tea, the first U.S. company to use the ingredient Purple Corn. In addition to winning several awards, Inca Tea’s sales continue to climb at big-brand stores around the country and online orders continue to come in from all over the world.
