By: Fortuna Alexander, Owner of FAH Tea
FAH Bissap Tea is a brewed & bottled, tart & tangy hibiscus tea, steeped in my cultural history and journey from West Africa to Minnesota.
FAH Tea’s story follows my own. Our hibiscus flowers are imported from the gateway to West Africa, Senegal, and our proceeds support the development of an orphanage, school, and clinic in Liberia. I became an orphan in Liberia when I lost my mother at the tender age of 10. Years of civil war and Ebola outbreak in Liberia have drastically increased the number of parent-less children. I brew this traditional tea to honor my mother and support these children who share this experience with me.
