CapeTalk Small Business Awards

Lady Bonin’s Tea is taking coffee obsessed Cape Town by storm

Click here to reward a small business that provides great service with a nomination for 2015's Small Business Awards with CapeTalk and Sage One.

Lady Bonin’s Tea is a well-known, socially responsible brand that sources, develops, blends and distributes unique high quality loose leaf teas.

Now they have been nominated for CapeTalk's 2015 Small Business Awards with Sage One.

By radically shifting the consumer’s experience and perception of tea, Lady Bonin is championing tea trends in South Africa.

Jessica Bonin has self-funded and independently built the business over the last four years from South Africa’s first food truck selling take away tea to an internationally followed brand that distributes throughout South Africa.

She plans to start exporting within the next six months.

I have always had a love of tea. I employ five people currently. We are based at The Woodstock Exchange and we do private functions as well. The tea industry is evolving and consumers are looking for healthier alternatives that are more sustainable.

Jessica Bonin, founder of Lady Bonin’s Tea

The curated premium loose leaf teas are blended and purveyed in accordance with nature to provide an abundance of health benefits.
