Free Your Tea owner, Knud Berthlsen, hails from Norway. He moved here 11 years ago, never saw the need to leave, and now calls the New Orleans neighborhood Bayou St. John home. 

With a passion for delicious, high-quality tea, Knud developed Free Your Tea to share this love with everyone else. Knud, and his assistant Caroline, can be found toiling away in their CBD office on Poydras. Their experience with international sourcing, e-commerce, online marketing, logistics, and startups – they can now take you on this ride of experiencing international teas.

Tea is the most widely consumed beverage on the planet. Fall in love, or find your new favorite teas, with Free your Tea bringing them right to your door.


1. Tell me about Free Your Tea. 

It’s a personalized tea subscription that ships in the USA and internationally. It’s like Netflix for tea. When you subscribe you get a sampler box and rate all of those teas. We also ask for your tea preferences – what do you like, dislike, and not know about. We also ask things like what time of the day do you drink tea, do you like loose leaf tea, just a variety of questions to better know you.

After that, we send you a different tea each month based on these preferences.  

Our basic subscription, called “The Sip” is enough tea for a cup a day.


2. How long have you been in business?

About a year now.


3. How do people find you online? 

freeyourtea.com and also on Facebook & Instagram @freeyourtea


4. What is lesser known about your business that you wish more people knew? 

We also have a business subscription option. You get a 100 cups worth of tea each month with a nice rack to put them on too.


5. Lagniappe Info.
