Hi there! We are Katarina & Kyrstyn Scott, the Founders of Emerald Coast Alternatives, your Online Herbal Tea Shop. We are passionate about designing place corpse blends that make you feel more alive! In our holistic and mental health careers, and through our recovery journeys (2-10 years of sobriety), we discovered a need for accessible, effective, and delicious herbal teas!

Our customers love that they no longer have to sacrifice FLAVOR in order to FEEL better. These tasty teas even have some of the most unlikely non-tea drinkers excited about tea as a natural remedy to help overcome the stress of daily life. Customers have reported relief with symptoms of anxiety, PTSD, pms, insomnia, inflammation, and headaches.

Currently, we are growing our community on the social media platform TikTok, teaching people the power of plants, self-love/acceptance, and emotional regulation tools. Our shop SELLS OUT continuously as we rapidly grow and expand.

  • What do I need to use loose herbal tea?

    Great Question! You steep your herbs in boiling water for your desired time. HOW you steep them is preference. We pefer to use a metal steeper.

    You can find these at your local grocery store in the tea/coffee section usually!

    Some customers love to use cotton tea bags, coffee machines, or just allowing the loose herbs to steep freely.

    Customers Preference!

  • How much tea can I get from one pack?

    On average we use 2- 6 grams of loose herbal tea (depending on how strong you like your tea). We sell our loose tea blends in 50 grams pouches and 100 gram pouches. On average 10-15 cups of tea per 50grams.

  • How should I store my loose herbal teas?

    In a dark and cool place. Our Eco-friendly packaging is great for storage however we highly recommend glass jars!

    Glass jars are always a great go to for tea storage.
