My name is Courtney Cara Meyer and I'm the founder.
So Honeyed Tea was a brain child for quite some time, I think I mentally started this journey before lock-down in my country was issued. I previously worked for a modeling agency and while I loved my job immensely, there were times when I’d wonder if there could be more to what I was doing - a type of work that would leave me feeling more fulfilled at the end of the day.
Sadly our business, the agency, had to close as it couldn’t weather the storm that was the COVID-19 pandemic. I was heart sore but didn’t allow myself to get sucked into the sorrow, and rather took a mental step back and thought about everything I still wanted to do. I knew that, given my responsibilities and position at the agency, I didn’t really want to work in corporate or ride a desk or technically work for anyone else. I wanted to own something and start fresh.
When I made a bookstagram account I got incredibly inspired by the community, there was such an outpouring of love and support and I knew that I’d found a place I could cultivate and grow in. The idea of bookish merch had always fascinated me, but I had no idea the market was quite so extensive.
Once this became clear to me, I immediately started funneling ideas into the brain child and Honeyed Tea creations was born.
I’m so excited to be on the journey with all of you, I hope you see the passion and love dedicated to each individual item in this store and that you enjoy yourself. If this past year has taught me anything, it’s to value what you do and to spread love wherever you go. Have fun exploring!
