Amanda Sizemore is the owner at Twin Flame Tea. She founded the company almost two years ago. The idea came to her one afternoon walking through a farmer’s market with her significant other. She was craving an organic iced tea with real herbs. A tea with beautiful hand blended leaves, not the fanning’s you usually find at the grocery store. This craving led to her curiosity of starting what she didn’t know would become an amazing adventure.
