Sum’Mo Tea & Things on Savannah Ave. brings an authentic local business to the Statesboro community inspired by the nourishing effects of tea and what it can do for the body.

“I know there are a lot of tea lovers in the community, but we can only go to places like Walmart to get it. There aren’t many options”, said co-owner Alivia Lloyd. “I felt there was a need in the community for something different, something more authentic.” Sum’Mo offers herbal teas and remedies, as well as tea-lattes which is a marque product of their business.

Sum’Mo originally opened on South Main Street in November 2020, however due to the growth of their business and the expansion of their product, they moved to their current location on Savannah Ave in January 2021. Students at Georgia Southern had an opportunity to discover Sum’Mo tea at a pop up near the rotunda at Russel Union on Friday, August 20th. According to Alivia, they were able to attract many students and show off their product, “A lot of them were surprised that tea could taste so good”. Since then, they hosted a tasting at The United Way, and they plan to host other events and opportunities within the Statesboro community.

More information on their upcoming events can be found on their Facebook page and their website. Be sure to stop by and check them out at 372 Savannah Ave., Statesboro Ga, 30458.
