With nearly all his funds gone and unable to perfect the process for making his instant Teas, Jim was about to give up. Fortunately, while casually glancing over the ingredients table for his wife’s face mask as he brushed his teeth, Jim stumbled onto the key to perfecting his process.

With his newfound appreciation for botanical extraction, Jim was able to perfect the process to create instant tea and coffee as well.
