Yoot teas are carefully crafted from ancient, traditional recipes used for generations in family kitchens to promote and allow deep healing, vitality and joyful surrender to nature’s wisdom.

Our Roots

Founder Nansee Kim-Parker taps into her heritage for every brew. Her parents prepared homemade teas for her chronic gastrointestinal problems when she was a child. As an adult, Nansee consulted family recipes to support her husband’s health after he lost his spleen in a motorcycle accident. 

After the birth of their first child, Nansee crafted her own teas to stay alert without copious amounts of caffeine and sugar.  Being mindful of the ingredients that would pass onto her newborn, she formulated the herbal teas using common food ingredients.

Over time she reformulated her mother’s recipes to cater to her own tastes and subsequently created fusion herbal teas made with organic ingredients sourced for their time-tested healing properties. 

After successfully launching a new motorcycle repair business with her husband (who is feeling much better thanks to her teas!), Nansee is passionately brewing natural, healing teas full time. 

She did as many empowered women do when they have something extraordinary and truly beautiful to share with the world: she quit her job as an engineer and founded Denovo Beverage in 2012. 

Our View

We strive for daily balance. We use herbal roots to maximize and boost our bodies natural ability to aid in daily detoxification. Our bodies are designed to detox naturally, but when toxins start to build up, it can be difficult to keep up. This can lead to an overall run-down feeling, due to the extra work our bodies perform during nighttime when our restorative processes start. Enjoy our grab-n-go, herbal teas for a gentle daily detox for optimal health and wellness.

We believe disease can occur from imbalances in any of these areas. Our food (and thus our herbal tea) is medicine for the mind, body and soul.

Our Responsibility

Our holistic approach to wellness includes the health of our community and our planet. Therefore we like to give back and pay it forward.

We contribute one percent of our profits to TeenForce, a self-sustaining non-profit organization that helps foster teens (ages 14-20) gain work experience in the San Francisco Bay Area.  

As we grow, we intend to hire teens through TeenForce. We agree that when teens become healthy, caring, and responsible young adults who have important roles in the community, the roots of the community become stronger.  

As we expand we will also contribute to similar non-profit organizations that work with empowering youth across America.
