Let’s go!  This deposit gets your project in the queue to talk to us quickly. It will apply to consulting to start your custom formulating, or co-packing quotes. Out of hundreds of inquiries per day in this new market the deposit gets you in the queue.

These fees are for Custom Formulation / Blend Development for recipes readied for Manufacturing. The total development cost will depend on the scope and complexity of your ingredients and total project. This includes blend matching of your existing recipe or reverse engineering of a blend you need matched.


Let’s Build a Blend:

  1. Please add the deposit to your cart and checkout
  2. We will email you a Project Form and Job Agreement
  3. Send in your sample to be matched if applicable 
  4. We will be in touch within 1-2 business days to discuss your custom blend or consulting needs in detail or you can set up a call here (choose 15 minutes, or 30-60 minutes if you are just looking to use this to pay for consulting on your project only) 

We are all about long-term business relationships. We build your formulation and sourcing to scale and grow with your brand. If the project doesn’t work out, and no work has been done, and we discover we are not a fit then it is refundable (minus a 15% administration fee if applicable). We can determine this is on a 15-minute call.

General Formulation Processes:

  •       Determine the scope of blend work (ingredients, function, formats, flavor profile, need, etc.)
  •       Invoice is sent to you for payment for development (or pay a deposit here to get in the queue and started right away)
  •       Fill out Project Form 
  •       Ingredients are sourced (if not stocked)
  •       Samples received
  •       Blends developed
  •       1-4 oz sample sent to you for approval
  •       1 round of adjustments included, with an additional 1-4 oz sample
  •       Additional rounds/revisions $150 per round
  •       Once approved you own the formulation and we will then work to get a manufactured cost for the blend and packaging if needed (1-3 quotes can be provided)
  •       Bulk Tea MOQ is 25 lbs to 200lbs per blend depending on ingredients and scope
  •       We then manufacture at the best facility for your project and supervise the process of the first blend to ensure there are no issues with the first production run (depending on your certification needs, budget, or which side of the country is best)

Note: Sample shipping will be billed additionally. If you do not have a UPS / Fedex account for us to use it will be sent USPS and billed to you.

We offer a 15-minute free consult to get started. 

We also offer Kcup, Powders, and Stick Packs formulations.
