Small business owner, mental health advocate
Taylor Lindsay-Noel is a 27-year-old small business owner who counts Oprah Winfrey among her many customers. The Cup of Té founder is very proud to run a women-led, Black-owned company that incorporates her mom’s Caribbean tradition of drinking tea while socializing. Cup of Té started in 2018, 10 years after Lindsay-Noel, who was an aspiring gymnast at the time, suffered an accident and became paralyzed. Within a year or two of starting the company, Lindsay-Noel was contacted by Oprah, who asked permission to include Cup of Té on her highly coveted “Oprah’s Favorite Things” list. A portion of Cup of Té’s proceeds goes toward mental health awareness causes.
