About Tea•rrific! Ice Cream

After a long love affair with ice cream, founder Mario Leite began searching for an ice cream that used the highest quality ingredients while offering uniquely distinct flavor. After being let go from his investment banking job in 2011, he decided to put inspiration into action and began experimenting in the kitchen by infusing fresh-brewed loose leaf teas into his ice cream. Tea•rrific! Ice Cream became a product of a wild idea and a passionately sweet desire for fine ice cream. The company’s numerous awards & accomplishments include Best New Product at the World Tea Expo East in 2012, Martha Stewart American Made Finalist in 2014, Sofi Award Finalist at the 2015 Summer Fancy Food Show, Yankee Magazine Editor’s Pick Food Awards Winner in 2015, and Connecticut Specialty Food Awards Winner in 2016.
