Congrats to Kamilah Mitchell of Teas with Meaning on your “cancer free” announcement and celebration! We’re so glad to have been able to host you at Oakstop’s California Ballroom!

Why would I stop!?… 

Teas With Meaning started because Kamilah was diagnosed with cancer. Being a solopreneur in Oakland while dealing with cancer through tea time has NOT been easy. But 3.5 years later….unstoppable is an understatement. There is more to come🙇🏽‍♀️

Teas With Meaning has and always will emphasize the energy of healing, the message of the importance of tea time and self care, the value of community, the beauty in advocating for yourself,  and honoring your power and purpose. ✨

Yeah, y’all going to KEEP getting these vibes, teas and magic from Teas With Meaning. Like @bigsean said…. “this that cure cancer flow….” and like @kmitchellwrites always says “I gotta tea for that” 🙇🏽‍♀️

★★ reviews ★★

Excellent customer service and answers every call and question! Signing up was easy and quick. I was able to speak to with Shane who did an amazing job of explaining my membership, how to access my mail, etc. THIS is how you operate a business. Definitely a great decision.

Coworking Member

The space is awesome and very unique. It blends the artist performance space and tech startup culture with Oakland’s edginess and beauty.

You get the professionalism and capacity to get high level work done but without the pretentiousness and sterileness of a traditional tech work setting. Cost was also pretty reasonable and probably much cheaper than comparable spaces.

Got to play cello here during one of their art exhibits. Wonderful space they have and outstanding group of people organizing it! I had a blast playing in their space and meeting and talking with the people there.
