Chris Baldwin

Hi, I’m Chris Baldwin, Co-Founder of Valhalla Tea Company.

I served in the U.S. military for 10 years. After four years as an E-5 in the U.S. Army, I got out and found myself with a host of problems: high blood pressure, anxiety, panic disorder, and PTSD-related issues that were getting worse. Just prior to this time, a good friend of mine (and fellow soldier) took his own life, and I was finding myself at the bottom of a bottle more often than not.

After a minor health scare, my doctor told me I needed to really start living a healthier lifestyle and give up the alcohol. I started reading and researching how to adopt a healthier lifestyle and found that there are a ton of health benefits from drinking tea.

Over the course of last year, I started replacing whiskey with tea and got super into it. Then, January 2021 rolled around, and the opportunity presented itself here with a supplier to really make this brand happen. I threw together a quick label to get it into some vape shops locally in Vancouver, WA, but then had a bigger vision to create a tea brand that could really make an impact.

In February 2021, I merged my newfound love for tea with my passion of helping soldiers (once an NCO, always an NCO) and the Valhalla Tea Co. was born. Today, we operate to create delicious and health-beneficial tea blends that not only taste great but help military veterans postmilitary service with $1 of every bag we sell going to reintegration programs across the U.S. You’ll see that I'm not only financially invested in this business, but mentally and emotionally, too.


If this company can help fund missions across the U.S. to help even one veteran make the transition from substance abuse to a healthier way of life and not choose suicide, it will be successful to me.
