Where did the name INA come from? 

INA (ē • nə) denotes the familiar feminine name and comes from the word Regina, meaning “queen”. INA (i • ná) is also the word for "mother" in Tagalog, which is an homage to mother nature and nod to Bernadette’s Filipinx heritage. 

About the Founder + Clinical Herbalist

As a professional starting out in New York City, Bernadette’s gateway to tea opened each morning with a paper cup and tea bag of Earl Grey from the local bodega. Since then she’s turned to tea and herbs not only for the tea parties and delicious blends, but also for their holistic health benefits. 

She's a Clinical Herbalist and has formally studied with Verse School of Herbal Medicine and The Herbal Academy. Bernadette lives in San Francisco with her partner and two young kids with their budding city garden by the ocean.  Inspired by nature and ancient practices, she's humbled to create nourishing blends that can be sipped daily to fit any task of today.
