— SAIN Kava + Tea Bar is one the newest business to open in the Uptown District. Located at 100 E 5th St., the SAIN Kava + Tea Bar motto is to "take care," which follows the belief that one does not have to wait until there is a problem to take care of their body. The tea bar is open Monday to Saturday from 11am–7pm.
Business owners Michael Wallace and Jermaine Harrison are introducing Kava, a SAIN specialty, to Greenville. Kava is an herbal remedy that is made from the roots of Piper Methysticum, a type of plant found in the islands of the Pacific Ocean. Kava has many remedies such as relieving pain, preventing seizures, relaxing muscles, and helping anxiety. SAIN offers a variety of herbal teas as well. All of their teas are hand-blended with herbs that have homeopathic remedies, and a wide range of caffeinated or decaffeinated teas.
SAIN was not the intended name for this business. Wallace explained how his family name is St. Clair and as he was typing out the name, he hit proceeded to the next step after only typing SAIN. When he researched the meaning of SAIN, he saw that the French translation meant health and knew it was the perfect fit.
Moving into the Uptown District was ideal for SAIN. "It puts us in a place where we can add an alternative space to the Uptown area,"
said Wallace. The inside of SAIN Kava + Tea Bar features artwork from local artists and a unique atmosphere to socialize with friends or for an intimate gathering.
