Margie "Granny" McGriff
Meet Ms. Margie, affectionately known as "Granny," a vibrant 91-year-young retired school teacher from the Polk County School Board with an impressive 25 years of dedicated service. Even in her golden years, Granny actively tends to her garden and savors the simple joys of sipping sweet tea. After more than two decades of perfecting her secret sweet tea recipe, Ventura, her determined grandson, convinced her to share it in 2022, giving rise to Granny Mac's DOONK'S brand. Boasting its inaugural flavors, Mango/Cranberry and Strawberry/Pineapple, these teas are a testament to Granny's original recipe and the unparalleled ingredient she infuses into each batch: love. Prepare your taste buds for a unique tea experience – one that transcends flavor and is crafted with genuine affection.
