Charlotte lounge serves tea, cocktails and financial literacy


Tax season is here, and one husband and wife duo is using the lounge and bar experience to help Charlotte’s Black community with their finances.

Tysheba Morgan and Hassan Jones are the owners of Taxes n’ Tea Lounge, a social space where people can enjoy herbal tea, mixed drinks and other beverages as they get their taxes prepared.

The lounge, located on 9620 University City Blvd (Unit A), was created with the intention of increasing financial literacy within the Black community.

“It’s about bringing more awareness and educating Black people about finances and how to manage their money,” Jones told QCity Metro.

Morgan, a Cleveland, OH native, has worked in tax preparation for over 10 years; she owned two tax service businesses in her hometown. 

When Morgan moved to Charlotte in 2015, she continued helping people with their taxes on the side. Later, in 2017, she met her now husband.
