I've been tasting and mixing Tea and Tisanes for over 7 years, and have had a lifelong interest in the healing power of the therapeutic plants. I am co-founder of Seattle's most intriguing tea shop. We provide tea for many of the largest and most discerning cafes and restaurants in our fine city. I've been lecturing and providing training and education for enthusiasts and professionals alike. I believe everyone should enjoy tea as much as I, and love helping people discover our connection to the plant kingdom.

An absolutely amazing experience!! I did not expect to have such a great time, our hour and a half went by in what felt like no time at all. Due to Covid mandates of no indoor seating, Will set up unbelievably cute seating area in front of his shop for us which was heated and perfect in every way. He did an amazing job with everything Covid related and had his shop decorated beautifully in Christmas decor. Overall, he is an amazing down to earth guy and a real treat to meet and thanks to him, he turned me into a tea drinker. 11/10 recommend this to anyone!!

This was a super thoughtful experience! I knew a little about tea going in, and Will helped me find new teas, and talked through how to make some more at home. He met us at our comfort level, and tailored it to us.

The tea tasting with Will was great! He really catered the experience to our party's tastes and let our questions guide the tasting. In doing so Will was really able to demonstrate his vast knowledge of the subject. Overall, I would recommend this experience to absolutely anyone, whether they are tea drinkers or not. Ultimately, you will end up leaving with a greater appreciation for tea and its history. Also, huge bonus points for Will as he was very respectful in asking our party if we were comfortable with the COVID precautions taken before beginning the tasting.

Will was my favorite part of my visit to Seattle, topping even Chihuly. His storytelling and magical shop drew me and my husband into the arcane and mysterious world of tea, and rewarded us with a wonderful evening full of far-flung potions aka cups of delicious tea, complimented by tales from the distant past and current day. Go! You’ll have a fantastic time, even if you’re a secret coffee lover like me.

Will is a fabulous ambassador for teas. I took my boyfriend on this experience to introduce him the the broader world of tea and we had a great time. The tea shop is adorable and Will brews any tea in the shop that you want to try.
