Karen

I have 19 years of experience in the tea industry I'm excited to share with you. I've attended the World Tea Expo for years and taken tea education classes from the experts. Here in Santa Fe, I've taught numerous classes for local community organizations including the Santa Fe Botanical Garden, historic churches, and professional organizations. I started small at the farmers market and now have a shop near the historic plaza. My teas are served in restaurants across town and my store is a local staple for luxury loose leaf tea. I've lived in and been a business owner here in Santa Fe for 12 years and am happy to share about contemporary tea culture as the primary local tea merchant in this vibrant historic town.

Where you'll be

The tea class takes place in a little store north of the historic Santa Fe plaza, our brightly lit space is a perfect location to experience tea and rest from the hot desert sunshine or else shelter from the summer rains.
