SPRING IS HERE!

Can you feel it? Painted Lady butterflies are migrating, California poppies are super blooming, nature’s internal clock is changing, daylight is saving….! However, I’m not ready to make the jump from hot to iced tea yet. The exciting Spring feeling is welling up in me , so I decided to set a few pastel-inspired tea tables to share.

We will be camping in Anza Borrego in a couple weeks. I can’t wait to share how I tea outdoors - there’s nothing like sipping an amazing cup of tea while taking in fresh skies, greenery, and clean, organic solitude. Later in April we’ve got a Peruvian adventure planned that includes a medicinal and herbal hike. I definitely see a cup of maté de coca in my future (which Is banned from the states for it’s minuscule cocaine content). I am so excited to learn about indigenous remedies. The kids have native Andean blood running through their veins, so we will be literally and figuratively getting back to our roots. What do you have planned this Spring?

Be cool and Tea with Me this Saturday at Poler

Summer is unofficially here!  Come by this weekend for some vegan matcha latte, and LemonTox tea!  9 hand-picked vendors and Jadetiger Tea will take over old Laguna Nursery's Atrium at Poler 1360 S. Coast Hwy. 2 pm: LIVE {TEA OUTDOORS} demo with a high grade oolong from April's Taiwan trek. Now that I'm officially out of the corporate world and working more in the creative realm, all I want to do is be around other creators and makers.  I am thirsty to seek out positive, forward-rolling energy.  One outlet for expressing this vibe is by organizing maker's events.  My first event last holiday, Shop + Nibble at Five Crowns was hugely successful and more than anything, I enjoyed meeting the vendors and making productive connections.  I wanted to build on that - but take a more salt of the earth approach with a outdoorsy, summer, camp vibe theme.

This Saturday, you can sample honey comb from a LIVE bee hive, find upcycled wood work, soy candles, mini-cactus gardens, original macrame work... and of course since it's my event, there will be mini-donuts, glow make overs, cool jewelry, pressed juices, all in a beautiful space, with lost of GOOD VIBES!

Rosie the Riveter Sips Tea on International Women's Day!

I'm so glad to be a Woman entrepreneur.  15-years ago I left the corporate world to start my own business in real estate & I have no regrets.  My brokerage thrived & I worked my tail off... However, a cancer diagnosis a few years ago made me re-think my career path & stress level... So while Momming, Wifing, Friending, Working, & Volunteering {in that order, LOL} - I slowly started building a tea brand - pouring all my creative might & love into this life project.  If I weren't a Woman, I feel like wouldn't be as detailed, thoughtful, and inclusive as I could be.  Cheers to International Women's Day, and a BIG shout to to being proud to be American to have the freedom and privilege to make these free decisions.
