About Us

Hello fellow tea lover,

Thank you for stopping by to share in and explore my world of tea. 

I’m Freya, business owner, traveler, wife, fur mama, and English transplant living in Seattle.  

Growing up in England, I was powered by hearty black teas with milk, but as the years went on, I realized tea offered so much more. It became a window for reflection, an opportunity to be present and it whisked me away on a full sensory journey.   

How did I get into the tea business, you ask?  Well, when my hubby and I tied the knot in 2016,  what better way to represent myself than to create customized tea favors for our guests.

I’ve always been a very passionate tea drinker and after our wedding I developed a curiosity about understanding this luscious little leaf a lot more. I began to study tea, its rich history, varietals, processing methods and more, and in 2020, I was officially (and very proudly), crowned a certified tea specialist.

Tea is such a social beverage, and you will often find me in my happy place getting together with friends for afternoon tea or grabbing a cuppa and taking a walk, it is the elixir of life.

So, as I continue to beaver away with the business, I do want to take a moment to acknowledge all the folk who have invested their blood, sweat and tea-rs into making this exciting adventure a reality. 

And lastly, thank YOU for stopping by to learn a little more about the girl behind the teacup.

Warm wishes,
