Meet the Founders
A curator of specialty tea and tea experience, Claudia enjoys bringing people together through tea appreciation, education and practices. A certified THAC Tea Sommelier and Chinese Tea Master with TCI, you will find her brewing traditional Gongfucha one day, while creating tea mixology and pairing on another.
As a devoted Urasenke student and chado practitioner, Janice (Jan) finds solace in the art of the Japanese tea ceremony. Her personal tea journey had led her further down the path of Japanese loose-leaf teas where she discovered Senchado, a hidden gem in the world of Japanese tea culture. She will be honing her knowledge of Japanese tea and culture at the Certified Japanese Tea Master Course in Kyoto, Japan this October.
Committed to making tea an immersive experience, Jan loves bridging tradition and innovation. From traditional tea tastings to modern mixology, she strives to share the joys of tea and its rich culture, inspiring your senses on a unique tea journey.
