A Message from Founder Rushell Gordon
As a Panama native, I grew up drinking tea. Before we went off to school, we were offered a hot beverage. Whether that beverage was malted Ovaltine, Milo, hot chocolate (widely referred to as cocoa), bush tea, or bagged Lipton tea, it was all referred to as “tea.”
Many people grew bush teas in their backyards. Today, I’m continuing the tradition by growing fresh herbs in my home garden. Over the years I’ve learned so much about fine teas and the exquisite experience that can be created around tea.
When it comes to tea, Americans miss out on a core experience that so many cultures around the world have enjoyed for decades.
As I walked through the cobblestone streets of Sydney, Australia, I was overwhelmed by the beautiful cafes with immaculately decorated desserts. I admired the people relaxing and enjoying their tea, treats, and conversation.
In Europe, I was in awe at the way the people would spend endless hours chatting and enjoying a decadent cup of tea and light refreshments. Historically, high tea provided the opportunity to enjoy a snack before a late dinner. Today, it’s simply a beautiful reason to relax.
In Asia, tea is both the introduction and the conclusion to every meal. The healing nature of tea is celebrated as part of many cultures. After trying Thai iced tea in Thailand and green tea in Japan and China, I fell in love with the traditions.
I am looking forward to seeing you soon and serving you a delightful cup of tea and treats.
