MEET OUR FOUNDER
Growing up, Sunday afternoons following church were a sweet time of family and friends gathering at my Grandparent’s House for a special supper prepared by my Grandma. It was a regular occurrence to have a completely full table and to set up another table in the kitchen for more guests! After all the dishes had been cleaned up, my Grandma and I would often have tea together in the kitchen. It was a special time of conversation and sharing. It was a special time of conversation and sharing. Part of this special time together included picking out teacups from the towering china hutch for us to sip from. Her beautiful teacups were passed down from her Mother, my Great Grandma who we lovingly called Grandma A. While my Great Grandparent’s didn’t travel much, whenever they did my Great Grandma A would purchase a teacup and write the destination on the back of the saucer. Picking out teacups for our tea party was a weekly highlight, that cultivated a love of hospitality, tea and dreams of travel.
MY PERFECT CUP: Our Signature Joy Blend, of black, green and white tea. For a fancy cup, I’ll place a slice of freshly picked Meyer Lemon from my backyard in it, or a swizzle of honey harvested from my sweet bees.
A cherished legacy from my Great Grandma A:
a teacup and saucer from her travels to Hudson Bay, BC in 1954
