For the last 7 years Taylor has dedicated his life to sharing amazing tea with people. His journey has taken him across the sea to foreign lands, where bi-annually he hunts for exceptional teas in the backcountry of Asia. This has lead him to work extensively with great partners in the Cafe, Restaurant, Kombucha and Beer industries. Most importantly tea introduced him to extraordinary people, beautiful places and opened doors he could have never imaged. Taylor’s love is to make tea the best part of your day. He sees it as a powerful opportunity to appreciate something beautiful with friends and take care of the planet.
Taylor’s favorite thing to pair with tea is good company and dope beats.
