I am a certified Tea Sommelier, world traveler and East Asia specialist who spent almost a decade living in Korea and China. I love pure, traditionally crafted single origin tea, which to me is like travel in a cup – either to a distant land, or deeper within. As a recent transplant to South Dakota, I am excited to launch my new business – Shall We Tea – and offer tea education, tea tastings and tea meditation to a growing community of tea lovers in Sioux Falls!
