When you enter Steve's Tea Company, you may be greeted by one of four generations of a wonderful family, and you'll feel like family. Wendy, Steve's mother, who is 91, is witty and has a wealth of tea knowledge and a passion for the finer things. Steve would be happy to help you find the exact artisan blend you're looking for, many of which he lovingly curates in-house. Lana will charismatically assist with any Loose Leaf brewing questions you may have (or any brewing tools you may need) and she is imparting this expertise on her three lovely children. Visit Steve's Tea Company for more than tea, but an entire experience.
