I began studying tea in 1998 when I was in school for Chinese medicine and massage. When meeting with clients prior to sessions, I would frequently brew and serve tea. Clients began asking about purchasing tea from me and the tea biz was born.
MandalaTea was born out of Mandala Center for Wellness in 2005. My partner, Sara, and I continue to combine our passion for health with our love for tea and China.
We enjoy traveling to China and love to source the teas for our private label pu’er pressings. Exciting times.

I love to run, I love to workout, I love yoga and I love this planet.
