I love tea, and Tea Chai Te is my favorite tea company and tea shop. Their amazing tea blends are out of this world, and their tea houses warm and cozy. Angela and Dom run their family business like a family-- and Tea Chai Te has even been spotted on Portlandia a few times. Check out their award winning teas, and my all-time favorite tea in the whole world.
I interviewed Jessica, the Regional Manager of Tea Chai Te about what she loves about her work, the company, and the holiday season.
Tea Chai Te has donated a beautiful Beehouse teapot and an apothecary gift pack full of herbal teas to the 12 Days of Christmas gift giving. Comment on my Facebook page by midnight on December 5th to receive this gift of "peace, love & tea." Free continental U.S. shipping.
Thank you, Tea Chai for nourishing us with tea and community for the past 10 years!
What do you love about your work?
The best part of Tea Chai Te is being part of a loving and supportive work environment. There's a lot of care that goes into our tea blends and our tea tenders are there to find the right tea for you.
What is your favorite Tea Chai Te gift for the holidays?
Our gift packs are a great way to introduce your loved ones, or yourself, to a variety of teas at once. The holidays are also a great time to stock up on our holiday blends, like our Gingerbread Chai!
If you're in Portland, stop by the tea shop on
NW 23rd or the Sellwood Caboose Tea Shop for a yummy holiday tea.
What's your family's favorite holiday tradition?
Nothing beats a fresh cut tree for the holiday! Every Black Friday we skip the shopping and head out to Sauvie Island for hot cocoa and running around the tree grove in search of the perfect pine!
Merry Christmas from Jessica, Angela, Dom, and the Tea Chai Te family!

Hi friends, I write from the heart to tell my life story, and the story of those in my neighborhood called life. Research shows that our children's emotional & mental health is contingent upon us parents being able to tell our life story, or "coherent narrative." This is my coherent narrative, my life story in the making, with some of what I love in life too. My goal is to share my life in a way that is real, uplifting & positive- sometimes serious, sometimes fun. In my practice, I inspire parents to empowerment through reclaiming our life stories and learning respectful discipline. My work is my offering to our children- our future. Wishing you all a happy family!
