Since creating Tea Market in 2002, it has become so much more than “just a tea shop”. Tea Market is a hub for my extended tribe and like-minded and curious friends to gather and exchange information and ideas, tips and successes on how to stay well, thrive and flourish naturally.
With over 100 whole leaf loose teas to choose from, we are sure to find YOUR perfect “cup of tea”, if not, we’ll custom blend something just for you. Just let us know what you need; energizing teas, calming and relaxing or the best teas for optimal wellness, we’ve got you covered. Through the years we’ve added more and more organic options, more approachable retail tea bag products that allow us to introduce people to the world of tea and beautiful tea products to gift this healthy lifestyle to the people you care about.
Not sure how to use loose tea? No problem we have everything you need and are full of helpful advice and willing to ask questions and listen. For some online tutorials check out the “videos” tab. What does your tea life require and what options will work best to make it as simple and easy for you as possible. Want to see a demonstration? Just order a delicious handcrafted drink of your choice from our precision Tea Bar. We will give you a step by step “how-to” and then you get to enjoy the finished product.
The journey into Natural Health has led to also incorporating other forms of plant-based wellness into the shop, like essential oils and natural healing herbs. Everyone at Tea Market is passionately striving to live a healthy lifestyle, free of medications both prescription and over the counter. This drive in my own life, led me to develop my proprietary line of Functional Wellness Teas and I’m so proud that they have become some of the most popular teas in the shop. Mostly because they work and you can’t get them anywhere but Tea Market. We study nutrition, and every form of plant-based wellness and LOVE sharing what we learn with anyone with a heart to listen.
Because of the freshness and quality of our teas and my unique intuition and palate for blending, many of our teas are featured, sold and served at some of the finest establishments in Kansas City. You’ll find Tea Market teas being offered at fine dining restaurants, health clubs, studios, bakeries, and businesses wanting to offer distinctive and superior quality teas to their customers, employees, patients and clients. It’s been a privilege to be asked to blend for them and to help create their tea menus. I’m so lucky to have found my one true “superpower” in this life and am blessed every time I get the opportunity to use it.
I invite you to visit us at Tea Market. Relax, enjoy a sample of the “tea of the day”, sniff and read labels to your heart's content. Maybe try a tea-to-go from Tea Bar and ask all the questions you want and see all the lovely things we have to offer. I know you can purchase tea a million places, come see what makes Tea Market unique and worth the trip. I hope to see you soon.
Warmly and with gratitude,
