Thank you so much for visiting Tea &
Trumpets’ website and taking some time to read about our history. I’m Mark, the
creator of Tea and Trumpets, and I wanted to give you a brief background on our
venture. After spending a few years in
the pharmaceutical industry, I realized something was missing from my work.
While the industry treated me well, I wanted to create my own business that
would in some way, add to people’s lives. One of the things I thoroughly enjoy about my
day is drinking tea. For me, there is something irreplaceably soothing about a
cup of tea. I also found the health and medicinal uses of tea intriguing. As I
searched for loose leaf tea in Santa Rosa, I found that my options were
limited. I craved the interactive tea
selection experience in choosing tea. I decided
I wanted to create a tea business that had a quality selection, provided
excellent customer service, and most of all, was welcoming not intimidating. I
believe that the experience of choosing loose leaf tea should be fun and
interactive. You don’t need to be an expert to find a tea that is right for
you; just start smelling some tea and asking questions. We offer only 100% USDA organic tea because
we believe tea should be in its purest form; without the use of chemicals.
Funny name… Tea & Trumpets?
I first started drinking tea with my mom
around five years old. One day she told me that in England they like tea and
crumpets so much that many people there would have them everyday. I really liked tea too so I told her, “mom…
lets have tea and trumpets everyday like they do in England!”
