Jolene Brewster began blending and selling tea in 2005 - fueled by her uncompromising quest to deliver blends rich in flavour, high in quality with benefits to gut and mindful health. Growing up on a farm in rural Alberta, the tradition of tea was a wonderful memory from Jolene’s childhood. Whenever visitors would stop by, her mother would always put the kettle on, retrieve her beautiful tea cups, and gather together tea and conversation. This simple ceremony was a great pleasure of Jolene’s that sparked a life-long love of tea. Ecology and nature is also an important part of Jolene’s life and core values of the company. Her degree in Land Resource Management is top of mind in developing products healthful for both people and the planet. Her entrepreneurial spirit is dedicated to a deep-rooted health and happiness. Outside the tea house, Jolene is an avid equestrian (her Stampede Queen saddle is proudly displayed in the tea house), an outdoor adventurer, and a mother.
