Joyful Tea is your source for very fine loose-leaf teas and excellent brewing accessories. Owned by Terry and Karen Hathaway, JoyfulTea is a natural outcome of Terry’s 34-year passion for tea and his years of study with the Specialty Tea Institute (a division of the Tea Association of the USA) – he is a Certified Tea Specialist.
The store carries approximately 100 different teas – from the most robust Pu’erh through Blacks, Oolongs, Greens and Whites. In addition a great selection of Tisanes (non-caffeinated herbals) will be available. You’ll want to explore the interesting selection of brewing accessories, tea-related gifts and specialty items. You can request a sample of any tea in the store, as well as, purchase cups of tea, chai and iced teas. Since both Terry and Karen love to bake, scones and cookies are available on special order, and a terrific “tea and toast” can be enjoyed at small tables in the store. Tea exploratory/education sessions will be scheduled in the Market Community Room. These sessions will include tastings and cuppings — providing an opportunity to try a range of teas and learn how to brew a perfect cup of tea.
