Our day begins with a list of teas to compose…a combination of retail and wholesale orders that just came in. We have over 300 recipes that our founder, Joy Wujek, has developed, inspired by desserts, ingredients, tea traditions and customer/staff suggestions.
Petali Teas is handcrafted- no machines are used to produce the tea blends- The style is artisan, using full leaves, fruits, nuts, barks, roots, flower petals, yerba mate, rooibos and a myriad of tea shapes, sizes and varieties. Our flavorings and essences are the best quality available so each cup is a delicious experience.
Joy has been on a lifelong journey learning about plants and tea customs. She loves hiking through forest, fields, deserts and learning about biomes and symbiotic relationships in nature.
Her gardens burst with flowers and herbs and delights in the help that she gets from her chickens who keep weeds and pests under control.
Petali Teas is an evolving company, changing with the shifts in palate trends and new designs in tea accessories and other products. Our retail shop is an expression of the artisan and craftsman. From apiaries to potters, we celebrate people and their creations.
We look for vendors, planters and growers who care about the environment and give back to the communities that they are a part of. Those companies who embrace diversity, fairness, integrity and understand the importance of stewardship of nature and human resources. We only have one Earth. It is paramount that we always make respectful decisions.
Thank you for visiting our site we are looking forward to you becoming a part of our community.
Want to know more? Take a look at this video that was featured on a regional program- Broad and High- and hear more of our story. Although we have evolved somewhat since the filming (for example, we merged our two shops into one supershop) we still think it showcases many of the interesting tidbits that have made us what we are today! Enjoy!
