The Founder

Judy Duncan is passionate about tea enjoying the history and traditions that binds tea and culture together.  As a Certified Tea Specialist Judy has discovered and developed a wide variety of tea, tisanes and blends, as well as, acquired an understanding of distinctive tea cultures. These understandings enhance the tea experience as a whole, while enabling the connection of people and culture. This has been a complement to Judy’s graduate work in Intercultural Studies and has further broadened her understanding and acceptance of others.  If you would like to have Judy speak or present a talk on tea and/or culture contact her at judy@ktizotea.com.

The Team

Judy’s husband, Bruce, is a CPA and has been an irreplaceable partner as he offers his financial expertise and overwhelming support for Judy’s vision. Elizabeth Warner has joined the team and has completed her level 1 & 2 Special Tea Institute certification.  She has been valuable to the forward movement of this endeavor and is also very passionate about tea. The team is not complete without mentioning the support and advice of Bruce and Judy's children, Elisabeth, Sara, Hannah, and Andrew.  Thank You Team!!
