K’Tizo Tea loves culture.
We love the stories that drive culture. And we love the experiences we’ve had with culture.
This is one of the reasons why we love tea as much as we do. Each cup comes with a unique story. And each leaf has flavor shaped by its location in the world – the traditions, cuisine, climate, and surroundings.
We also love what happens when people gather together and share their favorite teas. We believe that something mysterious and beautiful can happen when people choose to open up their lives and talk about the experiences that have shaped them into who they are today.
I am thrilled to announce that we will be regularly sharing stories, experiences, lessons, and memories from all around the world. They may be our stories, or they may be from a fellow tea drinker. Our hope is that in the process, you will discover new things and remember how beautiful and special our world is through the people, traditions, and experiences you read about here.
My own love for travel and culture is planted deep in my roots. While I have spent my entire life in a woodsy home in central Illinois, I have always had an itch to see the world. My parents met in the Philippines in the third grade and a great deal of my extended family spends most of their days abroad. So you could say it has always been in my blood.
I took my first international trip at sixteen and it’s safe to say that I haven’t really stopped traveling since. Through my travels, I have simultaneously seen beauty and heartbreak; wealth and poverty; chaos and peace. The people I have met, the places I have seen, and the things I have had the privilege to be a part of have changed me deeply.
So come, and adventure with us…
