Wow, I can't believe it's been a year since the official launch of Bundts & Crumpets Specialty Tea. On this day, one year ago, we held our first official tea tasting at an event held for Bay Area entrepreneurs to showcase our unique goods and services. We had three teas on hand, Creamsicle Black Tea, Lemon Chiffon White Tea, and Island Nights Fruit Tisane to sample and share and the feedback we received was exciting because it was nothing like what people had experienced before or expected to experience with tea.
I knew absolutely nothing about the tea industry, so I thought the idea from conception to realization might be challenging but I am always down for a challenge. Looking back on this journey I felt like I was in the right place at the right time and everything just fell into place. I met the right people who have guided me through this process with their wisdom and love for the amber liquor that brews from the delicate leaves we all loved so much. This journey hasn't been easy, especially since I was still in law school during this time, but it's been enjoyable and my enthusiasm hasn't died. In fact, I'm so excited for what's to come I can hardly contain myself or study for the bar for that matter. I enjoy sharing my passion with others and seeing the joy on people's faces as they sip their way through our large selection of teas and tisanes that we offer.
This tea venture has also restored my love for baking. With the start of Bundts & Crumpets I decided I needed to bring my delicious sweet treats back into the mix, so with the launch of Bundts & Crumpets I relaunched my bakery as well. It was time for me to get back to doing the things that made me happy and being in the kitchen, whipping up baked treats was something I feel I was destined to do.
As we gear up for the second chapter in what I hope to be a long journey, I want to say thank you to all of you who have helped make Bundts & Crumpets Specialty Tea's first year a success. I am blessed to be surrounded by a supportive group of family and friends and am thankful for the tea friends that I have made during the year. Sharing a cup of tea has proven beneficial in getting to know people and I hope to share many more. Happy Anniversary Bundts & Crumpets!!!
