Maria is a marine biologist by training and worked as a research scientist for a number of years before finding her way to tea. Seventeen years ago, Maria and her husband decided to change their lives in a way that would allow them to spend more time with each other and spend more time at home. That’s how Tea and Chi started. They import, blend and flavor over 200 teas for their store in Vero Beach. They also custom blend for both retail customers and wholesale accounts, which include restaurants, cafes, bed and breakfasts, spas, hotels and more. Two years ago, Maria and her husband partnered with some friends on the west coast to start a second tea company, based in White Salmon, Washington. Maria is very passionate about tea and all its aspects and is often invited to do workshops, tea ceremonies and presentations. She looks forward to sharing tea with you, at the beautiful McKee Botanical Garden.
