A Tea Tasting Experience with TeaHaus of Ann Arbor
A Tea Tasting Experience with TeaHaus of Ann Arbor
Lisa McDonald
Lisa McDonald, tea sommelier and owner of TeaHaus, will demonstrate how to make a variety of teas with the opportunity to taste. After a “short backpacking trip” through Europe that turned into a 14-year residency and career in Germany and Sweden, Lisa McDonald returned to the US with her husband, Marc Hewko (an Ann Arborite she met in Germany), to start a family.
After a few months, she began to miss the high quality loose tea available in Europe so she, a European-trained tea sommelier, decided to open a tea store of her own in Kerrytown. 
After several years, TeaHaus expanded, opening the ever-popular Tea Room/Café. And then in 2017, sister business Eat More Tea debuted, offering tea-infused gelato,
tea-based spice blends, and much more. Lisa remains one a handful of European trained tea sommeliers in the US.
