FEATURED ARTISAN: Teakoe Tea
As our Spring Market approaches, we are so excited to welcome 100+ new and returning Fireflies. One of our amazing artisans to join us again is the incredible Teakoe Tea!
Founder, Pete Jokisch, has always had a thirst for creativity. Having been introduced to tea while in college, Pete was enthralled with the complexity of the almighty tea leaf. Using tea as a catalyst to boost his immune system while playing lacrosse in college and then on a professional level, Pete knew his future would revolve around creating a different type of tea experience for others to enjoy. Living in Colorado and surrounded by so many microbreweries, he naturally took note of their passion for the craft and applied similar techniques to his tea blends. Pete’s mission is to elevate the tea experience by crafting flavorful infusions using all natural ingredients, including real fruits, herbs and spices for consumers to brew up and enjoy at home!
Pete explains, “Our motivation at Teakoe is simple. It’s about our PASSION for the craft, being American-Made and creating goods for others to enjoy. It’s about PRIDE in what we do each and every day, from sleepless nights, to the daily grind and all the crazy ideas along the way. It’s about pursuing a greater PURPOSE - to leave this place better then when we arrived. Our obsession is tea and we believe it’s the best tasting tea you’ll ever experience. We hope you enjoy drinking Teakoe as much as we love creating it. Cheers!”
Stop by Twenty Ninth Street from 10am-4pm on May 2 and 3 to see what incredible goods Teakoe and our other artisans have to offer!
