Over Two Decades in the Making
Danielle Beaudette, proprietor of The Cozy Tea Cart, has been selling high quality teas for over two decades. During that time she has also researched the history of tea and tea wares. Danielle has a special interest in the history of tea and its ceremonies, and considers herself a student in her quest for knowledge on tea. She is continually doing research on tea in an effort to stay up to date with the current information and trends. As a Specialty Tea Institute member, Danielle receives regular industry reports and has access to a number of the tea industry’s information sources.
Danielle was one of the first 15 individuals in the United States to be certified as a Tea Specialist, in Levels 1-3, through the Specialty Tea Institute, NY. To date she has completed over 70 tea seminars at the World Tea Expo. The invaluable information she has learned in the seminars and from tradesmen provides her with insights on the current trends of the tea industry, knowledge of the latest studies on the health benefits of tea, and a better understanding of how to manage a tea business. She has researched and learned first-hand about the production of tea through her Asian tea travels and relationships with Chinese, Indian, Sri Lankan, Japanese, Nepalese, and Taiwanese tea growers.
Danielle sources only the finest, high quality, freshly imported teas, regularly earning awards for “Best of NH” by NH Magazine, Best of Souhegan Valley, and Best of Greater Nashua. Just as important as the quality of her tea, she promotes excellence in service and makes educating customers about tea a priority.
About The Cozy Tea Cart
The Cozy Tea Cart expanded ten years ago from a small retail tea shop into a more spacious building in a central location in Brookline, NH, that now includes a café. The shop sells high quality teas and tea accoutrements as well as unique specialty gift items. The Café serves breakfast and lunch on a daily basis, Monday through Saturday. All of the menu items are made fresh and the ingredients are sourced from local farms in NH and MA.
One Sunday a month from September through June, The Cozy Tea Cart serves Afternoon Tea in the traditional Victorian manner. These events feature a different themed menu each month.
The Cozy Tea Cart not only provides excellent service, but also helps to educate those with a fondness for tea through lectures, brochures, tea tastings, and one-on-one discussions. We are a proud member of the U.S. Specialty Tea Institute, a division of the Tea Association of the U.S.A. This non-profit organization is dedicated to educating and serving the needs of purveyors in the specialty tea industry. Learn more at www.teausa.com.
