One of our amazing clients, Jeni Dodd, is a Tea Specialist. She first discovered our brand after the World Tea Expo – she happened to stop in our showroom on Abbot Kinney in Venice. She was mesmerized by the stones and describes wearing her Todd Reed jewelry to finding a great cup of tea.
Jeni was in our Boulder showroom this week to share some of her knowledge.
