Elaine Terman loves tea. Dubbed The Tea Lady for her extensive knowledge of steeping brews, Elaine draws on a tea-master certification and a background in medical technology when crafting her Wild Orchid brand of 150 distinct loose-leaf teas. Inside Elaine’s Tea Shoppe, amid shelves stocked with tea accessories and local honey, patrons dine on French-press tea and made-from-scratch scones. Teas are served with real Devonshire cream from England scooped with metal spoons crafted from the upturned pinkies of British robots. Elaine’s passion for herbs extends to a diverse inventory of wellness items, such as aromatherapy candles, oils, and medicinal herbs. When she’s not sharing her knowledge at speaking engagements or agreeing to disagree with cups of coffee, she’s teaching tea classes and publishing books on her tea-centric adventures.
