Joy's Jabberings

Why I Almost Closed Joy's Teaspoon

In July 2017, I announced to family and close friends that I was closing Joy's Teaspoon. It was going to take me a few months to liquidate and sell off inventory, close down the website, file paperwork...you get the picture. I mean, I absolutely love tea. I love the flavor, the nuances, the story behind each batch, and the people and cultures behind those stories. But running a tea business (or any business for that matter) is not hearts and rainbows all the time and I was getting burned out. I was tired of marketing, I was tired of fighting...

2017 SW Tea Fest

I am on a tea mission! It started back in 2012 when I launched the Las Vegas Tea Festival. It was a small locals festival that boasted 13 exhibitors and a little over 300 attendees. It was an opportunity for local Las Vegans to get out there and learn about tea and all its offerings. In my mind, it was hugely successful because attendees and exhibitors alike were talking tea in Vegas for 8 solid hours and hopefully long after.  Fast forward a few years...in 2016, I teamed up with Elyse Petersen from Tealet to host the SW Tea Fest.

SW Tea Fest Recap

#D3FM #swtf2016 downtown 3rd farmers market sw tea fest

I'm sure my friends and family are tired of hearing about the SW Tea Fest by now but I'm going to pretend I can't see the eyerolls and hear the sighs. Joy's Teaspoon was a Darjeeling sponsor of the event and owner, Naomi Rosen, is a co-founder of the festival.  It was an incredible success and we've got video proof! We ended the day with about 600 people drinking tea, listening to incredible local and Grammy nominated musicians, and just an incredible vibe in the Downtown 3rd Farmers Market building.  Thank you to all of the exhibitors and sponsors for supporting...
