After seven years Zen Tara Tea has closed its doors as of March 31, 2014. The website, and in principle Zen Tara Tea, are closing so that Guy and Methee can pursue other opportunities that have come to them in working with projects in Thailand and potentially in other tea growing countries. There will be extensive travel beginning the end of April to begin some of the work and the amount of time we will be spending outside the country makes maintaining Zen Tara Tea in the U.S. impractical at this time.

While Guy and Methee are moving on to a new chapter, Dominion Tea is about ready to open its virtual doors. Through chance timing and a shared vision for great tea, Dominion Tea expects to start offering many of the great teas you have come to expect from Zen Tara Tea over the years. Beginning in May 2014, Dominion Tea will be offering customers great teas on their website.

Over the next month we would like to encourage you to sign up for the Dominion Tea newsletter to receive 30% off your first order through July 31, 2014. To get a better sense of Dominion Tea prior to launch, please visit the Dominion Tea Blog.
