Hi, I'm Gus.
Welcome to Rivers & Lakes Tea.
I love sharing remarkable teas made by talented people with the stories and conditions that led to their creation as intact as possible. Inspired by the role the tea table holds in eastern societies, I hope our teas complement a sense of community. Occupied by the dance between simplicity and nuance needed to brew the fine cup, I also hope these teas incite presence through intuition and experimentation as you brew them if you're having tea just with yourself. You may know me through my work at Dobrá Tea in North Carolina
, at Visionary Magnets
, or through my interests as a lifelong musician, photographer, and wannabe botanist.
Let's have tea soon.
