What is Tea Bureau?  Tea Bureau is a facility for making connections with consumers and tea industry professionals.  Tea Bureau is an extension of services provided by The Tea House Times publication. Tea Bureau connects consumers and tea businesses to all facets of the tea industry.   Bookmark our site for frequent visits and usage to view updates and keep on top of trends. www.teabureau.com    

When and why was Tea Bureau formed?  Since 2003, The Tea House Times print publication has served mainly those interested in Victorian or English style tea service.  In 2008, Tea Bureau was formed to provide a place for all types of tea businesses to connect and reach out to consumers.  In addition, it is a place for news and articles that might not otherwise fit into our print publication yet are significant and worthy for reading and publication in another form - on the internet.  In today's world people want and need access to both print and online information.  With the addition of Tea Bureau, we can provide both.

Who can use Tea Bureau?  Anyone with access to the internet may access the pages of Tea Bureau to read articles and news, find tea rooms and tea businesses, tea party ideas, recipes, free games, events, tours, speakers and more.  New business owners may use Tea Bureau as a resource for finding associations, training, business advice, trade events, wholesale resources, and much more.

How do I use Tea Bureau?  From the home page of Tea Bureau, information is categorized for easy access - of interest to consumers or of interest to those in the tea trade.  Near the top of the page is a Table of Contents with general information broken out into these two interest groups.  The links within this first Table of Contents will bring you further down the page direct to consumer or trade connections.  A Second Table of Contents, just below the first one, is a list of direct links for information of interest to both consumers and trade.  Click on links or company logos or buttons to access information or visit other business websites.
