About Me

So glad you would like to get to know me better! I am an educator, writer, and creator of tea experiences.

My name is Traci Levy and I am infusiastic about all things Camellia sinensis.

I didn’t realize that there was a wide world of tea beyond Lipton until middle school, when someone gave my mother a set of tiny, brightly colored tins full of different kinds of loose-leaf teas. (And, no shade on Lipton. The BEST tea is the tea YOU enjoy.)

Many tea classes, workshops, books, and cups of tea later, I am still in love with tea.

Tea is first and foremost a joy for me. Deepening my mindfulness practice with the companionship of tea is also a beautiful, ongoing journey. I created the Tea Infusiast website to share what I sip, what I learn, and what I love about tea.

I have extensive teaching, workshop design, and facilitator experience through my career in Higher Ed. Additionally, I have completed a fantastic eight month tea teacher training program through Being Tea.

I organize tea events (online and in person) and a offer a monthly newsletter. If you’d like to stay connected and learn about special tea-related events and content, I invite you to subscribe to Tea Infusiast News.

I’m happy to discuss potential event or experience collaborations. I am particularly interested in the ways tea can help us slow us down, experience the fullness of our existence, and connect to each other. Stories are also important to me.

Sometimes, I am able to review tea or tea-related things. I am always transparent when I do reviews of anything I didn’t buy at full price. You can read my review policy here. [Note: I regret I am not able to take on tea reviews with NEW partners.]

If you would like to connect beyond this website and my newsletter, I’m most active on Instagram. You can also find me on Facebook. Direct messaging me @teainfusiast on Instagram is a great way to reach me.

P.S. My pronouns are she/her.
