Manager Monday: DAVIDsTEA

We got the tea on Lisa, the manager at DAVIDsTEA! You can usually find Lisa in her store with a smile on her face and samples on hand! Stop by for an extra bit of energy with her uplifting attitude, strong passion for the products and, of course, yummy teas!

TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF

I am the manager at DAVIDsTEA and have been in retail management for over 30 years. I was born and raised in Wisconsin and have lived here my whole life. I live in an old farmhouse on a little farm with my husband, my 13 year-old daughter, Emma, and our two cats, Joey and Chandler named after Friends.

WHAT WOULD THE PERFECT WEEKEND LOOK LIKE FOR YOU

The perfect weekend for me would include a little break from work and getting in the car and just driving to a park for a nice walk.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO ORDER AT ONE OF THE RESTAURANTS AT THE CORNERS

I love Goddess and the Baker’s Breakfast Burrito!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE STORE AT THE CORNERS?

Sendik’s because it is so easy to grab food on my way home from work!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ACTIVITY?

I am big into yoga and have been since 2002.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE part of working at davids tea?

My favorite thing is being able to talk to the customers! We have over 150 types of tea so I love when a new customer comes in and I can ask them some preliminary questions to help them find a blend that fits their lifestyle. It is such a nice casual environment where I get to hand out samples and talk to all the guests!

WHAT IS one thing your store sells that you can’t live without?

Our Coffee Pu’erh because I am a big coffee lover. And of course, my steeper!
