It all Started with the Love of Premium Tea
ESP Tea Emporium was founded by Steven Popec and his wife Elena. However, it wasn’t until Steven met Elena that he truly discovered the wonderful world of teas and tisanes.
With Elena’s Russian upbringing, and her first hand cultural experience of tea, she introduced Steven to a whole new world of tea as an art form. Russia is one of the countries where tea still plays a major role in culture. Where, for most, it’s more of a lifestyle than just a hot beverage.
It was during this period that Steven made the decision to join in Elena’s passion for learning more about Teaism, tea cultures and tea traditions. This made up the foundation for our belief that the teas we sell aren’t just an enjoyable beverage, they are a small part of a unique and diverse culture.
In many ways tea is a lost art form, people often forget that it has been used for thousands of years, all over the world, in varying forms of Teaism, traditions and ceremonies. After having this realization, Steven and Elena decided to launch ESP Tea Emporium, a brand dedicated to reacquainting people with the lost art of tea.
At ESP Tea Emporium our goal isn’t to just sell you some tea, our main goal is to educate. One of the ways we do this is with the quality information we include in our blog. Our extensive blog explores all aspects of tea in depth with topics including the health benefits of tea, tea’s eastern ideology, the history of tea, tea processes, classic traditions, cultural aspects of tea and so much more information that is focused on the art of tea.
