The Tea Room
an intentional experience
Co-hosted by herbalist Meaghan Owens and poet Amanda Ngoho Reavey, Tea & Tattered Pages offers afternoon tea sittings where participants can learn about tea and herbalism, share poetry, workshop pieces, make chapbooks, and more! Each workshop is unique, and we often bring in guest writers, poets, herbalists, musicians, artists and others. Check out our events page for upcoming workshops, or contact us if you'd like us to bring a workshop to you.
