Julie’s pathway into the world of tea and coffee began with her love of herbs. Starting in the western hills of Sonoma County, California in 1990, she raised aromatic and tonic herbs and flowers, which she sold at local farmers’ markets. In 1995 Julie hooked up with the folks at Taylor Maid Gardens and was given the wonderful opportunity to create the tea division of Taylor Maid Farms Organic Coffee & Tea. After spending 10 years in wholesale, Julie yearned to serve her customers face to face and create a soothing space for the community to share and learn.
From a love of all things plant-made, Julie’s coffee & tea garden was born Jan 1st 2005. And now 12 years later, Julie’s Oakland opens its doors: 4316 Telegraph Ave.
