Jodet is one of our busiest Tea Ambassadors! She’s the leader of Samovar Hayes Valley, an MBA student, and a writer. How does tea fit into this full life? Jodet drinks tea to energize her when she needs it… and to relax and slow her down when that is in order.

When it’s all said and done, will you consider whether your presence on this planet made one iota of difference? We believe everyone wants to know their lives made a difference.
