Tahoe Teas: reflecting healthy mountain lifestyle
TAHOE TEAS EMBODY JOY, wellness and health through herbal blends and certified organic teas. “I always wanted to start a company that reflects our healthy Tahoe lifestyle,” says Alenka Vrecek, founder of Tahoe Teas.
The Tahoe City resident grew up in Slovenia where she spent a lot of time with her grandparents in the foothills of the Alps. Her fond memories of drying chamomile, rosehips, berries and mountain herbs as a child play a big role in her life.
Alenka’s premium organic, loose-leaf teas include Tahoe Blue, Tahoe Green and Tahoe Local (with organic yerba mate to invigorate the body and mind, and a touch of spearmint and lemon peel), among others.
They are sold throughout Truckee (Cooking Gallery, for example); Tahoe City (Tahoe House, New Moon Natural Foods and others); Whole Foods Market in Reno and Sacramento; and online.
Vrecek will share a brief history of tea and a wide selection of her brewed blends on February 9 from 6-8 p.m. at The Cedar House Sport Hotel in Truckee.
