Jeni Dodd Tea
Jeni Dodd, a native of America's heartland, has traveled to tea-growing regions across the globe in search of the perfect cup of tea. She has visited all of the original tea-producing countries, as well as up-and-coming regions like Nepal, witnessing the hard work and dedication of growers and producers in creating quality tea.

Jeni is the founder and owner of Jeni Dodd Tea, a company that specializes in importing hand-crafted, unique specialty teas. She also offers tea education for groups and events, striving to expand public awareness of the specialty tea market and introduce consumers to the exquisite joy of tea.

As a Certified Tea Specialist and teacher at the Specialty Tea Institute, Jeni has been recognized for her expertise in the field. She has been awarded Best Speaker at the World Tea Expo for the past five years and has presented at TEXSOM and regional tea festivals across the United States. Jeni was also the keynote speaker at the Australian Tea Cultural Seminar and has spoken at both the 2018 and 2023 International Tea Festival in Nepal. During the COVID pandemic, she created Grape Grain & Leaf™, a virtual tea cocktail experience featuring a collaboration with a Certified Sommelier from a three-star Michelin restaurant in New York City. 

In addition to her work in the tea industry, Jeni practices law in New York City. Despite her travels and success, she remains an avid fan of Kansas Jayhawk basketball, staying true to her roots.
