The Tea Smith scoops up an award nomination
Tim Smith has been in the tea business for 15 years.
But he wasn't always a tea drinker, his wife actually turned him on to it and since then he's been hooked.
The Tea Smith may be a small building but size isn't an issue for the shop.
Over 150 tea variations can be enjoyed all hand crafted by Tim and his "tea smithies."
And after 15 years of hard work they are finally being recognized.
The Tea Smith was recently nominated for the John Harney Lifetime Achievement Award by the World Tea Expo.
Tim said he was shocked by the nomination but humbled to be named with so many tea enthusiasts from all over the world.
The winner of the award will be named June 12th in Las Vegas.
