If you want to know about Point Loma Tea, you need to get to know its owner, Cheryl Graf. Cheryl is a life-long tea enthusiast, really – since childhood. Some of her earliest memories are of spending time with her Grandmothers in the Midwest having tea parties. Her Mother, as a Minister’s wife, was well known for her hospitality, welcoming visitors to her home with fresh-baked goodies and tea. Cheryl’s first job as a teenager was assisting the British owner of a Boarding House in Bellflower, CA provide afternoon teas for her guests, serving tea, polishing the silver, and more. As a wife and mother, she often worked in Church Hospitality and Women’s Ministries, and helped organize many tea events, from a dozen participants in a home, to kid’s tea and etiquette events, to hundreds of women in hotel ballrooms. In 2000, after a successful career in office administration, Cheryl had the opportunity to “retire” from that career, and follow her passion for tea and hospitality as a full-time career. And that journey over the last dozen years culminated in the opening of Point Loma Tea in October 2012. For Cheryl, it is all about the experience you will have when you explore the awesome specialty teas and related accessories in our store, and in your home, with your family and friends.
