About the Twelve Winds Tea Company And Our Teas
Paula's interest in plants began in her childhood, but sprouted forth while taking classes in the University of Kansas botany department during the late 60s. From this passion she started and sold businesses: a catalogue specializing in French gourmet vegetable and herb seeds, and a fresh herb business that covered the Greater Kansas City area. She has now expanded her interest into the world of tea, herbal crafts, and her artistic endeavors.
