Discovery: A Revelation of Colors
Jeni Dodd began her exploration of tea when for medical reasons she had to find ways to ease stress in her life. Over the years her explorations have allowed her to gain strong firsthand knowledge of the terroir, tea production and tea rituals. She has established strong long-standing relations with tea communities in Nepal, China, Japan and Taiwan.
Jeni’s ongoing journey and work with these communities is continuously inspired by a fascination of the magical camelia sinensis leaf and the distinctive character that manifests as tea. For Jeni each leaf offers not only a revelation in taste but also in color. Her synesthetic senses allow for a perceptual phenomenon whereby she tastes in color. This unique way of discovering tea is central to Jeni Dodd Tea and its desire to elevate the aesthetic and sensory appreciation of tea so that it can be experienced similar to our perception of art.
Cultivate: Sowing Vibrant Experiences

She is a thoughtful leader, expert and enthusiast that offers her insight as a guest lecturer at several different events, including large tea expos and conferences.
