Michael Shannon – proprietor of BellocQ, tea atelier, at CapsuleNYC. Michael reported to me that Juniper Ridge has inspired some of the flavors in his brilliant teas – a fact I am endlessly grateful for. I most recently enjoyed his White Wolf tea and it is a brilliant, round tea worthy of me including it in Coyote and Thunder’s Vine of the Earth category – a category normally reserved for wines I love.
