Tales of the Tea Trade : Oak & Jay
We met Nick through the Tea House and have come to know each other over many cups of tea. Nick & Ella have a very special energy which can be felt through all their creative work so when Nick shared these beautiful hand-crafted tea scoops with us we knew you would love them! Here Nick shares a little of the background to his business 'What has become Oak and Jay has been a long time coming in my head. I have had a passion for designing and building ever since I was old enough to handle tools. There was plenty of scrap wood to be turned into whatever my sister and I could imagine while growing up on an aging horse ranch. Finishing a project always gave me the same bewildering feeling: an awe that I could build something useful with only my hands and tools. That was the beginning, but it wasn’t until much later that the philosophy of Oak & Jay and the importance that I place on transparency and sustainability, became as influential as the joy of creating'
