In Pursuit of Tea – Office Manager

Do you currently work in the specialty beverage or food service industry? Would you like to stay connected to the industry but also have weekends off? Then In Pursuit of Tea is for you!

In Pursuit of Tea was started by friends in 1999 to explore small farms in Asia and find the finest teas available, some of which seldom leave their country of origin. Each year, they spend time in historic tea-growing regions to taste the season’s harvest and select the best. Introducing the West to these traditional teas—and elevating the level of service in the fine dining and hospitality industry for nearly two decades—remains their mission.

To join their boutique team, they are looking for an individual who is organized, detail-oriented, and entrepreneurial-spirited, with strong customer service and communication skills to help manage their wholesale and online business.

The Office Manager is expected to maintain a strong working knowledge of all the teas and teaware, as well as maintain an awareness of current events relating to the industry and the local food and beverage scene.
