Lydia Criss is a South Dakota native and purchased French Creek Tea Co. in May of 2020. After receiving a bachelor's degree in Communication Studies, she was still unsure of what her future career would hold. When the opportunity to buy French Creek Tea came along, she knew her life-long love of tea had found its home. 

"Thanks for choosing French Creek Tea! This has been such an exciting journey so far, and I can't wait to see how this adventure unfolds. Thank you so much to our wonderful customers and friends for sharing the journey with me! I hope our tea brings a smile to your face and refreshment to your soul!"

Love, Lydia
