Margaret Harris

Tea Lover, Tea Entrepreneur, and Tea Teacher

Margaret is the owner of Blue Monkey Tea Company in Pittsburgh PA. Her shop is not only a mecca for tea lovers, with over 300 loose leaf teas and herbs to choose from, but also a place where people learn about tea.

She normally conducts regular Tea Classes with Tea Tastings in her store, and recently (due to COVID19 limitations), she also started a weekly online program called: Tea Saturdays Live on Facebook and Instagram where she covers a vast variety of tea topics and tea news.

Margaret is a founding member of Pittsburgh Tea Association. She enjoys organizing tea events such as: Japanese Tea Ceremonies, Tea Parties, Outdoor Tea Ventures and the Pittsburgh Tea Festival.

She was a finalist in the Tea Infusion Competition at the World Tea Expo in Las Vegas.

Her favorite things include: black teas (no milk!), turning coffee drinkers into tea drinkers, children bringing parents to buy tea, and Tea Shop Mystery books by Laura Childs.
