I’m Kathleen Edinger, certified tea consultant, Founder and owner of TeaScapes®.  Our tea company provides a relaxing tea experience at our newly opened tea bar, TeaScapes®, Beyond the Tea in Atlantic Highlands, NJ.  This experience includes onsite tea parties, tastings, and events featuring our extensive retail line of premium, customized loose tea blends, tea accessories, gluten free, vegan baked goods and light fare.


I live in New Jersey with my beautiful family and we all strive for a healthy lifestyle that includes drinking tea.   After practicing physical therapy for over 24 years, I decided to embark on another path in health and wellness.   I rediscovered my love of tea for my own health reasons and for the wonderful calming effect it had on me.  It became my mission to share this relaxing and healthy experience with others.   This journey resulted in the birth of TeaScapes®

By working with a master tea blender, we are able to provide exclusive blends that are only available for purchase at our tea bar, website and other TeaScapes® supported locations.  Based on celebrity events that TeaScapes® has participated in, celebrities know that tea is not a bag; it is an experience.  Our tea bar and premium teas bring this relaxing tea experience to you one cup at a time.  Imagine what it would feel like to nourish your health and well-being and experience this every single day. 

Our mission is to encourage you to step away from the chaos of the day, make time for yourself and “Enjoy the Moment” one cup of tea at a time. Contact us for all your tea needs!
