Life is about good taste and tea. Bob Williford is manager & In-House Tea Expert of TeaTime in Scottsdale, Arizona
Bob Williford views his role as manager of TeaTime in Scottsdale as a calling to service and education. His objective is to serve all of his customers with care and to educate them about tea, helping them find a special experience in each cup.
In 2007, a visit to a Japanese restaurant where he enjoyed drinking an outstanding green tea piqued his interest in tea. Ever the student, Williford began researching tea and visited a local tea store where the owner and customers encouraged and fanned the flame.
Over the next couple of years, Williford dedicated himself to learning all he could about tea. He joined the team at TeaGschwendner, TeaTime’s predecessor and the first US franchise store for the world’s largest tea retailer, in 2009. In mid-2010, TeaTime became locally owned and Williford was named store manager, where he is responsible for all the logistical elements that enable TeaTime’s staff to provide a great experience, enlightening the public on the nuances of tea through educational tea tastings, as well as community and private events.Location: Teatime 7051 East 5th Avenue, Scottsdale, AZ 85251-3219(480) 686-8503?Interviews with notable new thinkers, Dr CJ Henius and co-host Stephanie Martin interviews special guests every Friday.
