A company that originated in Old Pueblo more than 15 years ago — under a different name — and then moved to Idaho, has made its way back to Tucson.

After being regular clients and huge fans of Susan Nunn’s tea, which was coined as Thunder Mountain Tea, Yvette-Marie Margaillan and her husband, Eddie Diaz, gladly took over the business when Nunn announced her departure from the company.

“We both love entrepreneurship and small businesses,” said Yvette-Marie Margaillan. “A few months ago, Susan let us know she was closing the company to focus solely on being a writing instructor, and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to bring her small-batch blends back to Tucson.”

Tucson Tea Company is currently online only, but they’re looking forward to having a physical location “once the pandemic is more under control.”
