Ryan Hinson Manager
Ryan became fascinated with tea about seven years ago. He used to have trouble sleeping and started drinking Celestial Seasoning’s teas. Before long he had collected quite the teabag selection for the pantry. From there he started reading books and articles concerning all things tea. He found the subject of tea and the way it has nurtured human history very intriguing. The medicinal aspect of the brew would come in a bit later. He started purchasing loose leaf soon after and left the pre-bag scene behind for a higher quality product. At this time he and his brother Richard had discussed going into business together and since he was so passionate about tea, he put a packet together for him (Richard) to review and see if there was any future potential in a teashop. So, they hooked up with TeaGschwendner a few months later and within the year, they had opened our shop. Unfortunately, the TeaGschwendner marriage didn’t last but ten months, and from there they decided to go at it alone. Tin Roof Teas was born soon after.

For Dallas growing up in the South meant always having Lipton in the cupboard. It wasn’t until her boyfriend, now husband, took her into a teashop that her strong passion and quest for knowledge about tea was ignited. Now, Dallas gains great pleasure in sharing her love for tea and culture with anyone who’d like to learn more. She can empathize with the neophyte, as she remembers what it was like to be clueless about tea, but now receives great satisfaction from helping anyone dive into the world of high-quality, loose leaf tea. Whether at a gaming event or sitting around the family dinner table, you will always find her sharing a fresh steeping of tea!
