My name is Lily, I am the store supervisor at Tundra Transfer Ltd. I love my job because it gives me a great excuse to learn more about a topic I have a lot of personal interest in - tea. I have always enjoyed tea, growing up green tea was the only caffeinated beverage I was ever allowed to drink and from that start my interest has grown. Since my employment at Tundra Transfer I have made it part of my job to be a knowledgeable source of information on teas and started a line of Wellness teas- A fantastic line of natural herbal remedies for all kinds of ailments.
