Your hostess, Frankee
, is an ITMA Certified Tea Master. Not only is tea her favorite beverage, it's her passion. Upon completion of the course of study with the International Tea Masters Association in 2010, Frankee received her certification. Little did she know that the title was just the first step in what promises to be a life-long journey and exploration into tea and the founding of her virtual tea shop, A Thirst for Tea.
Although A Thirst for Tea carries most of the more popular and well known teas it specializes in rare, artisan whole leaf teas from world renowned tea estates as well as from small historic tea gardens that are content to remain small. Most of their products never go to auction, but rather are all privately sold. Hand-crafted by the some of the best tea masters in the world, Thirst's teas are sure to bring a deeper appreciation of the artistry of tea.
In her capacity as a ITMA Certified Tea Master, Frankee writes and lectures on various aspects of tea and offers monthly tea tastings
here at the Voss Inn. On behalf of the International Tea Masters Association Frankee conducts Tea Sommelier Training Courses here at the Voss Inn and at various venues in the West. She serves an informal afternoon tea to guests of our Bozeman lodging on a daily basis as well as more elaborate traditional afternoon teas by reservation.
