Dharlene Marie Fahl has long been connecting tea and spirituality with an inner journey of self-discovery, self-healing, and self-love. She began by writing healing prayers to enjoy while slowly sipping tea in sweet surrender and now has 101 of them. Her first book “Sereni-Tea: Seven Sips to BLISS,” is available on Amazon which includes a Foreword by Dan Robertson. Dharlene Marie is a Level 3+ Certified Tea Specialist with the Specialty Tea Institute of America, and traveled to China as a delegate in the China Tea Tour with the Tea Association of the USA in 2007.

Dharlene Marie was also a participant in the first American Tea Masters Association program in San Diego in 2008 and a featured guest speaker at the first Indian Tea Forum in October of 2010 in Siliguri, India. She was hosted for over a month by Rajiv Lochan of Lochan Tea and Shiv Saria of Rohini Tea Estate and traveled to many parts of the Darjeeling tea-growing areas. In 2011, Dharlene Marie spent time in the tea fields and factories of the Shizuoka tea-growing area in Japan. She has also visited our own American Tea Plantation in Charleston, South Carolina.

Ms. Fahl is an inspirational speaker with several heartfelt presentations and tea demonstrations that she offers to companies, organizations, women’s groups, churches, as well as appreciating our seniors by bringing tea into their communities and spoiling them just to make their day.

Her message is simple: “In the time it takes to mindfully sip a cup of tea, you can calm your mind, change your life, and claim your bliss.” In her books and meditations she explains how easily this can be done. She will soon be introducing her tea poetry in a book called A Passion for Tea.


You can find her on most social media platforms.
