Kim McHugh Bio/Speaking Engagements
Kim McHugh is the first Certified Tea Blending Master in the state of Texas and one of only a handful of Certified Tea Masters nationwide. She has certifications from The Specialty Tea Institute and the American Tea Master Association. This love affair with tea was sparked by a series of life changing events and a devotion to learning, blending and tasting teas for over a decade. In 2013 she opened the first tea room in Bellaire, Texas, McHugh Tea Room and Gifts offering over 65 organic teas from around the world as well as tea-infused foods, tea classes, a Private Party Room, Afternoon Tea (“High Tea”) and full-service lunches served 6 days a week.
Prior to opening the doors to McHugh Tea Room, Kim was an Executive Senior Sales Director and public speaker for over 20 years. Her dedication to leadership and personal growth has evoked women to “push the boundaries”. Following her cosmetics career, she represented a medical device company which focused on women’s breast health. This further sparked her interest in tea as many surgeons she met with suggested that consuming tea is one of the “best dietary habits for cancer prevention”.
Kim focuses on the many uses of tea in food infusion and beauty regiments discovered by universities, hospitals and fellow tea enthusiasts. She now teaches about the miraculous health benefits, social aspects and the fascinating history of organic teas from around the world to private groups, companies, and her large following of loyal customers.
She has been featured by media outlets such as TeaTime magazine, Community Impact, The Buzz, Tea in Texas, Modern Luxury Bride, Voyage Magazine, CW 39, Fox 26 and even local libraries!
Kim has a humorous coaching style that transforms the way we think and feel about our health, our happiness and our busy lives. Her motto is…there is always a way to see your tea cup half full!
