I was lucky enough to share a cup (okay, more than one cup) of tea with Trudy Ann Tellis of Trudy Ann’s Chai last weekend. She’s one of my neighbours and she’s also one of the people who work hard to help create and maintain the kind of community Grandview-Woodland is famous for.
We talked about tea and spices, music, potlucks, and all the things she loves about this neighbourhood.
Here’s a list of the organizations, people, and places Trudy Ann mentions in the video:
These are just a few of the ways Grandview-Woodland builds community. I’m looking forward to discovering more with you as this series continues.
Thanks to Trudy Ann (and Coco) for a great interview!

Yay, Vancouver! Just a suggestion, but next time please don’t back light your subject, it was really hard to see Trudy’s beautiful face 🙂
Thanks, Heather. I tried to mitigate the back-lighting as much as I could, but there was a limited field where we could set up the interview there. Trudy was a lovely interview subject, wasn’t she?
Thank you for posting this! I tried her tea once at a craft show a few years ago and loved it but I lost the package and couldn’t remember the name until watching your video. This made my day. Plus, what a lovely interview – what a very cool lady! 🙂
I’m so glad this post helped reconnect you with her tea! And Trudy Ann is the kind of active, caring person that I really admire.
Dear Teresa, what a wonderful neighbourhood you are living in and what a fabulous idea for an interview – now this is something that I have not seen on any blog yet and I am truly charmed!
Hope your Sunday is going well!
Thanks, Andrea – that means so much! I’m going to be doing more soon, as I can schedule them. It’s been a lot of fun and I think I’ll end up with a lovely snapshot of this time and place.
Another wonderful interview and a glimpse into your beautiful community, Teresa!
Thanks, Ksenia! I’m glad I can share my neighbourhood with all of you.
