Emily Held, a Mendocino local, has grown up to value plants, herbs, and mindful living. Practicing alchemy since she was a child, Emily has created a small line of natural hygiene and healing products, Mamas Medicinals. Inspired by her experience with tea, Emily has decided to make quality fine teas accessible to the Ukiah community by opening Alchemy Tea House. Alchemy helps build community through tea by supplying a comforting space to slow down, and re-connect with the present moment. This is a digital-free zone. Please, no phones, laptops, or i-pads… Now you can truly unplug, take a breath, and enjoy the moment, giving you the chance to experience undivided attention and a deeper relaxation and personal connection. At Alchemy, you’ll find premium and organic loose leaf teas, hand-crafted tea drinks, elixirs, tonics, and extracts made with various fresh, local, or wild-crafted ingredients, as well as locally sourced organic produce for its delicious, seasonal, and light tea-house style fare. This is more then a place to get a cup of tea. It’s like a retreat in Downtown Ukiah, a chance to step away from life’s stresses into an alternate reality. We support you in unwinding to experience some fresh energy. People often leave Alchemy with their spirits lifted, feeling nourished, relaxed and rejuvenated.nAlchemy, helping to build America’s tea culture, and helping you relax and reconnect to yourself and your nature.
