Michelle Brown


Michelle has been in the food and beverage industry for 40+ years. While she has experience opening many restaurants, her time working for Restaurant Nora and developing Asia Nora's tea program ignited her passion for tea and sustainably sourced foods, launching her towards opening Teaism. Over the years she has acted as a support and sounding board for other women entrepreneurs.



Teaism is a set of DC-based restaurant-teahouses that specialize in high quality loose leaf teas and serving healthy, Asian-inspired meals. It is owned by Michelle Brown and Linda Neumann. Teaism has been operating since 1996, and now has 5 locations around the city. Teaism also sells loose leaf tea and tea accessories, bakes cookies, caters, wholesales tea to other businesses, and so much more.
