Jeffrey McIntosh

CEO and Founder of Teabook, Jeffrey McIntosh led a tumultuous early life. If you could name a destructive habit - he had it. That is, until he had a cup of tea in Seattle's International District. He dropped out of college and quit his job the next week, journeying to Southwestern China to study tea. His quest for the world’s finest tea has driven him to apprentice with one of China’s finest tea makers, to Russia’s moneyed elite, and finally to the Pacific Northwest’s startup community.  Now he spends his time studying tea deeply not only with taste buds but feeling.
