As the resident tea specialist at The Ritz-Carlton, Phoenix since January, 2000, Jeffrey Hattrick is recognized for his expertise of fine service, a passion for tea, and an ability to create the perfect dining experience. Jeffrey has been honored with several awards and recognitions including being named number 10 on the list of Top “101 things we love about Phoenix” by Arizona Foothills magazine as well as recently receiving the J. Willard Marriott Award of Excellence – an international service award given annually for customer service excellence. He serves as a resource for many not only in the Valley but also travels nationally to share his tea knowledge through public and private lectures.
Jeffrey believes that tea is more than just a beverage. “Tea is a vessel by which we can navigate our mood,” he says. “It can enhance the space we are in or guide us to a place we would rather be. Tea is an experience that engages all of the senses and allows us to enjoy an art of living.” Jeffrey emulates an art of living every day in all he does. Jeffrey has become an integral part of the tea community in the Valley of the Sun. We invite you to experience the time-honored tradition of afternoon tea with a level of style rarely paralleled.
