Meet Our ChocolaTEAM


Polly is our fearless leader! A former nurse, she has owned ChocolaTea for nearly ten years and also owns The Pantry on Tap, a gourmet food store specializing in oil and vinegar. Polly is a proud mom and grandmother who loves a great cuppa tea!


I'm planning to study Music Therapy, I was born on New Year's Day, and I collect socks with animals on them!

Favorite ChocolaTea drink: Toddy with Soymilk, Vanilla, Salted Caramel, and Chocolate


I am a proud Momma of two! Just got back from a lovely several week long vacation in Hawaii, I love beaches.  Favorite Chocolatea Drink: Cherry Cheesecake Latte!


Juliana is our marketing guru and a CMU graduate. Her favorite drink is a light peach boba, made with a mix of Bangkok and Peachy Keen green teas, coconut milk, and tapioca pearls with passionfruit poppers. 


Jackson loves all things boba and Spider-Man! This makes him our superhero at ChocolaTea. While you're more likely to see him at The Pantry- every once in a while you'll catch a glimpse of him here with us, saving the day. 


Kendall is the newest member of the ChocolaTEAM. She LOVES taro boba, hot and iced. She's a fast learner and she's great with all of our customers. 

Future Baristas

Emma, Parker, Elliot and Kenzie are sure to be top notch Baristas. You may see them running round the store helping their Guppy and Grandpa.
