Good Medicine Tea is a labor of love started in 2014 by Nikol Clark and Randy Goetz. In July 2018, Randy and Nikol passed the GMT baton on to their longtime employee, Alexa Savard and her husband, Turner.
Meet the Team
Alexa is our Master Blender, handcrafting our tea blends, concocting new recipes, and handling our vast tea, spice, and herb inventory. She is a self-proclaimed “tea nerd” and can usually be found drinking, sharing, and learning (more, and more...and more) about tea.
A Columbia Gorge native, Alexa has been drinking tea since she was a small child. One of her first “tea moments” was sharing peppermint tea with her Dad, from her favorite ceramic mug.
As an adult, her passion for tea deepened while she was living in Taiwan. Sharing gongfu-style Taiwanese oolong became a weekly ritual with a group of friends, and she was hooked. Alexa’s time at Good Medicine has also developed her love of herbal medicine, and she continues to expand her knowledge of herblore and the natural world.
Alexa and her husband currently have 25 tea plants in the ground at their homestead in BZ corner, and hope that at least a few of them will survive the winter (cross your fingers). Good Medicine may someday offer locally grown tea!
Alexa brings her passion and experience to the holistic vision of Good Medicine, and to the incredible community that we have in the Gorge. She loves being a part of both.
