Morgan and Wael, the team behind Jeddah’s Tea

A couple heavily steeped in tea culture, Morgan and Wael are bringing unique teas and cultures to Durham.

The couple’s business, Jeddah’s Tea, features teas found all over the world and are organic and fair-trade. It will be the latest pop-up experience for Durham’s American Tobacco Campus in April.

Best of the Bull, a popular online guide to Durham, featured Jeddah’s Tea earlier this year, writing: “Husband-and-wife team Wael and Morgan plan to combine their passions for tea, social activism, and community and aim to create a space where all people can come together over a great cup of tea. They love and appreciate the many roles a cup of tea can play the reconciler, the peacekeeper, the comforter, the storyteller and the sage.”

Jeddah’s Tea is affectionately named after Wael’s maternal grandmother who sold traditional tea blends at her storefront in Hargeisa, Somaliland. It is her legacy that Morgan and Wael hope to honor by offering teas from cultures, growers and countries seldom acknowledged in the American tea market, in hopes of using their medium to spark intercultural curiosity.

Jeddah’s Tea will spend the month of April as the PopUp at American Tobacco.
