The term "tea entrepreneur" definitely applies to tearoom owner Mary Greengo, affectionately known as Queen Mary among patrons and employees. After earning both a culinary degree and a baking and specialty pastry degree, the Seattle, Washington, native decided to open the Queen Mary Tea Room and Restaurant in her hometown 30 years ago. The venue remains one of the oldest tearooms in the United States that has not changed ownership since its inception. In 2011, the business expanded with the Queen Mary Tea Emporium just a block away from the restaurant. In both locations, visitors can purchase the signature line of teas and blends Mary creates.
