Members

Membership in the Global Tea Initiative is comprised of UC Davis faculty, librarians, staff, and students from across the disciplines and campus. Faculty lead the way in research and teaching. Librarians manage  information and advise faculty and students on helpful resources for their studies. Staff members assist with such things as internships and career development for our students. Students point to the future of tea through their innovative research projects.
