Who We Are
Welcome! We are Larry and Tamara Rhoads, owners of Inspirations Tea Room & Eatery, Two Hearts Inn, and Teaoli (local, online, and wholesale), and we are proud to call Oklahoma our home.
Our flagship store, Inspirations Tea Room, opened in February of 2005, fulfilling our desire to provide a place in Edmond and the greater Oklahoma City area that would encourage the gathering of faith, family, and friends. In time, our vision grew, and we opened the Two Hearts Inn Bed & Breakfast in December 2007 at the same location. The goal of the Two Hearts Inn is to encourage marriages by providing a place for couples to renew, rekindle, and relax.
Through the years, we have served more than 700,000 customers, sharing with them the health benefits of tea. Our personal focus on a healthier lifestyle led us to the discovery of an amazing line of extra virgin olive oils and balsamic vinegars, which we now purchase directly from one of the most trusted importers of quality oils in the world. As we combined our love for TEA with what we believe to be the very best extra virgin olive OILS and balsamic vinegars, “TEAOLI” was born.
At Teaoli, we are delighted to offer you the highest quality ultra-premium extra virgin olive oils, beautifully aged balsamic vinegars, and carefully selected fine teas. In May of 2016, we expanded our interest in tea by purchasing a tea blending company located in Seattle that we had been purchasing some of our teas from for many years. We are proud to now offer Teaoli’s own uniquely blended teas made in Oklahoma.
At Teaoli, we are committed to offering the highest quality and most superbly fresh products from around the world at affordable prices. In-store guests of Teaoli can experience fun, interactive sampling of our olive oils, balsamic vinegars, and teas, all bursting with flavor. We will also help guests understand the numerous health benefits of our products, as well as the diverse uses. Our family and culinary team continually work to develop recipes and educational events that help you incorporate olive oils, balsamics, and tea into your lifestyle, enabling you to experience a healthier you.
What Inspires Us
We view our businesses as a God-given responsibility and ministry. As proud parents of four grown children and ten wonderful grandchildren, it is our purpose to live our lives as an example worth following. Life is full of both ups and downs, but we have discovered that God’s Word always holds true: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
