Tea Maven or Barteasta?

Lauren is a tea maven at Pippa’s Real Tea on Water Street. That’s what Pippa calls the people who work for her, and it’s appropriate as they know a lot about tea.

However, people who serve at a booze bar are called bartenders. People who serve at coffee bars are called baristas. There should be a name with the word bar in itĀ for tea bar tenders.
