One of Tehachapi’s oldest doughnut shops will celebrate 20 years in the cruller business.
Tea Donuts, located at 807 Tucker Road, Suite B, will embrace the milestone with new owners, John Pe and Chantha Lay, a father and daughter team. The family took over the business at the beginning of the year.
“We have been coming here for at least 15 years,” said Vickie Jones, a longtime and loyal customer.
For the past couple of years, she and her husband, Bob, have been going to Tea Donuts every morning, except for Sundays. Asked what’s their favorite doughnut variety, Bob said the apple fritter, hands down, with Vickie preferring the chocolate chip roll — however, the glazed old fashion is a close second.
In addition to the tried and true favorites, Pe and Lay now offer a selection of new varieties, including turnovers, cronuts (which is a fried croissant popular on the East Coast), chocolate chip rolls and ham and cheese croissants. Added to the doughnut variety are blueberry doughnuts and an assortment of twists.
“We are bringing all new recipes over here,” said Lay.
Tea’s Donuts also offers smoothies in addition to coffee and tea beverages.
Both father and daughter live in Bakersfield, and travel to Tehachapi in shifts every day to run the store.
