About Us

Now open in Portage Plaza

Welcome to the Pantry on Tap Oil and Vinegar store! Polly Kragt, owner of ChocolaTea, has been ‘feeding’ her passion to open a specialty Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar store for several years. Polly was born and raised right here in Kalamazoo and just retired from her nursing career at Bronson Hospital. Her passion for food, her strong Italian heritage, and the need to grow her ChocolaTea business all developed into opening ‘The Pantry On Tap’. When a storefront just outside ChocolaTea’s back door became available this year it was the perfect opportunity to bring in all the delicious ideas that ChocolaTea has been wanting to add to their collection. Thus ‘The Pantry’ has become just that! We now have the space to develop a specialty shop full of bulk spices, herbs, salts, and blends. All priced by the ounce, just like ChocolaTea loose leaf teas. Most importantly, The Pantry brings you fresh-from-the-tap specialty oils and vinegars, all priced by the 100 ml’s which is unique to this type of business as we offer a bottle recycling program too. Please stop in, taste and see for yourself!
