We're coming into the home stretch! Just one more week until our tea shop is officially open and we couldn't be more excited. We actually held a private event last night for family and friends as a sort of test run for our grand opening on October 1st. It was great how many people showed up and we got some excellent feedback on our space! The tea was definitely flowing.
For the next week we'll be putting on finishing touches and preparing ourselves for the grand opening. Pictured above is what we refer to as "tea island" - an area where visitors can examine all the teas that we offer. Each tea is in a small sampler tin that customers can open to look at the appearance and enjoy the aroma of the leaves. The samples are also accompanied by brief descriptions. We wanted to provide a more interactive experience for our customers to really be able to explore tea and perhaps smell leaves they never have before.
At our grand opening we will be sampling teas and offering light snacks. All of our teas will also be available for purchase by the ounce. So make sure to stop by next Friday between 12p.m. and 7p.m. and join in the festivities! We would love to see you all there.
