Welcome to Tea Time Tales! It's a blog of daily happenings in the life of a tea room owner. Sometimes strange, sometimes wonderful, always interesting. The variety of people I meet and the things they say and do never ceases to amaze me. So, make yourself a nice cup of tea, sit back, relax and enjoy!
Also, we cordially invite you to respond with your own Tea Time Tales. We'd love to hear about interesting teas, intriguing tales, and special times with special friends you've had over tea.
Finally, the move to our new location on Monroe Street is completed! We are so happy with the outcome! Our register area has a new addition--a blown up photo of the colorful tea pluckers in a tea field from our journey to Sri Lanka. So, everyone who comes into the shop gets a preview of that beautiful tea-land.
The entire shop seems to be a mirror image of the old one, so I'm having to move left where I used to move right, but everything is fresh and clean, bright and beautiful, so it's all good! Here's a peek of our expanded tea wall which now has almost 150 different teas and room for expansion, the new tea bar, and our "Tea Cottage" which houses tea tins ready for refills in the service area. So, if you find yourself in the area, please check out our new space, munch on our home-made, made-from-scratch scones and, of course, pick a nice cup of tea from the largest selection of premium teas in the Midwest.
