The new shop, in soothing grays and white, sells more than 30 blends of teas — served hot or cold — gourmet tea drinks (like coconut tea mixed with house-made almond milk), and fusion tea (tea, fruit juice and whole fruit). It also has a fresh juice bar and an all-natural/gluten-free bakery case (including sweet potato brownies).
Jill Minton, who owns the shop with her husband Brandon, has Celiac disease, as does her daughter, father and sister. So the family became focused on a healthier lifestyle that included eating healthy items and drinking tea and juice.
Menu items include brie, cheddar and fruit snack/lunch packages, apple nachos, peanut butter protein bars, blueberry lemon fusion tea and coconut almond lattes.
The shop is open some lucky numbers - from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week.
