I strongly believe that every girl needs a good tea shop (at least the tea obsessed such as myself). Unfortunately, mine is in a different state. I am lucky enough to get back to English Tealeaves at least once a year, and every time I am in Colorado, my mom and I partake in our ritual trip that has become tradition (She is far luckier and only lives down the road from this sweet place).
|A gift from the shop. I call her Mrs. Potts...|
because I am from that generation.
The owners are a lovely English couple who exceed all expectations of the perfect Engligh tea shop proprietors. Lynn is quiet but sweetly polite and helpful. Rob is gregarious, with just enough cheek to keep you on your toes.
Their selections and varieties of tea account for more than I could drink in 6 months time. Every imaginable flavor of black and green tea, along with strong pure brews that will warm you from within.
|These are my two current favorites from the shop:|
Rose White and Caramel Nut.
The best traditions always seem to happen on accident, don't they? I never have good luck if I set out to find my new favorite place or demand to start a new tradition, but they always seem to pop up when I least expect them. Maybe the surprise and spontineity of it all is what makes them so good.
Do you have a favorite tea place? I haven't found one closer to home yet. It is one of the businesses that I am always starting in my head. Don't you think it would be fun to own a tea shop? I will have to start working on my accent.
There is no sponsorship or exchange of money for kind words here. I just genuinely love this place and think you should go.
