Nine years and counting
Nov 14, 2008 | Written by Anupa Mueller
We celebrate our 9th Anniversary this weekend at the Tea Room - November 15th and 16th. We opened our doors officially on November 6, 1999 and each year since then, we've celebrated our Anniversary during a weekend in November. Many in the neighborhood didn't think we'd make it through even one year, let alone 9. They couldn't understand who would come to a place that served only tea, no coffee and one that didn't stay open for dinner. We'd love to change that last situation but can't until we expand and have a place with a full kitchen which would allow us to offer a proper dinner menu. We're planning a Special Menu tomorrow plus games, raffles, prizes, giveaways and, of course, sales on tea and accessories. We are especially mindful this year of the tough times faced by all. No one is in the mood to spend on anything other than essentials. The holiday season looms and brings even greater stress. We decided early on this year that we would not contribute to this anxiety and would price all our Tea Accessories and yummy gourmet treats at lower-than-normal prices. So you will find a pleasant surprise when you visit us this weekend and for the remainder of the season - gift baskets under $20, packages of tea for $3, a huge variety of teas for every taste, Organic Chocolates for $2.75, Clotted Cream for $1.75 and always, a well-seasoned soup or toasted sandwich to warm your day. Thank you for a wonderful 9 years and may we have the opportunity to share many more with you.
