Refresh the body, mind and spirit with our international menu of teas, our healing herbal apothecary , massage therapy, art exhibits and music.

Tell us about your business.

The tea room started with the intention of providing the community with a place of respite while learning to appreciate the diversity of single origin teas and heal with our creative blends of herbs. We have started to package loose leaf tea tins and hope to sell them in small markets and grow to larger grocery stores. We currently sell our loose leaf tea in a few upscale cafe's in Philadelphia but hope to be able to provide many coffee shops and cafes with top shelf loose leaf teas.
