I apologize for not getting an email out to notify you that we will NOT be at the Tower Grove Farmers’ Market today.
Shop IS open regular hours (9am-5pm)
Come in and see our New Floor!
We are SOOO pleased with it, and the work of Brian at Champion Floor Company who did a great job with our rough and uneven concrete floor. The shop looks so much more like I’d always envisioned…..and could not have afforded without the continuous support of YOU, my regular customers and you sharing the word of mouth about our tiny shop.
Also got another tea rack, so we can (hopefully) make your shopping experience less overwhelming by spreading things out a little more.
In the tea flavors department:
Spring flavors: Cherry Sencha and Cherry Berry Tisane are back; Persian Plum Rose in stock through May-ish. Flavored matchas are back as well (Vanilla, Raspberry, and Blueberry) – save $ – make your own instead of paying Starbucks! …. [I will be featuring a full range of matcha and other green teas at my class at Missouri Botanical Garden on Saturday morning 3/25 9-10:30am]
We’ve been out of Traveler’s Turmeric blend over the past week (waiting on our ginger shipment, hopefully this week). Also expecting delivery of chufa sedge (aka Tiger Nuts) so I can make new batch of Gwy-u Latte.
Look for new items offered at Tower Grove Market this summer too!
We are Grateful for your continued support!
6 remaining tea shopping days till Christmas….extra shopping hours this week:
Sunday 12/18/16 10am-5pm & Thurs 2pm-7pm, PLUS open till 7pm Tues, Wed, Fri; and 9am-4pm on Christmas Eve
Asian teaware, and tea brewing accessories for the tea lover on your list when you don’t know what they like! (Tea lovers on a budget rarely splurge on teaware for themselves – show them you care!)
Also – the Affordable Luxury of really fine, rare teas, like this Taiwanese Black:
It’s no different with his newest project – crafting Ruby #18, Taiwan’s most famous black tea.
Alfredo has spent the last few years learning from Master Aones, the eccentric teamaster who popularized Ruby #18. He also converted a depleted, conventional tea field into a gorgeous, organic garden, full of healthy Ruby #18 cultivar plants. These tea plants are some of the most beautiful we’ve ever seen.
Thanks to these happy, healthy plants, Alfredo’s “18 Ruby” is particularly striking and complex, with notes of cherry, sarsaparilla, and menthol. It’s a bit reminiscent of root beer floats and Cherry Coke… give it a try yourself!
Also some old & new teas from our favorites: PT Harendong (Bhaozhong Green), Hariyali (Moonshine White & Amber Red), Satemwa Estate (Zomba Pearls and Steamed Green)
We sell in small quantities, making prized teas affordable for All…because Everyone Deserves to Enjoy Good Tea!
Here Again – One of our favorite tea sharing events each year.
We are excited to be in Maplewood, with this event just down the block from our shop! It is such a novel and fun idea – and we look forward to learning more about our community via the tale they have created. Shakespeare Festival St. Louis
We will be open extra hours for all the thirsty theater attendees – and you can take advantage of the extra hours as well.
Friday and Saturday evening the shop will be open till 8pm,
AND we will be open 4pm – 8pm on Sunday 9/18 (as well as serving/sampling teas at a booth right in the thick of things)
Come share in the fun.
While Mallory & Galen will be serving tea at Tower Grove Farmers’ Market this morning, Kateri we be down by the riverfront, Sharing Good Healthy Teas with the gang from Yoga Buzz and Co. It is a free event with lots of styles of yoga and other Well-Being resources. We hope you have some time to check it out.
Returning this year, in the World’s Fair Pavilion of Forest Park!
New this year, is a Farmers’ Market area – which is where we will be this Sunday, 8/21/16 10am-5pm, Sharing Good Tea from across the globe.

SHOP TO BE OPEN LATE this Saturday…
Till 11pm SATURDAY 7/30
Butter Beer & Dragon Milk
[special Harry Potter beverages]
Get a drink, then head over to
The Book House, for the launch of this new book at Midnight.
Our July 4th Matcha tasting was a huge hit, and it was overwhelmingly agreed that our new matchas from Hattori Farms, via Tealet are well worth the extra price.
“I finally found a matcha I like”
and, others said “I’ve never tried matcha because I didn’t realize how easy it is.”
As well as selling Hattori matchas in affordable quantities, we will continue to carry our current organic, premium grade matcha – great for lattes and cooking (though higher quality than common cooking grade). We served this one at Maplewood’s “Let Them Eat Art” festival on 7/8, and it was a great opportunity to turn more tea drinkers on to the flavor and health benefits of this green wonder [the First Green Drink].
We in the St. Louis area have been without a local prognosticator for too long. In the spirit of Punxsutawney Phil and Shubenacadie Sam, we are introducing Maplewood Molly.
Maplewood Molly agrees with her Eastern brothers, predicting an early spring.
To celebrate, and warm you through the remaining weeks of winter, we are offering Buy One/Get One specials in our shop this week only (Tues 10-6, Wed 11-6, Thursday 3-7, Friday 10-5).
Buy a cup of tea, get a 2nd cup of equal or lesser value FREE. Buy 1 or 2 oz of looseleaf tea, get additional 1-2 oz free (equal or lesser value). Limited to stock on hand.
Tomorrow at the Schlafly Winter Market (8:30-Noon) I will have and expanded selection (vs. what I have been bringing to Tower Groves). Will mostly be 1oz packages, and some 2oz. Of course, the shop is just a few blocks away for anything else.
Featuring: Aztec Spice (chocolate with chili flakes) and Post Tox (for over-indulging to come), and 1 or 2 of our Farmer Direct teas – these are really spectacular hand-crafted teas, available in quite affordable quantities.
I will also have a small selection of brewing accessories, and I hope to have a few packages of pumpkin tea, and cranberry spice (if you missed it at Wash U yesterday).
