6 Stops Tea Enthusiasts Will Enjoy Making in the Townships

April 2020. Note that those enterprises can't welcome you actually but you can place your order online or by calling them.



The founder (the boutique opened in 2011) and co-owner, Anne Ricard, is a certified tea sommelier and has therefore all the knowledge needed to suggest personalized blends and perfect pairings with different dishes. Here again, the wide selection of teas is very impressive. The lavender Earl Grey is especially tempting!
