It all started with a Chinese collectibles store at Place Bonaventure in 1996. For approximately eight years, owners Shirley and Peter sold elegant furniture, traditional tea accessories and other fine wares until “they realized that their true purpose was to infuse life and a contemporary twist into an ancient indulgence through creating a multitude of tea products that reach new heights in quality and innovation.”
Their shared passion led them into the world of tea blending and the opening of their boutique on Montreal’s Sherbrooke Street West in 2004.
Their passion is also their vision: To source the most unique and original tea-related products from around the world, ranging from teapots and infusers to single serve cups and heat insulated travel mugs, perfect for people with busy lives while on the go.
But carefully handpicking each product according to the highest standards of quality wasn’t enough for Peter and Shirley. The owners also became creators. They play a part in the design and modification of each prototype for improvement before it’s tested to ensure it meets clients’ needs. Their tea accessories are an ongoing creative innovation.
