Same staff...same location...same TeaGschwendner teas plus a variety of new high quality tea companies, expanded accessory lines, and gourmet chocolates have been added as well as other tea related items. Tin Roof Teas is located in Cameron Village, one of the oldest shopping centers in North Carolina, just up from Bailey's Fine Jewelry store. Where else can one buy a nice gift for less than $10 that not only tastes good but is good for the recipient? Choose from teas like Green Coconut, Black Mango, Earl Grey Cream, or Marzipan. This is the largest tea shop in the Carolinas with over 250 teas in stock. Accessories are available but they are not the main focus...just a convenience. Gourmet truffles were stocked this week, and the Moravian Sugar Cookies are almost sold out. (Of course, they will order more). They even have a tea-to-go bar and you can sample any of the teas.
In all fairness, I must disclose a personal interest in Tin Roof Teas...my sons own it. I am asking for your support; times are hard for all local businesses. As you compile your holiday list, consider a gift of a small bag of tea & tea strainer or for that hard to please person who has everything a few bags of green tea, a pretty tea cup or pot, and a jar of Savannah Bee Honey. The staff will create a basket with your choices or you can buy a gift certificate. Think of holiday parties...instead of another bottle of wine...a gift of tea. Tea classes are offered twice per month, and don't even think about a stuffy old tea shop; this one is very European. The staff knows the teas and will work with you as your consultant; they are not pushy.
Don't live in Raleigh, NC???? They ship! Their new website www.TinRoofTeas.com will be active within the next two weeks so save the site. Want to learn about teas but can't attend the classes...follow my blog
****Top two plates contain tea bag leaves from the grocery store vs fine tea leaves available in the shop. Green tea leaves on the right are still green after four brewings and black tea on the left still shows chunks of mango.
