Looking for a place that is welcoming and well stocked with tea.. You have come to the right place if you have discovered the TeaStore@ 53 York Street in the Byward market right in the heart of the city, minutes away from Parliament Hill, and the Rideau Shopping Center. These two ladies are regulars, they bike down on week-ends to enjoy a visit and their favourite tea and baked goodie. During the summer they are able to add the delicious fresh fruit that is abundant in the market stalls nearby. In winter they soak up the warmth inside of the shop, where they get to sit in a sunny area, either at tables or if lucky to get it the small red sofa. Cosy as all get out..!
The shop is now owned by Joshua Savoie, who obviously has done a great job in maintaining the welcoming ambiance of the shop, he is gaining new “regulars” week-days and week-ends. The young hostess that was there when I visited Saturday was very knowledgeable about the teas, and products sold in the shop. Had I had more time, I would have welcomed a lazy visit watching the activities from outside at one of the tables or inside at the big bright window. Perched at the window table =^_^=
Ahhhh and what was I doing there… this charming shop, *teastore* has started to sell the cards I make for the Perfect Liberty, Funky Monkey Boutique. As you know the FMB has a sale only 2, 3 times a year, The cards are available all year, however we are at 1010 Hunt Club (near Airport Parkway)… so that is going west on Hunt Club if you are at Bank, you turn right to go towards Airport Parkway, Riverside etc.
Remember that October 15th. we are having our fall, Funky Monkey Boutique sale, 9 a.m. 1 pm. After that it will be after church on the 21st. and by appointment. We have a lot of Diva jewelry, brand name purses, Xmas village what nots, funky bits and pieces for your Halloween outfits….some crafty items. I will have a few of the scrapbooking/card making extras there, you never know what you will find.
Don’t be disappointed, come early, there is only so much room in the FMB. What is that expression “the early bird gets the worm”…
Look at all the teas, this is just a portion of the tea being offered at the * teastore*, you can follow them on facebook and twitter, their web address is http://www.teastore.ca
Everyone loves a good cuppa tea, there is so much to explore and see on the market. and the new updated Rideau Center.. Shake the shoppers and the big price tags, wander over to the * teastore * 53 York Street, (next door to Lapointe’s) enjoy the brew and the view.
Everyday is a new beginning
