Entering this shop is an experience in itself with fruity scents striking you straight away, dim lights making you feel at home and rows of beautiful tins packed with carefully chosen blends of tea which leave you stunned and curious. A bag of their most popular blend “Blend of South” is a superb buy and a great give-away!
The owner Vernon Mauris opened this boutique in 1978 and it’s located on “the hump” at Hornsgatan, in the oldest part of Södermalm. Vernon’s passion and profession is tea; he answers all your questions with a big smile.
If you’re a tea enthusiast this will become your new favorite spot. If you don’t drink tea you will definitely start, I’m sure Mr. Vernon will find something just for you. But beware, after visiting you might get addicted. There’s something about this place, a pleasant mix of nostalgia, hospitality and exquisiteness.
Their website is great as well. You can get the tea shipped to your place.
