A colleague and I are considering opening a tea room in our hometown. I have a passion for tea and she has a passion to own her own business! We have been to many tea rooms in our state of Oregon, and we love them all dearly. But I cannot ignore that tea rooms generally cater to an older crowd. And a business that doesn't change with time is doomed to failure. What we're aiming for is a more contemporary setting, but not completely devoid of the traditional English charms. We want it to be warm and cozy, without being stuffy and extravagant.
As tea lovers I see you all as excellent resources for insight! We want to hear what you have to say! What brands of tea do you prefer? What do you like to see from a tea room vs. what do you don't like? What foods do you look forward to the most? And anything else you think we should know!
We're eager to hear your opinions! Cheers ~
