We are very excited to announce that Phoenix Tea has found a place for our shop, and we will be open to the public very soon! The store is located on 152nd Street in Burien, Washington, in a nice little shopping district. Our neighbors are restaurants, retail shops, yoga studios, a wine bar, a bakery, a gallery, and within the month, a specialty chocolatier. We are less than 30 minutes south of Seattle, easy to get to, easy to find.
This particular space was formerly a consignment clothing store, and I pass by it nearly every day. I’d been eying it as a possible location for the tea store from the day that I envisioned having a tea store, more than a year ago, so as soon as I saw the available sign in the window I contacted the landlord. Things moved phenomenally quickly, and just a few days after we looked at the space, Brett and I signed the lease and picked up the keys.
We have a little bit of modification to do – primarily painting and installing fixtures, but soon we will be open for business. We will be primarily a retail shop, but we will have a couple of tables where customers can sit and drink tea, and we will be able to sell cups of brewed teas to go. Our primary goal is to create a comfortable, wonderful store where people can come in, learn, explore, and drink tea with us to discover the teas they really love.
Come in and see us!
