Our History


The business was always a dream of the owner Sue Peterson , who was born into a military family and as a toddler lived in London England and lived in a boarding house in the heart of London. Tea and Crumpets were a daily way of life, were very relaxing and soothing to everyone and this remained embedded in her memories for all of her life. Additionally, she came from a long line of Boston Born and raised tea drinkers as well and all of the females collected tea cups and pots and she was not any different.Sue collected porcelain tea pots, and cups all her life waiting for the opportunity to retire from her fulltime job and open the tea shop. Finally she retired but tragedy struck, her only son passed away and she was unable to make any changes in her life. But then something amazing happened. Her son, Brian, had at a very early age opened and ran a very successful computer shop in Mount Holly in 2002 , years before he had passed. It was called “The Basement Technician” and was opened at 55 High Street but a couple months later moved across the street to 70 High Street. This Very location became available to rent and Sue was able to open the Tea Shop of her dreams at the very location her son had his store twenty year prior ! 
So Dreams do come true and Sue hopes you will drop by and share it with her! ENJOY!
