Our story began in hot water. Staring into the caramel colored water while dipping the simple tea bag on a tiny string by its paper tag, all that came to mind was, "There must be more to tea than this. Throughout history, the drinking of fine tea has inspired revolutions, colonial expansions, whole economies. Countries have been founded, fought over and flourished all because of two leaves and a bud. This cannot be the source." And, hence, the journey to TeaLula had begun.
After many years of research, study and a non-stop journey into the world of tea, TeaLula's owners and Certified Tea Specialist, Sheila Duda, and husband Fred Duda opened their doors as a tea lover's urban oasis in March of 2008. Blending brews and knowledge of the finest imported teas and exclusive custom blends, TeaLula features more than 100 unique loose leaf teas from gardens around the globe.
Our exquisite selections, available both online and in our shop, will please both the most discerning enthusiast and the tea-tasting beginner. At our tasting bar, sample away until you find the right brew. Then select from our variety of teapots, infusers and other accouterments to make the perfect "cuppa" at home.
