25 Tea Boutique Innovations

From Mobile Tea Trucks to Organic Kombucha Bars

— October 30, 2015 — Lifestyle
These tea boutique innovations range from experiential tea tastings to on-the go retail concepts that are ideal for urban consumers. Standouts include a mobile tea truck by Canadian company David's Tea along with Toronto's very own customizable TeaBOT vending machine. Following in the footsteps of artisanal coffee brewers, tea manufacturers are not only opening elegant tea boutiques but are also reviving cultural tea experiences inspired by ancient traditions.

In addition to elegant retail shops like Berlin's Paper & Tea retail space -- a specialty tea boutique that offers rare blends from around the globe -- other favorites include contemporary Japanese tea houses that teach patrons the history of cultural tea preparation and etiquette.

Furthermore, lavish tea menus are becoming more popular among millennials who crave experiential and memorable dining visits. Some of the most elaborate include a Ferrari-themed tea menu from the the Ritz Carlton in Hong Kong along with the Stafford London's afternoon tea that caters to gentlemanly tastes -- featuring scotch, cigars and smoked meat among other more traditional accoutrements.
