Local Tea is Moving

Local Tea is Moving.  This is oftentimes a sign that is not a welcome one, but in our case, it brings great news! We are not only moving but moving to larger premises!!

Within the next month, we move our tea tasting room at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens from within the Christy Payne Mansion to the Carriage House, previously known as Wild Things. Payne Mansion at Selby Gardens, former home of Local Tea Company

The poisonous dart frogs have found a new home, and we have embarked on a cleaning and decorating spree. We will be refurbishing and transforming our new location into a premium home befitting our premium loose teas!

How exciting!!!

The Payne Mansion allowed us to grow so much within the beautiful environs. We will miss the mansion so much (especially the bathroom!!) but can not wait for all the new and exciting tea-things we have planned.

You will hear more about our tea activities at Selby Gardens, along with a few pictures.  Local Tea is moving, but not that far!

Local Tea Company

Local Tea Company promotes local products and services, protects local environments, and celebrates local treasures. Great things start at the local level.  Therefore, it is no surprise our motto is “Sip Locally.”

Three times more money is injected into the local economy when people buy from local businesses rather than national chains.  Local businesses put their money back into the local economy.  Above all, both employees and vendors contribute to a cycle of support that strengthens a community.  Sip Locally.

Our locally inspired, loose leaf teas celebrate Sarasota.  For example, our most popular tea, Selby Select, is inspired by Marie Selby Botanical Gardens.  In addition, Selby was our home base from 2007 until 2016.  We have created teas celebrating other parts of Selby Gardens, including our Little Monkey Fruit Tea and our Secret Garden Green Tea.

Other locally inspired loose leaf teas include…

We created a tea for the Edison Ford Winter Estates in Fort Meyers.  You will love the sweetness of our Edison Ford Fruit Tea.  Local Tea Company organized the Celebrating Sarasota Collection of Teas.  We are working on more clever creations of loose leaf tea blends.

Join us in practicing “Sip Locally” throughout our community.  We love Sarasota, and we love sharing our community with the many visitors we meet every day.  In conclusion, we appreciate all the support, and we will continue working hard to contribute to our local community.
