I stopped by The Tea Gathering for a brief moment and I was happy to see how spotless the shop was and rearranged somewhat making it look a bit bigger. I noticed several new items like tea trays depicting a rooster; and they have a larger selection of honey made from a nearby farm in Methuen, MA. Store had several photos by Goethe artist of Victorian women in the gardens or at leisure, I think they are for sale as well.
The owner Fran seemed rested and less fatigued than when I visited last year in 2011. Overall she seems to have found her final niche; a lasting peaceful effect perhaps. I cannot know the life of this person, surely better than mine. In all the teashop owner seemed restful/youthful and her store seemed bigger and carrying more. Happy times to the folks at the Tea Gathering!
This tea shop carries teas from around the world —Japan, China, Sri Lanka, India and Taiwan; premium teas for their new and loyal following.
The customer’s request is scooped into smaller tins or little bags. The shop also has ceramic, glass or cast iron tea pots, sets, mugs, and tea cozies which fill the shelves on three sides of the shop.
The cozies are made in Windham, NH., and the honey is collected from Simone Farm just down the street from the tea shop.
They offer healthy, serendipitous sipping for mending of woes.
