Wellness Wednesday - Shop Local

A couple weeks ago I did a feature on shopping small for the holidays. Today I wanted to share a cute place I've followed on social media for a while and finally visited in person. TEAramisu, also known as The Emperor's Tea, is a cute little shop at 929 E. 4500 S. in the Millcreek area. They have a robust online presence but recently opened the shop where you can purchase a variety of loose leaf teas, tea accessories, and you can stay and enjoy a cup (or pot) of tea or a boba drink. MMMM!!! I snapped a few pics on my phone to share some of the fun goodness you can expect to see when you visit.

The wall of tea! Oh so many amazing varieties to try. Their green tea creme brulee was what got me to finally visit the shop.
The boba was delightful! I had the yummy spiced chai which was great and the boba was nice and soft.
They also sell a variety of Italian treats and drinks.
I am a sucker for cute little goodies. MMMM!
This is some of the seating that's available if you want to pull up a chair and stay a while.
My purchase was this lovely Green Tea Creme Brulee and a new tea strainer thing.
I highly recommend you get in there and check out the amazing options available for the tea lover in your life. I am pretty sure the guy who helped me when I was there was one of the owners. Regardless, he was super nice and very helpful when I had some questions about what to buy. The tea is lovely and I completely expect to go back and enjoy this beautiful space.

Even if you can't shop now follow them on social media and support a local business. Also, if you've never really liked tea in the past I would recommend you get into a legit tea shop and try some loose leaf tea. Loose leaf tea is SO different from the bagged stuff you buy in the store. There are some reasonable options in the store however if that's your only experience you might find you enjoy tea if you try something really fresh. There are so many varieties and when prepared the right way they can be really enjoyable.
