In Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, the New Mexico Tea Company (a retail tea shop) has opened a teashop. The new foodservice element will operate as an integral but separate business.
The New Mexico Tea Company's 150 varieties of tea are available hot at the teashop, and there are three iced tea products available.
The reason behind the teashop according to the NMTC's owner, David Edwards, is that he wanted to promote his business to a wider audience and that he thinks a teashop has more of a buzz to it than a retail shop.
Scones with clotted cream and jam, muffins and fruit kabobs (see photograph above) are also available.
