Tea for Two!

Friends, partners, colleagues, sisters amd brothers, kids & parents (or grandparents) come together for an interactive tea experience




When you arrive at the shop, you know you have come to the right place. Warm, welcoming, and unexpectedly, a haven, a moment to pause and relax. If you are new to drinking fine, loose leaf tea, it's an easy introduction. If tea is already in your life, you can try something new.  

If you are looking for an experience that can be healing, restorative, even life-changing, we welcome you for a bowl of tea.


The shop name, Leaves in a Bowl, is a reminder of the first ways tea was consumed in ancient China. At its heart, a practice of drinking tea from a bowl connects us to tea, to nature and ultimately to ourselves.


Slowing down, bringing more awareness to the senses - - this simple way of drinking tea can actually be quite profound. I look forward to sharing a bowl of tea with you starting October 15, 2024
