What a winter

Posted by on Mar 4, 2014

Wow. I know I’m not alone in wishing this winter goodbye! Other than consuming record amounts of tea, I’ve used this time to reflect on Gwen’s Teas and the direction I see the store heading. If you’ve been in lately, you’ll notice that I’m carrying more Canadian-made products. Going forward I hope to carry many more Canadian products as supporting local businesses and Canadian companies is very important to me. Of course, I will continue to carry products at reasonable price...

Posted by on Oct 19, 2013

One year ago today I embarked on this journey into the world of tea. In many ways, it seems like just yesterday I was frantically trying to learn everything about tea and run a business and ¬†maintain my cheery disposition for my customers, oh wait, that WAS yesterday! If you’ve been in the store lately you know much has changed in a year! The storefront renovations are ongoing but I hope to have everything settled by November (except for the dust, that will take much longer). Looking back over the year,...

Back to school!

As September approaches (far too rapidly), we’ve been gearing up for back to school here at Gwen’s Teas. Next Tuesday and Wednesday (September 3 & 4) ¬†we will be at Brock Orientation for Vendor Days – if you are a Brock student or faculty stop by and say hi! There will be special promotions and samples. The downtown store will remain open for regular hours those two days. I too will be returning to school in September – to take the Tea Sommelier program at George Brown College. It...
