So excited to be in our new location, even if we don’t yet have regular hours. A slight delay, we know that having our store at 90 Welland Ave will allow us to grow and offer our customers more of what they want – more special events, more educational seminars, food to go with your tea, and more parking. Thank you for your patience while we await our permits and don’t forget you can always call or email your order in and make an appointment to pick up!

Hope everyone is enjoying this hot, dry summer! Certainly perfect weather for iced teas! We’re so happy we introduced the Buddha Leaf bottled iced teas at the beginning of this summer!

WE’RE MOVING!!!  January 2017 will mark the beginning of Gwen’s Teas at 90 Welland Ave, St. Catharines. The new space will offer...

Bad tea shop owner

Posted by on Oct 9, 2015 in Tea Talk | 0 comments

I’ve been horribly neglectful of this site – I’m a bad tea shop owner. To be honest, I hadn’t felt inspired to write for awhile. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working hard to bring you the best teas at the best prices! During the past few months I’ve made contact with a few new suppliers, held our very first Tea & Wine tasting event and rearranged the store to serve take-out teas more efficiently. This year you won’t find Gwen’s Teas offsite as much, but instead, we will be...

What a winter

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 points and maintain the high...
