Fulfilling A Purpose With Tea
It struck me to the point of overwhelm. Seeing so many friends, family, and community members come out to celebrate our Grand Opening of Discover Teas 2 with us truly touched my heart. Who would have thought twenty months ago when opening the Williamsburg location that we would be opening a second shop in Newport News.
I remember opening our first shop and the incredible learning journey it took to simply run day to day systems. Now I’m feeling those growing pains again as we figure the workings of two locations. However, I know that on the other side, the blossoming growth will be something to behold.
We certainly didn’t get to this place on our own. If it weren’t for the support of the community and loyal customers—and all those neglected tea drinkers out there—we wouldn’t be here. It is with sincere gratitude that I say thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Whether we keep expanding or close up shop (which isn't the goal of course), it doesn’t matter. I feel like a huge success to have just made it this far. And as long as so many smiling faces keep coming and going through our doors, Discover Teas is fulfilling its purpose.
