Tea House Founders and Family

The Journey Begins

The Journey Begins

Many years ago, Arianna Niccola Smith and her closest friends discovered a magical place for tea. They were captivated by the experience and it soon became their favorite spot for special occasions. Arianna then shared this delightful experience with her mother Claudia and sisters Shannon and Lisa, together enjoying the haven for quiet conversations, where afternoons slipped away unnoticed.

The concept of tea resonated so deeply with Claudia and her daughters that they began dreaming of opening their own tea house. However, they needed to convince Allan, the father and husband, who initially had no interest in the idea. Reluctantly, he was dragged along and soon realized the merits and uniqueness of the tea concept.

The Niccola family quickly recognized the significance of creating a place where people could forge meaningful relationships. They envisioned a special, serene setting where guests could enjoy each other's company. In today's stress-filled society, such a place would be truly exceptional, relevant, and healing.

The journey continued as the family embarked on finding the perfect location with the support of numerous family members and friends. Today, we stand proudly, staying true to our original mission statement: "Building relationships, one cup at a time…"

Though times have changed and years have passed, the dream lives on through Damian, the Niccola's grandson, who has been involved from the very beginning. His heartfelt desire remains the same for every guest who enters our doors – that your time with us rejuvenates your soul, nurtures your relationships with friends and loved ones, and leaves you with cherished memories to treasure forever.

We thank you for joining us and warmly welcome you to our home.
