The London Tea Merchant is the retail arm of The London Tea Room, founded in 2007 by our family a few years after we arrived from England.
Growing up in the UK we drank tea all day and every day, but it wasn’t until recent years we realized that there was a whole world of tea which included varieties other than black! The rest is history, as we say. We serve and sell high quality varieties purchased from many fair trade and organic estates. When this is not possible we make sure that the quality is as fine as can be.
Each member of the family has different responsibilities. Jackie has studied hard and long and is now a certified Tea Sommelier with The World Tea Academy and is responsible for the purchase of all teas as well as teaching tea education classes throughout St. Louis. All this in addition to taking care of scheduling and payroll! Pat takes care of the online website and retail merchandise, Alan slogs over the finances and Anna offers her inspiration regarding the future of the business in addition to instore merchandising and afternoon teas.
Whether online or instore, together with our really amazing staff we seek to go where no other tea store has gone before.
