Loose Leaves Southampton
Possibly the best tea shopping experience I've ever had....and I love my teas!
This past weekend was our annual Sauble Beach Girls Only getaway. Normally we spend most of our time hanging on the beach, but this weekend was off and on rainy, mostly on and we decided to explore the area a bit.
In nearby Southampton one of the many shops that caught our eye was Loose Leaves, because to a lady we are all tea lovers, and this particular shop did not disappoint.
They had every type of tea imaginable and then some!
Even the decor reflected the shop owner's love for tea! How cute is this!
We were very fortunate that the owner/founder of Loose Leaves was in the shop that day and we got to speak with her. This woman knows her teas, and I learned more about tea and how to brew various types correctly within 10 minutes of speaking with her than I have learned in the last 3 decades of visiting other tea shops. We also learned how after 20 + years in the rat race she chucked it all in to start Loose Leaves and pursue what she loved full-time.
The whole experience was wonderful and inspiring. Girl Power!
Naturally, we all bought a little something to bring home with us.
Loose Leaves also does organic fair trade coffee. Mmmmm coffee.......
If you are a tea lover and find yourself up in the Bruce Peninsula area its worth driving out to the shop. They are located in Southampton at 178 High Street (which is like the main strip) and you can read more about them via Facebook by clicking here.
Thanks Loose Leaves for helping to brighten up a rainy Saturday afternoon.
