Sunday, May 6th, 2012 the South Granville neighbourhood welcomes the arrival of New York-based Tracy Stern SALONTEA as it sets up its first ever Canadian boutique location at 3010 Granville Street in Vancouver, British Columbia. Not just your average cup of tea, SALONTEA is a sought-after sipping-must for Royals and celebrities such as Oprah and Rihanna, and attracts widespread global attention and demand from as far away as Dubai, Moscow, Guatemala and Cannes.
SALONTEA embraces the rich artistry of tea blending and tasting; fusing it with a unique, modern-day appeal that caught the attention of Vancouver-based Sarah Ambrose after seeing SALONTEA President Tracy Stern on an episode of Bravo Televisions, “Mad Fashion.”
See YouTube video here:
This chance viewing literally changed Ambrose’s life who states that, “she was instantly drawn to Stern’s style, outlook, story, SALONTEA product and concept.” This led to an evening of furious research to learn everything she could about SALONTEA—fuelled by her desire to see a lifelong dream to open a tea shop come to fruition. The following day, Ambrose decided to contact Tracy Stern directly sharing that, “I just went for it and called her up out of the blue to discuss the possibility of expanding SALONTEA into Canada, and found we shared an instant connection.”
That serendipitous conversation took place just three months ago, and since then this hard-working single mother has secured the rights to distribute SALONTEA throughout Canada, left a career in social work and mastered the art of starting a business from her iPhone.
Both Tracy Stern and Sarah Ambrose are excited to bring the special world of SALONTEA (themed tea parties included!) to Vancouver and look forward to introducing people to the extensive selection of teas, accessories and tea beauty care products all part of the SALONTEA line. In addition, Ambrose recognizes the importance of supporting local businesses and artisans alike and will feature locally-sourced, seasonal goods that echo the sentiment embodied by Tracy Stern herself, “Enjoy Life. Drink Tea. Celebrate Often.”
Not your traditional tea boutique, SALONTEA’s Vancouver location will offer a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere to patrons in search of a unique tea experience where they can connect, think, write and celebrate. In addition to more than a dozen tempting, estate blended teas, customers can partake in daily tea service while perusing a selection of baked offerings, sweets and other tea-worthy treats, courtesy of neighbour Meinhardt Fine Foods, as they take in the full spectrum of items the boutique will feature. Also available at the boutique: signed-copies of Tracy Stern’s popular book entitled Tea Party: 20 Themed Tea Parties with Recipes for Every Occasion, from Fabulous Showers to Intimate Gatherings.
Join Tracy Stern SALONTEA for their official Canadian launch and Grand Opening Celebration on Sunday, May 6th, 2012 from 10am – 5pm.
