New Tea Room Opens in Stratford
Kasia Lindeberg dreamed of running an herbal tea shop that empowered the community with a healing cup of warm tea. Her vision became a reality with the recent opening of Open Door Tea in Stratford.
Lindeberg, Open Door Tea’s owner and master of teas, has a master of science in human nutrition. In addition to teaching patrons about the benefits of different teas, Lindeberg will hold a monthly herb club that will focus on topics such as utilizing herbs in the culinary arts and growing your own herb garden. Margi Montanero is a photographer and entrepreneur who created and ran Cozy Corners, a Christian bookstore and gift shop in Monroe, for nine years. She will be exhibiting the talents of new local artists at Open Door Tea. In addition to being the tea room’s baker, Tammy Galt will be leading a variety of seasonal craft workshops, including winter wreath making.
Open Door Tea offers a wide array of organic drinks and snacks. While the focus is on teas, they also serve coffee, juices, smoothies, fresh pastries, sandwiches, salads and other small delicacies. All of the teas are available for purchase in bulk at the store in addition to pre-packaged teas in 100 gram bags offered online. There are gluten-free and vegetarians options available as well. The vast majority of their products and ingredients are organic. Open Door Tea will also host seminars, workshops and support groups.
Open Door Tea’s hours are Tuesday-Friday from 8am-5pm and Saturday from 9am-5pm.
