Congratulations to the TeaSource, which opened its doors five years ago (they’ve had an online store a couple years longer). I can’t believe the time has gone by so fast.

Once upon a time, Twin Cities residents were hard pressed to fine quality specialty tea in town. One shop opened up in Minneapolis, but … well, they had attitude problems. Buying tea there just didn’t feel right. Just about when I’d given up, Bill Waddington opened up the TeaSource more or less in my neighborhood. I was thrilled. The selection and quality of their teas is really quite impressive, and the staff most friendly. I heartily recommend it.

And yes, Splendid Table fans, that Bill Waddington, the Splendid Table’s tea maven.

Heh. I’m sure he’d be amused to know that I referred to him as that Bill Waddington.
