Lexington, KY (October 22, 2012) - A little over three years ago Lexington did not realize that it was missing something pretty cool, something that many big US cities were picking up on. Danielle and Miller Montague knew what that was and so with a passion for great tea and the knowledge that tea continues to gain popularity in the US, they opened Lexington’s only tea dedicated retail shop on November 15, 2009.
Opening a business let alone a tea shop during the recession was a bit scary but knowing that loose leaf tea is an affordable luxury made it a lot easier. Tea is considered to be economical, healthful and more flavorful. The business started with 50 but now carries anywhere from 95-105 teas depending on the season. They also carry the industries best and new brewing systems.
Some valued customers have commented:
John Meigooni: The tea is the 2nd most important thing that MonTea serves. An educational, calm experience is what I look for, and the owners offer that for free...I get to try teas that are literally impossible to get anywhere else in town. Plus their son and dog are awesome
Natalie Voss: I'm so grateful for MonTea's wide selection! My mother loves tea and before I discovered the store I never knew what to get her for her birthday. Now I can bring her a whole new sampler every year.
Margaret Brown-Wells: I love trying new teas and appreciate the expertise of The Montague’s in helping me choose just the right teas to try. Whether for iced or hot, fruity or spiced tea they are always able to help me find exactly what I am looking for.
MonTea is located at 812 Euclid Avenue in the great neighborhood of Chevy Chase. For more information call (859) 268-8327(teas).
