TeBella Tea Company is one of the most celebrated local businesses in the Tampa Bay region. Its presence at Station House elevates the co-work space as the perfect hub to get work done and unwind with your favorite people. This fall, TeBella will open a new brick-and-mortar location in the EDGE District at 1445 Central Avenue.

The expanded space will feature TeBella’s full tea collection of over 100 teas, seating, and plenty of room for classes and events. This will situate the concept right next door to the celebrate Brooklyn South Deli and Gracie Pasta and Provisions.

TeBella bringing afternoon tea service to the EDGE District

In addition to offering the best damn tea in town, its in-store events could include proper afternoon tea experiences.

Jessica Dwyer, a Commercial Property Specialist with Barkett Realty, secured this location for TeBella, and amplified our excitement for its debut in the St. Pete Supper Club.

Abigail StClair founded TeBella Tea Company more than 10 years ago with a flagship location on Davis Island in Tampa.

“TeBella Tea has grown from one small shop to four locations in three cities and a thriving wholesale business,” writes StClair in her company’s mission statement. “We are proud to supply tea to over 140 cafes, restaurants, and hotels nationwide.”

A pocket of happiness in the Tampa Bay region

Why open TeBella in Tampa Bay?

“To bring that love of tea to other people, and teach them about the complexities and nuances of loose leaf tea, has been a dream,” writes StClair. “I couldn’t imagine my life unfolding in any other way that would be as fulfilling as this one.”

This little pocket of happiness will be a welcome addition to the thriving EDGE District.

Keep up with TeBella by following the concept on Facebook and Instagram.
