Whither goest TeaGschwendner, a high end retailer of rare and fancy teas. Barely six months old, the store is now marked “closed for renovations.” When we called the Chicago store, they said the New York shop had sent all its tea to them and the store wasn’t apparently going to reopen. “Renovation” indeed.
Ahh, TeaGschwendner, we hardly knew ye. And we never really knew how to pronounce yer name. Luckily, fans can still buy the company’s teas at tgtea.com. Perhaps the Upper West Side is more of a coffee kind of town?
