Our Story - 2023
A passion for tea.
It all started with a dream - a dream of running an herbal tea shop that empowers the community with a healing cup of warm tea.
One day, at Nature's Way Health Foods, Kasia ran into a woman named Margi. Little did she know that this was the person who would be the catalyst to turn that vision into a reality. During their conversation about herbs and their health benefits, Margi saw Kasia's passion and shared her fervor for expanding peoples' knowledge of tea. With much guidance and mentorship from friends and family, Kasia embarked on her entrepreneurial venture and Open Door Tea was born, September 2016.
With passion behind the wheel, countless hours of dedication, and the collaboration and expertise of hundreds of people, Kasia's vision has become more than just an idea - it has been transformed into a very real community where all can come and live, learn, and love.
The name for our tea shop
“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.”
— Revelation 3:20
The name for our tea shop came as an inspiration from this bible verse. We are an open door for all to enter and relax away from the noise of everyday life. A community of mothers and sons, old friends and new, a place to share stories and laugh and sip tea.
