Orange Pekoe is more than just a tearoom. It has become a gathering place for the local community where everyone knows they will be welcomed and cared for. It is a place for customers to sit alone and read, for mothers with small children in pushchairs, for work mates who need a break from their desks, and for families and groups of friends who want to catch up on each other’s news. It is an extension of their living room—safe, welcoming, comfortable, and relaxed. It encompasses the spirit of tea and creates a sense of kindness and inclusion for every visitor who steps through the door. When Marianna fulfills her hopes to open a second shop, her special Orange Pekoe blend of warmth and friendship is sure to attract more tea lovers who will appreciate her gentle touch.
