Tea Time with Hale Tea Co.

Tea Time with Hale Tea Co.

Hale Tea Company was brought to Savannah, Georgia by the Hale family in 1989, from London, England where they started a tea shop that dates back to 1872. Meg, a local SCAD graduate, is now the owner and operator of the company and she’s determined to continue its beautiful legacy. No doubt you’ve seen boxes and tins of Hale Tea at a variety of shops in town, and the herbal remedies collection is sold at Hygge.

Meg shared with me a bit about what she’s learned from both her own research and the institutional knowledge passed down to her by the Hale family.  Whether you prefer hot or iced, caffeinated or decaf, we hope you can add ‘enjoyment of tea’ to your regular rituals and self-care to-do list.
