Financial District—(December 8, 2016) TWG Tea Salon & Boutique opened their first official North American location and celebrated by throwing a massive grand opening party. The Singaporean-based luxury tea brand, established in 2008, takes over the recently closed Urban Tea Merchant space with original proprietors Tom and Karinna James becoming exclusive TWG Canadian franchise partners and distributors under their VanSing Distribution Group.
The guest of honour, hometown supermodel Coco Rocha (who grew up in Richmond), dashed into the soirée in grand fashion, making a memorable red carpet entrance, and struck many glamorous poses throughout the night.
Modelled after TWG's other worldwide boutiques, the fifty-seat space includes an upgraded retail section, patisserie counter featuring tea-infused savoury treats, and an intimate tea salon.
Their tea collection includes high-quality tea blends in over eight-hundred varieties as the TWG Tea ("The Wellbeing Group") international brand continues its global presence with fifty-six locations in seventeen cities across the world.
