Teavana, translated as ‘Heaven of Tea,’ provides a unique retail experience — part tea bar, part tea emporium, offering fine loose-leaf tea and a variety of tea accessories. Each day, Master Teaologists introduce shoppers to the aromas and flavors of loose leaf tea, while sharing its history, health benefits and how to prepare and serve it. A truly unique look at everything that is tea.

“We are excited to add Teavana to the center court at park place. It complements our other retail choices for our customers and adds another reason to visit Park Place,” said Darcy Shippey, Senior Marketing Manager for Tucson and Park Place Malls.

In addition to brewing accessories, Teavana offers more than 100 varieties of tea, along with tea history from 14 countries. Teavana staff will strive to provide shoppers with the ultimate tea experience, while promoting its health benefits in an interactive and educational environment.”

The high-quality teas range in flavor from traditional estate teas to creative blends using teas, fruits, flowers and herbs, providing the best overall taste.

The Teavana grand opening will take place from 10 a.m. through 9 p.m., Friday, April 1. Throughout the day, experienced and novice tea enthusiasts can enjoy complimentary tea samples and special purchase offers.
