Chicago Teahouse

Chicago Teahouse was originally born through the partnership between Ms. Agnieszka & TeeGschwendner, who decided that franchising in the USA was too difficult for legal reasons. Ms. Agnieszka of Tea & Beyond LLC, was a licensed partner of TeeGschwendner GMbH and originally carried only their tea but now they are sourcing teas from few different suppliers as well as directly from tea gardens. The name change and separation happened in 2022.

TeaTiff Picks: Shangri La. The flavors of white tea have fancied my palate as of late. This fuzzy tea brews up nicely on it’s own and iced. Though I do suggest the gong fu style of brewing as it will draw out more of the subtle notes.
