Nellie’s Tea & Gifts in South Portland is “all about tea”

Nellie’s Tea & Gifts in South Portland is “all about tea”. Named for the British grandmother of owner Marianne Russo, what started as a dream of owning a “little English tea room” has developed into a passion that seeks to celebrate the many cultures of tea. Throughout our 12 years in business, our goal is to help interested community members learn more about this diverse, ages old leaf, to provide a place and atmosphere which celebrates the civility of tea, and to share our passion for learning and tasting. In addition to offering retail tea and related accoutrements and gifts, we frequently host in-house tastings and classes, tea events throughout the community, education to community groups, as well as catered tea parties. We welcome you to stop in for a quiet cup of tea in our casual setting, or can arrange a full tea party by reservation. Marianne is the only tea you enjoy. The truth is, green tea does not have to taste awful! Let us Fri 10 –5; Sat. 10 – 3; other times by appointment. www.nelliestea.com
