New Book and Tea Shop Holds Grand Opening

Sep 24, 2018

After more than a year of serving up tea pop-up style at events like Friday on the Green and ArtsGoggle, and via on-tap partnerships like the one with HopFusion Ale Works, Tina and Todd Howard finally opened the doors of Leaves Book & Tea Shop.

Leaves offers more than 40 different teas for you to try, both hot and iced, plus sparkling tea, and a well-curated selection of books organized by theme throughout the shop. If you're hungry, Meyer and Sage box lunches are available, as well as baked goods from Stir Crazy and Three Danes Baking Co. The serene, modern space is located in the new Dickson-Jenkins development at 120 St. Louis Avenue.

The opening of Leaves was a long-awaited day for everyone in the neighborhood. In addition, local media was also ready to celebrate. Leaves was featured in the Star-Telegram, on WFAA, Good Morning Texas, and the Dallas Morning News.
