About the Owner – Sheetal “Sia” Patel

Have you ever found yourself feeling like you live in a reoccurring loop?  Driving the same route to and from work, school, or any other place you’re “needed” everyday?  

I stumbled upon Tea & Teacups during a juncture in my life that proved not only fateful but also fortuitous. I was at a point in my life where I was ready to exit the exhausting loop I was committed to, but I wasn’t sure where to even start. The opportunity to own and run the tearoom presented itself on a very normal day. As it turns out, my normal day of a little retail therapy with my mother in law was going to be the day that changed the direction of my life forever. After shopping for a while, we managed to end up at the tearoom for a complimentary afternoon tea, and the rest they say, is history.    While at the tearoom, I had the pleasure of meeting Dolly Shewa, who was instrumental in keeping the tearoom in business just three short years ago.  She immediately recognized my passion and gave me the courage and opportunity to take a chance on myself.

 

Before Tea & Teacups this was me.  I was caught between a job and world of responsibility that seemed to fulfill others.  I found myself living a life of quiet desperation on autopilot.  I knew there was more out there and a better way to fulfill my sense of purpose and bring joy not only to myself but also to others.   My true passion has always been serving others with brilliant meals presented with attention given to the most intricate details.  Seeing the joyful expressions on the faces I love from the presentation or first bite of a meal is something truly magical. We are all capable of great things and we are all endowed with true talents.  Like so many others, I was held back by fear of failure and had a hard time taking a chance on myself.  

 

My name Sheetal “Sia” Patel.  I am passionate about my life, my family, and my customers.  I am living outside of my comfort zone, and focusing my energy on things that make me happy.  My days are filled with joy and confidence, faces and names (new and old), and purpose.  My Tearoom is deliberate, it is a staple in the community, and it is a place for people to escape and unplug.  My goal is to serve your soul with a menu of handcrafted tea and food items.  Here is where we share joy, comfort, and peace and allow people to escape their own life-loops. Tea and Teacups is more than just a tea break, it’s enjoying life the fullest one cup at a time and learning to live life on my own terms, with joy, deliberate action and passion.
