Firepot Nomadic Teas Opens First Tea Bar
Firepot Nomadic Teas opened its first brick-and-mortar concept on 27 April. Located at 2905 12th Avenue S in Nashville, Tennessee, the new tea bar features Firepot’s organic and ethically-sourced teas, as well as grab-and-go drinks crafted by founder Sarah Scarborough.
“I am excited to share the tea lifestyle with Nashville by offering everything from fresh, healthy, hand-crafted tea drinks to some of my favourite teas from around the world. We have an inspiring collection of tea books and a wide selection of tea wares from rare to everyday,” says Scarborough. “Tea leads everyone on a different journey and I am honoured to provide a platform to facilitate that journey for new tea drinkers and connoisseurs alike.”
Offering limited indoor and outdoor seating, Firepot’s new space is a combination of modern and rustic elements with white walls and natural light. Firepot Tea Bar will also feature tea ware, mugs and canisters crafted by local creatives from Salt Ceramics and Handmade Studios. In addition to a tea counter, the location includes a retail component, where Firepot’s entire collection of loose leaf teas, tea sachets, matcha and chai and tea pots, books and wares will be available for purchase.
Aligning with the opening of the Tea Bar, Firepot unveiled its latest collection of teas, the Masters & Pioneers Collection. Each tea in the new elevated line of loose leaf teas is seasonally selected from some of the world’s most innovative tea makers.
Using her knowledge of global cultures and tea traditions, Scarborough has carefully curated the menu of vegan, artisanal tea drinks including a Vegan Matcha Latte made with organic matcha, maple syrup, house-made sprouted nut milk and cardamom; Bowl of Soul, featuring turmeric, fresh ginger, vanilla, cinnamon, house-made nut milk and local honey; and Spring Detox, green iced tea with activated charcoal, fresh pressed lemon and ginger juice, cayenne, and maple syrup. The menu also features a variety of sparkling teas available on tap, as well as traditional and seasonal tea favourites.
In addition to the grab-and-go drinks, light bites will be available for guests to enjoy, including chocolate and matcha Bliss Balls. Like all nut milks on the menu, the energy balls will be made in house and will feature apoptogenic herbs like He Shou Wu and ashwagandha.
Firepot Tea Bar is open Monday through Sunday, from 10am to 6pm.
Firepot Nomadic Teas was founded with the purpose of connecting tea lovers with tea growers and improving the lives of both, and that philosophy that will carry over to the first brick-and-mortar location as well. The company supports organic and ethical trade practices and donates a portion of all sales to ROAR Collaborative, a project founded by Scarborough that supports women leading wildlife conservation efforts in tea origin regions like India and Asia. ROAR provides support for women to allow women to support their families and communities and avoid falling prey to sex trafficking.
