In our 6th year of business, we have a vast selection of teas and tea paraphernalia such as cups, saucers, teapots and strainers.
We also carry colourful cotton tablecloths, tea towels, tea cozies, coffee mugs and gift-ware. The shop owners, Karen and Yolanda are happy to special order anything you do not see here.
Oh! And we also carry some fabulous chocolate.
Why do we call ourselves Chari-teas?
To date, we’ve sent more than $14,000$ – mostly to Colombia (a few hundred dollars has gone to China) and over $3,300 has gone to local charities, schools and causes. In addition, many local public schools have used our program to raise funds for their needs. ALL OF THIS IS BECAUSE OF ALL OF YOU.
As many of you know, Yolanda has a Foundation in Colombia that supports AIDs families. A huge thank you goes to Yolanda’s associate Diego, who administers all the work there – out of the goodness of his heart – which enables ALL funds to go directly to those who need help, with the exception of the small cost to actually send the money there. (We have all the receipts if you’d like to see them).
So, come to downtown Duncan, wander the streets, view the totems and pop in to see us across from City Hall at # 101 – 211 Craig Street, or give us a call at (250) 597-0880.
