LEAF began as a small tea shop, when we started, our quest was to bring quality loose-leaf tea to the city in an intimate and bohemian space.
Looking to take themselves off the beaten track, they needed a big versatile place that showed loads of potential, so in late 2008 LEAF Tea Shop and Bar opened on Parliament Street. After a rough ride through stormy recession waters, with no passing trade and a blooming big space to fill, they started to make some amazing progress.
LEAF on Parliament Street started to raft up many accolades and awards, both locally and nationally. They developed a fabulous team and the best regular customers a tea shop could ever dream of. By this point they were hosting club nights, pudding clubs, album launches, vintage markets and much more.
Fast-forward to 2017 and Leaf on Bold Street, situated in a beautiful art deco building, formerly a tea room in the 1920’s, a cinema in the late 20th Century and most recently Microzine clothes shop, has been operating for ten years selling only the finest loose-leaf teas.
