The Northern Lights Tea Company was founded in the summer of 2006.  We started our retail business in 2007 as a "shop in shop" in Danish Bohemia, a beautiful gift shop on Grand Avenue in St. Paul, Minnesota. Since then, we have enjoyed supplying our growing customer base with the finest teas from all around the world. 


In May 2008, our tiny location was no longer able to grow with us and we moved into our present spot in the Downtown Minneapolis Skyway System the following September. With over 180 of the finest teas from Asia to South America and a special emphasis on Japanese teas, you will surely find a favorite. At The Northern Lights Tea Company, we are committed to reducing our carbon foot print -- our search for the best tasting organic and fair trade teas is never ending and our delicious collection grows and grows. We also have a great selection of tea pots, infusers, mugs, kettles and other tea paraphernalia.

Encouraged by our loyal customers, we are now taking our first steps in e-commerce.

We welcome our existing and new customers to The Northern Lights Tea Company online.


Our promise is to give you the best customer service and to offer you a wide variety of fine tasting teas  at a reasonable price.


Many thanks for visiting our shop in the Minneapolis Skyway and on the Web.

Great tea works wonders. The delicious tastes and health benefits make tea a wonderful beverage - much better than the unhealthy alternatives. The Teavana dream began with an idea that people would enjoy fresh, high-quality tea in a place that was part Tea Bar, part Tea Emporium. We wanted to introduce people to the aromas, textures, and beneficial qualities of loose leaf teas while enlightening them with the history and variety of teas available. And this is how Teavana was born.
As our name implies, Teavana's goal is to be a heaven of tea and to offer our customers the healthy lifestyle and wonderful tastes of tea. This unique name is meant to describe the experience each customer has with our tea and our staff.
After considerable research, only those teas with rich flavors and superior health benefits are selected for Teavana. We opened our first tea emporium in Atlanta, Georgia. Since then we have opened over 200 Teavana locations throughout the US and Mexico.
