The Story Behind The Name
Why are we called Diana's Papillion tea shop?
Diana's Papillion Tea Shop was originally named The Papillion Tea Shop by the owner and founder, Diana Connolly, who opened the shop on April 16, 2016. Diana's goal was to provide excellent quality loose leaf teas and accessories to the community. Diana loved the tea shop and considered it her second home and her customers, her friends. Sadly, Diana passed away from cancer on April 8, 2017. The second owner was an employee at the time and purchased the shop from Diana's husband. The shop then was renamed Diana's Papillion Tea Shop in honor of Diana. Angie and Tim were working at at a chain Tea Shop which was closing down. On the lookout for a new place to enjoy tea, they found Diana's Papillion Tea Shop. This is how they both started volunteering at her shop. In May 1st, 2021 they officially bought the shop and became the new owners. Both the new owners hope to keep Diana's dream alive.
Tim & Angie found out about Diana's love for the Japanese culture as her family was stationed there when her husband served in the military. As they both love the Japanese culture too, they hope to make the Tea Shop just like Diana would have like. They hope to bring in the appreciation for the Japanese culture into the shop..
Tim & Angie
Continuing the Dream
Tim & Angie discovered their love of loose leaf tea when they found a tea store in their local mall. When the company was about to shut down they decided to work until it was gone. While working at this store they decided to look for another local tea shop. This is how they found out about Diana's Papillion Tea Shop. Both were very happy to eventually be able to take over ownership as they both love the tea and working with people. It has been a dream of Angie to have her own shop. Both hope to honor Diana's dream and help it grow even more.
