Bham’s favorite tea company is moving into the Pizitz Food Hall in the next few weeks. Get all the tea puns and sweet details here.
Piper & Leaf Opens Downtown Birmingham Location
If you haven’t yet stopped by the tea company’s stand at Pepper Place or their Lowe’s Mill storefront, you’re in luck (and you need to get out more).
Piper & Leaf has been serving joy and tea at Pepper Place for the last 5 years. This past winter the people at the Pizitz approached P&L to see if they would be interested in an upgrade from their farmers market stand to a permanent installment.
After a difficult attempt to set up shop on First Ave. in Woodlawn, P&L jumped at this chance to more firmly set their roots in the Birmingham community.
“The Pizitz shop is basically like a glorified farmers market tent. This opportunity is really economical for us and has the potential to let Piper & Leaf be apart of something really cool while serving a lot of our fans.”
-Connor, co-owner of Piper & Leaf
Right now they’re just wai-teaing on their last health inspection for the 150 square foot shop before opening. Piper & Leaf’s Pizitz Shop plans to celebrate their soft opening in the next 2 to 3 weeks.
More Special-tea Brews to Come
P&L’s Pizitz shop is still working on finalizing their menu, but they did let me in on a few secrets. They plan to offer a few more options than their normal Pepper Place menu, specifically in the special-tea drink area.
“The Pizitz brings a mix of businesses, customers, and ideas into a common place to connect. Piper & Leaf started with the purpose of creating community and we’re excited to be apart of a place that does that on a daily basis. “
-Connor, Co-owner of Piper & Leaf
While all their normal tea options will be available, they’re also playing around with the idea of on-tap cold brew coffee, pour over, ‘sparkling’ (carbonated) tea, and their ‘frother’ which whips tea and milk together.
We’re already thirs-tea for all of these incredible drinks and can’t wait to stop by their new shop to escape the heat this summer.
