American Tea & Spice Shop previously Tea2Go, was renovated for the CNBC reality show “The Profit,” which is hosted by Marcus Lemonis, on July 31 and opened again on August 31. The renovation added new furniture to make the building feel more comfortable and they also added more tea flavors to provide a bigger variety of options to choose from.

I have never felt more encouraged to buy iced tea.

 

Walking into American Tea and Spice, the tea shop that replaced Tea2Go on Denton Tap Road, I was greeted by signs reading “Where there is tea there is hope,” painted around the shop.

 

After drinking their tea, I actually did believe that the pomegranate mojito green tea I purchased might get me through the next few hours of homework.

 

Despite having its customer base of student and church study groups before and after school, Tea2Go was having financial problems.

 

After applying for help by CNBC’s reality show “The Profit”, hosted by Marcus Lemonis, Coppell officially became the home of the very first American Tea and Spice Shop for the franchise.

 

A sweet, good-natured greeting by an employee meets every customer as they walk through the door, where they were not only tempted to buy a product, but stay and enjoy the home style surroundings and smells.

 

The new shop has many new features, such as the wall with products like infusers, cups and cookbooks, as well as new flavors.

 

These additions transformed the entire aesthetic of the store. The new management took away all but classic sweet and coconut tea; flavors such as “Keys to My Heart,” “Summertime Sorbet,” “Fireside Song,” and even a créme brulee flavor named “The Custard Stand” are now available. With the increase in character, their prices have increased as well.

 

For me, paying $2.75 for a 24-ounce tea was not an easy transition when, previously, the price capped at $1.75 for the same size. However, the increase in price does reflect the newly gentrified store front.

 

From the new lounge, the fresh fruit stand and the motivational messages throughout, the modern renovations in American Tea and Spice Shop have created a new, trendy destination that tea lovers and study groups alike can appreciate.
