Albuquerque’s Premier Tea Company
Hadley’s Tea has been the place to find high-quality tea in Albuquerque for more than 12 years. And it all started with one woman’s quest for really good tea in the desert…
How Hadley’s Tea Began
Founder of Hadley’s Tea, Linda Butler, hails from English roots. Although removed from Merry Old England for a number of generations, the British love of tea persisted in her family. However, Linda grew frustrated at her inability to find really good tea in Albuquerque. Certain that she was not the only choosy tea lover in the city, Linda decided to remedy the problem by opening a store that offered quality tea…and everything else that tea lovers need to brew the perfect cup at home.
Making the Grade for Hadley’s Tea
Hadley’s Tea carries only the finest teas. Every year, Linda attends the World Tea Expo, an exposition exclusively for tea retailers where they can meet and taste the teas of growers from around the world. It is from this massive selection of teas that Linda personally selects the products that Hadley’s Tea will carry.
The Future of Hadley’s Tea
Hadley’s Tea is nestled in the middle of Market Square shopping center on Jefferson Street NE since its opening in 2003. This cozy location houses a deli that offers delicious salads, sandwiches and a selection of artisan chocolates. From time to time, Hadley’s Tea hosts events, such as book signings and school events.
