Brampton’s little tea shop that could, T By Daniel, made headlines after being tasked with no simple feat: serving tea to Charles, Prince of Wales. This is the guy that is the next King of England!
The dynamic duo Renata and Daniel Lewis, co-owners of T By Daniel, had the opportunity to personally serve tea at CFB Trenton on June 30 to Prince Charles and his wife Camilla Parker Bowles, Duchess of Cornwall.
The Lewises created a special blend just for this occasion: ‘Polo with the Prince’. It’s a black Ceylon tea blend with hints of lemon and strawberry.
“[Prince Charles] said the tea was absolutely brilliant,” says Daniel Lewis. “He also asked one of his assistants to get the recipe from us as he would love to take [it] with him back home for everyone to enjoy.”
Daniel adds, with his signature enthusiasm, “Our experience was extremely fairy tale-like, mixed with honour and joy and nerves. Every emotion ran through our bodies. His Royal Highness is down to earth and polite however the protocol that surrounds him is what makes you so nervous. Everything has to be set in order down to the T, literally!”
Naturally, everyone wants to try the tea the Prince enjoyed so much and the shop has received tons of messages requesting it. ‘Polo with the Prince’ will be available in the T by Daniel store at 46 Main Street as well as the online store.
