After a six-year run as one of Brampton’s most popular cafes, T By Daniel announced Thursday that the company will be closing its doors for good at its Bramalea City Centre location.

Co-owners Daniel and Renata Lewis made the announcement on social media that the store will be closing its physical location in favour of an online store, which they plan to put more time and effort into growing.

“To accommodate our growing family and to tackle a new adventure, we will be closing our location in Bramalea City Centre,” the two said on Instagram.

“There are many factors that have contributed to our decision, but the biggest is to be more present in the lives of our children, and the realities of a changing shift in retail.”

T By Daniel opened up in 2013 on Main Street in downtown Brampton and has always been known for its stellar customer service and signature tea the Lion Chai.

The T By Daniel team took things to a new level back in 2017 when they served tea to the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles. They developed a custom tea just for him that was aptly named ‘Polo With the Prince’.

Daniel and Renata say having an online store will allow them to grow their customer base beyond Brampton to the rest of Canada, and hopefully the world.

“Thank you for your tremendous support over the years. We could have never done anything that we’ve done, or shared the incredible experiences that we’ve had without you.”

🎆🎆🎆BREAKING NEWS🎆🎆🎆 Dearest friends, followers, fans and fellow tea drinkers. It’s with great excitement that we share with you a heartfelt update on the new direction of T By Daniel. After almost 6 years of operating our tea shop (5 years in Downtown Brampton, and just over a year in Bramalea City Centre) we have decided that it is time for a change. To accommodate our growing family and to tackle a new adventure, we will be closing our location in Bramalea City Centre. There are many factors that have contributed to our decision, but the biggest is to be more present in the lives of our children, and the realities of a changing shift in retail. We want to translate our passion for tea and customer service towards our online store, an exciting opportunity that opens T By Daniel not only to Brampton, but to all of Canada and the rest of the world! You will still be able to find us at markets and events, and we will also be adding a new service to our business- afternoon tea parties! The journey doesn’t end here- in fact, it has just begun! Thank you for your tremendous support over the years. We could have never done anything that we’ve done, or shared the incredible experiences that we’ve had without you. From opening our first store, to attending our cheesy parties, to helping us win awards, and giving us amazing reviews, and of course the greatest experience any teashop owner could ever dream of- serving the Royal Family, none of this would be possible without your support throughout all these years. We invite you to the next chapter of T By Daniel. Though this is a new direction, we are so excited to continue to share this journey with you. We still need all your love and support to continue to move our tea adventure to the next phase. Join us on May 31st- for our grand closing. The end of an era, but the beginning of a fresh chapter! Details will follow! Tag a friend and help us spread the word about this update! <3 #tbydaniel #tea #tealovers #change #new adventure #drinktea #love #family #business #entrerpreneurship #teatime #supportlocal #newchapter #growth #teastagram #toronto #brampton #mississauga
