Tiffany Hines, visionary owner of Le Gouter, plans to ultimately open a full high end afternoon tea lounge. From her passion and love for the afternoon tea experience from high end hotels around the world, Le Gouter was created in March of 2016.
Ms. Hines has traveled the world, experiencing afternoon tea in Hong Kong, Paris, London, and many cities in the United States. Her understanding of the afternoon high tea experience has led her to create Le Gouter’s vision of bringing this unique experience to the public. Enjoying tea with small bites while socializing with friends, having a business meeting, or enjoying some peace and quiet alone are all events that Le Gouter plans to satisfy.
Already providing specialty blended iced and hot teas along with mini pastries via the local Atlanta farmer’s markets, Le Gouter has gained support with the local’s who are demanding a store. With comments such as, “Where is your store?” and “I would love to be able to sit and enjoy a cup of tea and pastries in this location,” Le Gouter plans to fill this niche in the bustling Atlanta marketplace.
The initial undertaking of creating a full high end tea lounge will begin with the opening of a pop up store for the upcoming holiday season in high end retail spaces. Using this strategic location, Le Gouter plans to use this pop up store to test the popularity of a full high end afternoon tea lounge.
With initial lease agreements and construction plans underway, Le Gouter plans to be up and running by December. All of the funds raised will be used for the build out of the space and initial inventory.
Hines’ vast experience in project management for the last 24 years has led her to launch Le Gouter for all to enjoy.
