Last Cuppa For Davids Tea

Downtown shoppers: You’ve got 2 weeks to get your specialty teas and accessories.

Davids Tea — or, as they oddly prefer, DAVIDs TEA — will close its Main Street store on April 29.

According to alert “06880” reader Pat Pontoriero, they’re doing well here. However — surprise! — they’re not renewing the lease because of high rent.

Davids plans to diversify around Connecticut. Right now, their only other location in the state is at West Hartford’s Westfarms Mall.

The Westport store — between Brooks Brothers women’s store and Jack Wills — was only the 3rd US outlet for the Canadian-based chain. The first 2 were on Bleecker Street in New York, and Polk Street in San Francisco.

Now there are a few dozen.

But — in 2 weeks — one fewer.
