A new future is brewing for Elden Street Tea Shop, as the local business sheds its address of more than six years and moves from Herndon to Reston.

The business expected to open at Lake Anne Plaza in the spring.

Rachel Eisenfeld, co-owner of the business, said the tea shop outgrew its current location, especially for tea party events, with more local tea enthusiasts visiting more regularly after the pandemic.

“We would have liked to stay in our current location and opened a second location,” Eisenfeld said by email. “However, we were not able to come to a resolution on our new lease terms with the landlord. We are excited to bring a little bit of Historic Herndon to Historic Reston!”

The Herndon location at 714 Pine Street is expected to close on Saturday, Jan. 27.

The shop will reopen in Reston by March or April of this year, according to Eisenfeld. During the interim, the tea shop will offer online purchases and pickups at Lake Anne and tea parties in Tysons in February.

The tea parties in Tysons will be hosted at The Tower Club in Towers Crescent (8000 Towers Crescent Drive, Suite 1700), but access is by ticket or appointment only.

The Reston location will feature full tea service options and more themed tea events, such as yoga and tea meditation, paddle board tea time, open mic night and literary tea hours.

“We are excited to have a space to continue new and unique tea events in and provide the cozy communitea we are known for,” Eisenfeld said.

The tea shop is expected to celebrate its big move at the Northern Virginia Tea Festival on May 4 and 5.
