US tea specialist Amanzi debuts on New Cavendish Street Monday, 6th August 2012
Having already gained cult status in the States, tea fanatics Amanzi have just signed for their first store in London, choosing New Cavendish Street just north of Oxford Circus.
Forget stuffy tea rooms and airs and graces, as Amanzi is about as far from the traditions of English tea drinking as it is possible to be. Taking a Zulu word for water, the idea for Amanzi began in Zimbabwe, before moving to the United States in 2005 with the aim of “redefining” the entire tea drinking experience.
With the first Amanzi cart opening in Miami, the tea specialist now counts Saks Fifth Avenue as a stockist, and is now developing British expansion strategy. Its first store on UK shores, Amanzi is set to open the doors to its New Cavendish Street location in October this year.
Leading retail property advisors CWM acted on behalf of landlord Howard De Walden, who exchanged contracts with Amanzi back in July for a 10 year lease on the property.
