World Building: Tea Room Names

I often find myself needing to create numerous small businesses as I’m writing. This is especially true for cozy mysteries, which as set in quaint little towns where the proprietor next door is just as likely to be the victim as the killer. When I go through this process, I end up with quite a few names before I settle on one. I’ll share my list here with you, in case you’re in need of inspiration!

As always, I can guarantee that any of this tea shop names haven’t already been used somewhere, but I enjoyed making the list!

  • The Cup and Saucer
  • What’s the Tea
  • Saucer Sisters
  • Tempest in a Teapot
  • Earl Grey’s
  • My Cup of Tea
  • The Silver Service
  • Chamomile Country
  • The Sugar Cube
  • Stop and Steep
  • The Sugar Bowl
  • Sit and Sip
  • The Silver Spoon

Personally, I’d love to go to any of these fictional tea rooms! What would you add to the list? I’d love to know!
