Tea time can be just about any time with Ancaster's Tea Amo

News Jul 17, 2019 by Mike Pearson Ancaster News

Coming from a big Irish family, Marian Peter and daughter Heather have always enjoyed entertaining family and friends over a cup of tea and some delectable treats.

Now, the longtime Ancaster residents are taking that sentiment on the road with their new tea trailer, called Tea Amo.

Heather purchased a vintage camping trailer back in 2013, with an idea to retrofit it as a mobile tea service. The process also included a food safety inspection.

“I had always loved tea rooms and food trucks, and when I came across the trailer for sale, it seemed like it could be the ideal fit to bring those two passions together,” she says in a blog post.

Launched in June, Tea Amo started out at various markets, festivals and parks. Today, Marian and Heather are also focusing their efforts on private events, including showers, anniversary and birthday parties, weddings and corporate functions.

Tea Amo covers the Greater Hamilton Area, serving hot loose-leaf teas, iced loose-leaf teas, locally-roasted coffee and dainty treats.

Items include the family-favourite raspberry cake rolls and shortbread, which are handmade locally by female-owned businesses like Ancaster’s Andybela Eatery — another mother/daughter team — and Christy's Gourmet Gifts of Burlington.

Tea Amo is active on multiple social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
