Kirkland Chamber of Commerce welcomes LizzyKate 

Amy and Will Riffle opened the LizzyKate tea shop earlier in July 2016, and have become a wonderful place for residents and visitors to stop, try some tea and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere in the heart of Downtown Kirkland. Read on to learn a little bit about Amy and Will Riffle:

“We’re passionate about tea.

We are tea enthusiasts who love our daily cups of tea. And we’re busy parents who want to enjoy the many health benefits of tea but sometimes have to enjoy our favorite beverage on-the-go. To bring balance to our busy lives and yours, we created LizzyKate to share our favorite teas and some great accessories. In November 2014 we launched our online store, and in July 2016 we opened our tea shop in downtown Kirkland, WA.

Our Passion

We believe the calming sensation that comes from drinking tea is universal, and that we all need more calmness in our lives. For ourselves, our family and friends, we’ve tested many types of teas and lots of differing tea accessories to find the best. Believers in the health advantages of the whole tea leaf, we are focusing on stocking our favorite loose leaf tea.

Our Company Name

We noticed that a lot of tea companies have masculine names and we wanted a feminine, yet modern name. So we took two classic names, Elizabeth and Katherine, and modernized them to make LizzyKate. Elizabeth and Katherine are also family names, and we like how the modern combination of these traditional names makes a fun company name for our modern take on the traditional world of tea.

Our goal

To provide stellar customer service in all aspects of tea consumption and purchasing, we strive for:

  • sourcing of premium teas and teaware
  • quick checkout time in person and online
  • careful packing of teas and teaware
  • speedy shipping of online orders

We are constantly looking out for the best teas and accessories and adding them continually, so please check back often!”
