Owners Frances and Billy Lee met while attending the University of the Incarnate Word, where Frances earned her undergraduate and graduate degree, and Billy attained his undergraduate degree. Frances is originally from the Philippines, while Billy is from Taiwan.
After graduating from UIW in 2012, the couple traveled home and began studying the art of making tea. They hold several certificates of achievement, including ones from their study under a brew master in the High Mountains of the Nangang District, Taiwan, as well as The American Barista & Coffee School, and the Texas Coffee School.
Recently, the couple moved back to San Antonio looking to establish their roots. They are excited to share the traditions, techniques and tastiness they learned over years of study with San Antonio locals.
Since their alma mater is located right across the street, the couple thought it only fitting to host their grand opening on the same day at the university’s Light the Way celebration. Guests can enjoy a nice cup of tea and then travel across the way for a wonderful holiday celebration.
Brew’s Lee Tea will be open Monday–Thursday from 10am to 6pm, and Friday-Saturday from 10am to 8pm. For more information on Brew’s Lee Tea, visit the tea shop online at www.brewsleetea.com.
