Anna Marie's - A Tea Lovers Paradise

Posted on April 20, 2021 at 3:20 PM by Claire Rodgers

Anna Marie’s Tea Shop, located in historic downtown Liberty, is a quaint but mighty tea lover’s paradise.

Brenda Hedrick and her family began their family-owned business in 1984 as a design business called Bohnet Interiors, named after Brenda’s great-grandmother Anna Marie Bohnet. 

A decade later, in 1994, Anna Marie’s Tea Shop was born. The shop was first operated out of the family’s gorgeous century home just blocks away from historic downtown Liberty. Until one day, Brenda was walking down Franklin Street and saw the current owner of the building, the local barber, washing his windows. She asked if he’d ever sell the beautiful little space, and the rest is history.

The family and community mindset that started the local family business is steeped into the soul of this brand. 

Today, monthly-themed tea parties and private tea parties are still hosted in Hedrick’s gorgeous century home, inviting community and conversation over a delicious cup of tea and Brenda’s famous scones. Customers can enjoy tea parties on the family’s expansive porch or lovely garden, with themes ranging from a British Springtime Tea Party to A Shabby Chic Porch Party. 

The tea shop, located at 9 W Franklin Street, is where locals and visitors can stop to get teas to enjoy at home. With 90 different loose-leaf teas, tea pots, cups, spoons, and tea wallets, you can find everything you need to brew the perfect cup of tea, and the perfect gift for the tea lover in your life too. (Don’t forget to pick up a timer – it’s key to the perfect brew!)

The fragrant and relaxing atmosphere of this shop makes it the perfect place to stroll through and find the most unique flavors – from Chamomile Lavender Herbal Tea to Buckingham Breakfast Blend. 

Anna Marie’s Tea Shop is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Next time you’re in historic downtown Liberty, make sure to stop by and experience all Anna Marie’s Teas has to offer.
