Mootz Run Tea Shop

5230 Moots Run Rd. Alexandria, OH 43001

OPEN FRIDAYS and SATURDAYS FROM 11-5. The Mootz Run Tea Shop is nestled in the hills of Central Ohio along the meandering creek, Mootz Run, whose name we share. We live on the same property in an Italianate home circa 1872, built by the Spellman family, one of the original settlers of Granville, Ohio. We are 4.2 miles from the heart of Granville and just a short 20 min drive from 270 in Columbus.

From Granville-get on West Broadway and head West- it turns into Moots Run Road. Enjoy the scenic drive. We are on the North side of the road. From Columbus, take 161 East to State RT 37 Johnstown exit- Dont take the 310 Johnstown. From exit, head North or left over the overpass to the first road, Moots Run and turn right- we are just down the road first drive past the Church of Christ.

The shop is located on the second floor of the barn beneath a beamed ceiling. The myriad of tins filled with handcrafted teas and the aromas of spices and herbs will cheer you up.

Our loose leaf tea shop has over 300 varieties of wonderful teas. We are serious about our tea and have the best in each category. You can find puerh, semi-oxidized oolong, cherry blossom tea, first flush, 2nd flush and monsoon Darjeeling, single estate teas, blooming teas, Japanese green tea, Chinese green tea, Irish Breakfast, Chamomile teas, mint teas, white tea, rooibos, yerba mate, fruit teas, herbal tea, single herbs and our artisan tea blends. Our tea shop has something for everyone- from the novice to the seasoned tea drinker.

Our brand is Petali Teas, which is Italian for petals, an ingredient we use freely in our blends. We sell our product wholesale tea to tearooms, coffee houses, restaurants, spas and specialty shops. You can find our teas at many shops and coffee houses across the USA, Canada and Mexico. Our specialty is wholesale private label teas.

In 2014, we launched our new brand Modern Tea Girl – offering retail packed tea, all natural frosting mixes and tea gifts.
