Unwind Tea Leaves & Coffee Beans owner Wendy Favreau grew up drinking tea with her grandparents–iced with lemon slices with Gramma, hot with milk and sugar with Babci. She carried her family’s tea habit on into adulthood and when it occurred to her she couldn’t buy loose leaf tea anywhere but Teavana at the mall, she decided to open her own shop.

Go, girl.

Unwind opened last month just off Main Street in downtown Pineville, 20 minutes south of Charlotte (on a no-traffic day, which doesn’t exist). The quaint little shop features a variety of loose leaf teas as well as coffee beans and American-made artisan handbags and jewelry.
