Tea Lounge Adds Infusion of Bohemia to East Michigan

Published on

In a sleepy East Michigan town, best known as Dow Chemical’s world headquarters, a former Chemical Bank branch is now home to a decidedly more free-spirited venture. The Grove Tea Lounge in Midland, Michigan, is a collaborative project between two couples, Patrick and Shannon McElgunn and Erin and Joe Rivard, who all came together to share their passion for tea, as well as create a new and exciting space for their hometown.

Three soft opening events were held last week, including an Emergency Responders preview day that welcomed the community’s emergency responders to enjoy a restoring cuppa and check out the new lounge. The space officially opened for business on Thursday, February 2, serving tea, kombucha, drip coffee, espresso, and a selection of food items. Patrick McElgunn informed Fresh Cup that the former bank’s drive thru window will soon be operational by late February or early March, after the team dials in indoor service.
