Elmwood Inn Fine Teas and Benjamin Press sprang from the success of the Elmwood Inn Tea Room in Perryville Kentucky. Over its 14 years of existence, Elmwood Inn developed an international reputation as one of America's favorite locations for a traditional afternoon tea.

After serving thousands of guests, the tea room closed on July 31, 2004 in order for us to grow our expanding wholesale tea and publishing businesses, now located in Danville, Kentucky.

Being educators, we have always felt the need to share our tea talents with willing students. Since 2000, over 350 aspiring tea entrepreneurs from across Canada and the United States have attended Elmwood's TEA 101. These seminars, along with our tea books, continue to inspire tea professionals everywhere.

Elmwood Inn is committed to spreading the good news of tea to a thirsty world. We like to call it "a cup of serenity."

  • An amazing assortment of teas in a very nice store. Even had free samples. A family member has been ordering teas from here for years and I can see why. Excellent flavors and a large assortment.

  • I was told about Elmwood by an undergraduate student I spoke with at the Hub Coffee shop. When I called Elmwood, I was invited to share a cup of delicious monkey tea with Mr Richardson. He explained the blends of many of the teas, including Paris Afternoon, which was described as Earl Grey with and extra bit of Bergamot for the Earl Grey lovers. I think this location has almost everything a tea lover could ask for, including advice from Mr. Richardson, who is a master Blender, professor, historian, and much more. I believe he even wrote the manuals for at least a few of the widely known tea companies of the world. So if you're ever in Danville, the ❤️ of Kentucky, and you enjoy properly made teas, this is one spot you may want to consider.
  • Always has the tea/chai and supplies I want. Never disappointed.
