The mother-daughter team of Bette Pitzel and Michelle Shaw is responsible for the newest addition to Perham's Main Street landscape: Sugar and Spice's Tea Shoppe.


The idea for the tea shoppe came originally from a trip that Pitzel took to London, England, where tea is a way of life.

Shaw said that they started thinking about bringing tea to Perham because it was something the town didn't really have.
