Tea Centre of Stockholm:
Originally from Sri Lanka, Vernon Mauris had a fortuitous route to arriving in Sweden through tea, eventually founding East West Scandinavia AB in 1978.
Beginning as a purely circumstantial and tiny shop, the Tea Centre of Stockholm has become an iconic landmark in Södermalm and the crown jewel of East West Scandinavia AB. It is an old-world, homely shop, where only one product is in focus – tea. A passion for tea permeates the atmosphere of the shop, and even its furnishings are a delight to the true tea enthusiast. High-quality tea, personal service and good ethical standards are the hallmarks of the Tea Centre of Stockholm.
Today Vernon's son Gihan Mauris runs the family business.
