Written by Abigail Clifford, Correspondent

            Tara Boroson, 1981 Upper Perkiomen High School graduate and current Phoenixville resident, purchased "Deihl's Real Teas & Cafe" on Main Street in East

Tara Boroson, new owner of Steep Fine Teas & Cafe, shows the process of brewing of one

of the cafe's many teas available.  Steep Fine Teas & Cafe is located at 239 Main St. in 

East Greenville.

Greenville and reopened as "Steep Fine Teas & Coffee" on Friday, August 2.

            Boroson, a former IT worker, decided it was time to follow her creative dreams of running a business in the Upper Perkiomen area.

            "It's been a long-running thought that having a business would be fun; this came onto the market at the right moment and I was looking for something new," stated Boroson.

            She believes the Upper Perkiomen area has the potential to be a successful and she wants to help the process.

            "I am really excited to see the Upper Perkiomen business district come back to life," stated Boroson.

            Boroson has seen the business community grow over the past fifteen years after Phoenixville's area saw a massive dip in small business during the 1980's and 1990's, a similar trend that occurred in Upper Perk.

            "I've seen growth from empty store fronts and dollar stores into a really dynamic community and a place where people really want to hang out," stated Boroson. "I've been seeing East Greenville and Pennsburg slowly come in that direction; I really want to help get us there."

            Growing up, Boroson had worked in several cafes and diners throughout high school and college. She even rose to be    as one of her positions. She also has an extensive volunteer and work background at her children's school food program at Kimberton Warldorf.

            Her goal with the reopening of "Deihl's Real Teas & Cafe" into "Steep Fine Teas & Coffee" is to create less of a retail experience, but promote a hangout and relaxation spot for customers.

            Currently, customers can choose among 180 tea flavors to enjoy, as well as, several different coffee styles, bubble tea, and kombucha to enjoy in the store. Several food options are available along with home baked goodies, made my Boroson herself. Customers can also purchase tea bags to-go or measure to order bags.

            With an emphasis on local suppliers, most of the store goods are supplied by Phoenixville businesses.

            "I would really like to cultivate supplies from Upper Perk as well,' stated Boroson.

            Boroson's future goals are to install weekly menu options that allow for more dynamic foods. She also wishes to create weekly events where people can enjoy a writing club, book club, stitching club and live music.

            "For right now, our biggest emphasis on future goals is to expand our hours for the fall," stated Boroson.

            "Steep Fine Teas & Coffee" is currently open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Sunday's from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., as well as, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday's.
