Lucy R. is literally a life-long customer at the Secret Garden. Her mother Andre helped design our original store, and was pregnant with Lucy at the time. Because of this, Kathy calls Lucy the Secret Garden Baby!

Lucy has always loved the Secret Garden, and her favourite tea is Creamy Earl Grey. She enjoys visiting the Garden for special occasions as well as quick tea breaks.

Since Lucy is now in college studying Computer Science, she doesn’t get to visit quite as often. But she still finds time to enjoy her Creamy Earl Grey before classes or while studying. And she’ll always be a special part of the Secret Garden family!
