VIVA Scandinavia

This beautiful tea-centric brand from Denmark has put a modern spin on an ancient past-time. Known for its high-quality materials and contemporary design, VIVA Scandinavia encourages you to relax, savor, and sip. They just launched a Toronto-based shop-in-shop, stepping out of their e-commerce and into brick-and-mortar for the first time. Located at Plentea in Parkdale, from now through February 2020 you can browse their beautiful selection of wares. Although the tea-sets are mainly designed for in-home sipping, we love their Tea Carafe for drinking on the go.
