Super Hero Spotlight - Chrissy, Cha House

Category: Hillsborough Street Blog

Meet Christine Vorpagel, the owner of Cha House, and her partner, Garth!

"We are an Asian-inspired tea house, influenced by the tastes and traditions from Taiwan, driven by our community's love for quality, authenticity, and Earth Friendly commerce. All of our ingredients are from Taiwan, and 100% of our products are either compostable, biodegradable, or recyclable. Before COVID, we hosted tons of fun events like percentage nights, movie nights, music videos, and social justice awareness campaigns. If we can survive this pandemic, we will keep doing our best to make everyone in Raleigh feel welcome and happy at our little tea shop on Hillsborough" ~ Chrissy

Fun Facts:

  • Favorite colors: black & white
  • Shop mascot: The Hummingbird! She has Tea Leaves for wings, and flits about creating Cha-mmunity everywhere She goes

Cha House serves both drinks and food, so it makes a great stop no matter what you're in the mood for. You can enjoy these Taiwanese treats in person or by ordering online for pickup!
