Queen West residents will soon have one less window to gawk at. Red Tea Box opened 14 years ago near the corner of Queen and Manning, back when the West Queen West strip was still a dodgy place to loiter after sunset. The bakery-café was known for its dainty bento box lunches, exotic loose-leaf teas and fanciful window displays of multi-tiered cakes. Now, it seems the shop is closing due to the departure of a key staff member. Management left a detailed note about the closure in the shop’s window, offering up a few words of advice: “Remember to live more, and blog less. Take the time to notice the small, the shiny and the flavourful. Farewell and keep well. Perhaps we will see you in another incarnation.” [Via BlogTO]
