Behind the Scenes: Dr. T Pott’s Tea Shop Video Shoot
Dr. T Pott’s Tea Shop uses NCR Console to make sure inventory is maximized, to ensure seamless shift scheduling, and to even predict the weather.
See how in an upcoming video. In the meantime, please do enjoy our behind the scenes photo essay.
Special thanks to American Tea Room. This Los Angeles-based business loaned us the site to shoot at.
Dr. T, the proprietor of Dr. T’s Tea Shop, played by Los Angeles actor Circus Szalewski.
Dr. T’s apathetic employee, Punk Girl, is played by actress Angela Jaymes. The assistant to her right is using NCR Console to check sales data. It’s interesting to note what goes on out of the camera’s eye, including these wood boxes to raise props.
Before NCR Console, Dr. T’s Tea Shop didn’t know what wasn’t selling, such as this limited edition Mr. Tea Rex t-shirt.
In addition to NCR Console, Dr. T’s Tea Shop uses the NCR Silver point-of-sale app on iPad.

This lab assistant, emerging out of the mysterious red room, is about to replace another lab assistant, thanks to NCR Console shift schedule texting.
After receiving his shift schedule via text, Lab Assistant B effortlessly replaces Lab Assistant A … without spilling a drop of tea (well, at least in the final take).
Hair and makeup are essential!
