Tea Workshop

1 PM - 3:30 PM

Welcome Tea Lovers!

   Whether your favorite tea is black, green or herbal (berries & nuts included in herbal) there will be a great selection of hot teas to taste. The workshop will start with a brief "History of Tea," followed by the good stuff as each person will concoct their own special tea blend, (tea bags included), that they will take home to enjoy with family and friends. There will be handouts with information on each herb that we will be using. In Colonial times (the same goes for today) a number of herbs had medicinal properties. Please note that only a few of the herbs that we have are NOT recommended for pregnant women and they will be marked.
