We focus so much on the art of coffee, sometimes we forget to honor our other comforting cup of life: tea! This evening, Summer Plum of "Felicitea" will be hosting a tea tasting of her special selection of hand blended teas. This free event will feature the proper handling and preparation of several varieties of tea, accompanied by a delicious assortment of home baked scones. There is a lot more to know about tea than "sweet" or "unsweet"!
There is no charge for this tasting but, "Feliciteas" will be available for purchase!
