Sunday, June 10, 2pm: Spring Tea Tasting
Tea is a perennial pleasure, but spring brings the most prized leaves of the year. As the weather warms,
tea bushes put all of their energy in new buds, yielding fresh and flavorful brews. Join us as we sample
early growth teas from China, Japan, and India.
Includes sampling of spring 2018 harvest teas from Michael’s tea collection and light snack.
Limited seating available.
