Tea-rrrr-ifying Halloween

Marianne

If you haven’t had a chance to come by the shop to see our halloween decorations, try to come on by. It’s pretty scarey! The brew is dark and mysterious… and there’s a skeleton escaping from a grave in the florist’s window! You won’t want to miss it. We’ll be open until 6:00 PM this Tuesday, October 31st, scaring the trick-or-treaters.

New: Keiko Green Teas, Tea Shop Mystery, World Tea Expo Goodies

Marianne

Fine Japanese green teas from Keiko Tea. This is a new source and a new type of tea for us. An area of exploration and education about the teas of Japan.

Also from Keiko, Green Tea Drops: hard tea candy flavored with mint, ginger, or cherry. Coming soon we will carry Green Tea chocolates.

Beautiful insulated travel tea glasses. Available in insulated glass with beautiful delicate design, or colorful outer layer with stainless steel inside, these have an infuser topped by a tightly screwed on lid, allowing you to brew your own high quality loose leaf tea when traveling. Be sure to check them out.

Latest Tea Shop Mystery by Laura Childs: Blood Orange Brewing, filled with her usual quirky characters, suspenseful plot, and tea time recipes. If you haven’t read any of her books yet, it’s time to get started. She’s not just a pretty face! We carry the entire series in paperback as they become available.

From The World Tea Expo: a variety of tea related items including baseball caps and round brimmed hats with the I Love Tea logo, gorgeous silk scarves in black with a white design of a tea cup silk screened on each end, well priced sterling silver bookmarks with a teapot dangle.

Fresh shipments of delicate white porcelain pieces, reasonably priced for your tea table, new teacup card designs from Kimberly Shaw Graphics, and new Tiny Teapot Jewelry designs. And of course, there’s always a new vintage linen or china piece from my auction or estate sale roaming!
