Where has the Year Gone?


Wow! here we’re in June already. The year is almost half way through. That means iced tea season is here, Farmers Markets Season, wedding and graduation seasons, Father’s Day, and…The World Tea Expo.

This Sunday marks the start of the Scarborough Farmers Market, every Sunday from 9 AM to 1 PM in front of Scarborough Town Hall right on Route #1. We have quite a line-up of vendors this year, so be sure to come and check us out.                       

            As usual, we’ll have some hot teas on tap and iced teas as the weather warrants. What’s your favorite iced tea? I know one of the most popular has been our Green Tea with Coconut and Ginger…MMmmmm!

The month of May was a busy one with the highly successful Victoria Mansion Doll Tea, the ongoing Biddeford Farmers and Artisans Outdoor Market, tea parties, and other occasions. The Doll Tea was just exquisite! Not only was the tea and food outstanding, the volunteers at the Mansion go all out in making up gifts, gift bags, raffles, and door prizes for the attendees, setting beautiful tables, and ensuring that everyone has a marvelous time.

If you have never attended this event, be sure to keep an eye out for it next year. It is the perfect outing for a special child and adult; this year we even had a father and daughter which was so sweet!

I’m so looking forward to this year’s Tea Expo and will update you on our shop hours as the Expo get s little closer. So stay tuned…
