I apologize for not getting an email out to notify you that we will NOT be at the Tower Grove Farmers’ Market today.
Shop IS open regular hours (9am-5pm)
Come in and see our New Floor!
We are SOOO pleased with it, and the work of Brian at Champion Floor Company who did a great job with our rough and uneven concrete floor. The shop looks so much more like I’d always envisioned…..and could not have afforded without the continuous support of YOU, my regular customers and you sharing the word of mouth about our tiny shop.
Also got another tea rack, so we can (hopefully) make your shopping experience less overwhelming by spreading things out a little more.
In the tea flavors department:
Spring flavors: Cherry Sencha and Cherry Berry Tisane are back; Persian Plum Rose in stock through May-ish. Flavored matchas are back as well (Vanilla, Raspberry, and Blueberry) – save $ – make your own instead of paying Starbucks! …. [I will be featuring a full range of matcha and other green teas at my class at Missouri Botanical Garden on Saturday morning 3/25 9-10:30am]
We’ve been out of Traveler’s Turmeric blend over the past week (waiting on our ginger shipment, hopefully this week). Also expecting delivery of chufa sedge (aka Tiger Nuts) so I can make new batch of Gwy-u Latte.
Look for new items offered at Tower Grove Market this summer too!
We are Grateful for your continued support!
6 remaining tea shopping days till Christmas….extra shopping hours this week:
Sunday 12/18/16 10am-5pm & Thurs 2pm-7pm, PLUS open till 7pm Tues, Wed, Fri; and 9am-4pm on Christmas Eve
Asian teaware, and tea brewing accessories for the tea lover on your list when you don’t know what they like! (Tea lovers on a budget rarely splurge on teaware for themselves – show them you care!)
Also – the Affordable Luxury of really fine, rare teas, like this Taiwanese Black:
It’s no different with his newest project – crafting Ruby #18, Taiwan’s most famous black tea.
Alfredo has spent the last few years learning from Master Aones, the eccentric teamaster who popularized Ruby #18. He also converted a depleted, conventional tea field into a gorgeous, organic garden, full of healthy Ruby #18 cultivar plants. These tea plants are some of the most beautiful we’ve ever seen.
Thanks to these happy, healthy plants, Alfredo’s “18 Ruby” is particularly striking and complex, with notes of cherry, sarsaparilla, and menthol. It’s a bit reminiscent of root beer floats and Cherry Coke… give it a try yourself!
Also some old & new teas from our favorites: PT Harendong (Bhaozhong Green), Hariyali (Moonshine White & Amber Red), Satemwa Estate (Zomba Pearls and Steamed Green)
We sell in small quantities, making prized teas affordable for All…because Everyone Deserves to Enjoy Good Tea!
Enjoy Tisano Cacao tea…..as if you needed one!
Tisano’s single origin Chocolate Tea is the first pure chocolate herbal tea made from the fibrous shell around the cacao bean. This chocoholics dream come true contains the sweet aroma and rich taste of dark chocolate without the fat or calories, plus magnesium, potassium & vitamin D (that the bean does not have).
Due to overwhelming popularity at The Book House book release party in July, we are bringing our version of “Butter Beer” back for Halloween weekend.
Saturday 10/29/16, from 4-8pm only, we will be offering hot or iced Butter Beer, and by request we will have a dairy-free version as well.
