Get set and ready to make tea, for fall.
We are launching our Annual Tea Fundraiser this fall – starting this month. Making blends and custom tea blends. Want to join us? firstname.lastname@example.org
We will discuss growing, harvesting, drying and storing teas!
In preparation for our tea production we are going to have at least one (or more time permitting) tea blending party.
We will mix herbs and dried fruit and try a few.
We will work on developing our LEGS signature blends among them Summer Berry Tea (name to be chosen).
You are invited to come to the Healing Muse.
Wed August 11th at 5 p.m.
RSPV REQUIRED! here
We will need a couple of tea kettles and a few, maybe 4-5 teaposts (small) if everybody brings one it should be enough.
If you have already experimented with different blends pls bring your recipes.
We have some recipes from last year and will develop new ones.
I am looking forward to seeing you all at the Healing Muse!
See some sample ideas for recipes from Dorota here:
For those of us who like to experiment I have 3 book recommendations.
All available at the library.
