I apologize for not posting last week! But here I am again with a thank you to the West Milford Township Library 🙂
So, at the talk, I explained basic tea knowledge, including the history of tea, the science behind tea, the medicinal benefits of tea, and finally, how to brew a good cuppa.
We had over 50 people at the West Milford Township Library, all with some amazing tea knowledge! At the end, we celebrated the day with tea and goodies made by the Friends of the West Milford Township Library.
Everyone had wonderful tea mugs, including proper tea saucers and china, some heavy mugs that seemed sturdy enough to hold a whole pot of tea, and even some mugs that would be suited for a museum.
Some of the patrons told me that they have tasted tea from all over the world, including Israel where they have an herbal mint tea of mint leaves and sugar with a touch of lemon, another who sampled tea in Turkey, and yet another who sampled from Africa! Obviously, we had some very well-traveled tea samplers as well.
One patron asked for some tea shops in the area where they could search for some good loose and bagged tea. While I could not provide the answer, not being from the area, all the other patrons stepped up and threw out so many names, I was in awe! So many places to shop in West Milford for tea! Obviously, I am growing up in the wrong town.
At the end, people thanked me for the talk and some mentioned that they exchanged contact information with one another in order to host a tea party of their own. The power of tea, bringing people together for a relaxing cup 🙂
So again, thank you so much, West Milford Township Library, for being wonderful hosts! I hope to come again to give another talk.
