There’s the Tupperware parties, the candle parties, and jewelry parties. But one party that has been around for a very long time and hasn’t gone away – a Tea Party! Owner of Artful Brew Tea, Kris James, shows us how to throw one.
The first tea is from the Tarajulie Estate in Assam (northern India). It is a wonderful, basic black tea -- very hearty and malty. Assam is usually a tea used in English Breakfast blends.
The second tea is a white tea, which is the least processed and has the most antioxidants. It is a flavored tea called Scarlet Berry. It is a very fruity blend that has pomegranate, rose petals and red pepper berries.
The third tea is the oolong called Blue Moon. It looks like little blue/green nuggets, which are rolled in ginseng.
Kris would love to help you throw your own Tea Party. If you book a party with her by Friday, May 25th at 5 PM, just mention Twin Cities Live and Kris will throw in the cost of groceries! Click here for information and to contact Kris.
