My Cup of Tea

teaTea, I think we can all agree, is a great, delicious thing. It's comforting, warming and pairs so well with a cozy blanket and a new book. The story behind tea itself, it's preparation and the culture surrounding it, is just as interesting and next Thursday, May 10th, at 11 am you can witness some of that history for yourself as we present a Chinese Tea Ceremony. You'll be able to experience this elegant tradition, as well as sample some Oolong tea from the high mountains. This program is intended for ages 18 and up, and you can register by contacting the branch. While you wait, here are some books to get you started on your journey.
