Tea and an e-book!

Recently, a fellow Tea Sommelier, Carol, held a casual noontime party to launch her new e-book on cooking with tea. This e-book focuses on the use of teas that people typically already have and drink at home such as Earl Grey and Assam. The gathering was held at Organic Boutique, a gourmet food store.  Unfortunately, this shop does not have a website.

The food samples were a feast for the eyes and stomach! It included the following:

  • Lentil, Pepper, and Anise Spread with smoked tea
  • Vegetable and Lamb Dumplings with semi-oxidized Yunnan Tea 
  • Lavender Earl Grey Truffles 
  • Earl Grey Orange Sunrise Cocktail
  • Assam Lychee Cocktail

Creamy Lentil Spread

Earl Grey Orange Sunrise Cocktail

Lavender Earl Grey Truffles

The dumplings had a nice spicy kick to them. The lentil spread was smooth and creamy with a sweet pepper base. The truffles were rich and delectable. Not too sweet and you could really detect the tea and lavender. The cocktails were very refreshing and something that could really be enjoyed during summer backyard parties.

Carol does quite a few of these pop-up tea events held at different venues from bookstores to art studios which I think is awesome! If you’re interested in her tea e-book or learning more about her events, check out her tea website, The Love Of Tea.

Looking forward to the next event!
