A good hot steaming cup of tea is one of life’s pleasures. There are hundreds of flavors, floral varieties, mints, and traditional teas to enjoy. I can never turn down a tea infused with chocolate, citrus teas when I have a sore throat, tea with crumpets, sweet tea on a hot afternoon… well, maybe there’s never a bad time for tea. Tea is one of the few refreshments both honored and enjoyed around the globe. Although in the West it would seem the British have tea obsession down to a science, in China and Southeast Asia, its places of origin, tea is synonymous with life itself.
As the second most consumed drink after water, tea is a global phenomenon. Just as the United States is a melting pot of cultures, all manners of tea can be found here. At 2 p.m. April 29 at the South Irving Library, join us for an afternoon that includes games, a Japanese tea ceremony demonstration, and tastings of teas from around the world. Bring your favorite tea cup for a chance to win a prize.
This program is dedicated to the memory of library employee and friend, Edith Holland. Over the years Edith participated in many library events and selflessly volunteered to make our community a better place. It is our honor to invite the public to this joyous event, supported by the contributions of Irving library staff.
