Within Paint the Roses Tea House and Cafe, Tea-For-All approaches the ancient drink with a holistic and welcoming attitude. Staffers lead an array of tea classes, from exploratory history classes to specialized sessions on how to brew the best cup, understand the complex varietals of oolong, and custom blend tea during workshops. Tea-For-All also commissions unique blends from specialty tea-makers, and creates blends of its own, such as Tropical Mist green sencha tea and Cold Comfort with chamomile, peppermint, licorice, and lemon. They also make a variety called Labyrinth, a soothing blend of green tea and herbs that make it possible for you to get out of any maze without a lawn mower.
