It's clear that Socra Tea's priorities are tea and art. Part teahouse, part art gallery, Socra Tea also cares about where that tea and art comes from?all its teas are USDA-certified organic and fair trade, and all the paintings, jewelry, ceramics, clothing, and other art are made by locals. Along with its focus on the environment and local artists, Socra Tea aims to accommodate visitors by offering gluten-free desserts and nondairy milk options, including almond milk.
The green grocer sources local and sustainable sustenance from area farms and gourmet suppliers to offer locally harvested consumers from a new Midtown storefront. Local produce harvested bi-weekly from the Eastern Market is available for the picking or juggling alongside perishables and dry goods from local and socially responsible vendors. Stock up on organic spices to season your award-winning mole sauce, or gift a selection of gourmet teas and coffee beans from The Great Lakes Coffee Roasting Company to the chronically thirsty member of your acting troupe. Creamy confections and rBST-free dairy delights from Michigan’s Caulder Dairy will delight dairietarians and provide the perfect complement to the crunchy breakfast crumbles of Randy’s Granola.
The team at Faithfully Yours can plan an entire event, or just add a chic flourish to an existing one. Some of the little ways they spruce up a party include elegant calligraphy invitations before the event, or a candy buffet during it. Though the event planning company orchestrates projects of all sizes, it specializes in artfully arranged sweets. They make quinceañeras stand out with cakes shaped like princesses, or help folks send their regards with smaller treats such as chocolate-dipped pretzels or Oreo pops delivered to loved ones.
