Modeled after a traditional French teahouse, Bosie Tea Parlor invites quiet contemplation and conscientious sipping in its 22-seat café—adorned with vintage chairs, tables, and lamps. Drawing from more than 80 varieties of tea from l’Âge de Thé, master of ceremonies Kiley Holliday pairs five seasonally inspired teas with bites of sweet and savory fare at tastings held Wednesday evenings from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. through May. The youngest female certified by the American Tea Masters Association, Kiley will lead a brief explanation about the history, benefits, and components of the event’s quintet of teas before sharing ways to repurpose used tea bags into pet-turtle chew toys. Each vibrant brew comes with small snacks that may include quiche with side salad, savory canapés, mini pastries, or macarons with two teas that balance each cup’s complex flavors.
In time for Cupid’s birthday, Bosie Tea Parlor also equips patrons with a bounteous Valentine’s basket full of organic teas, cookies, and macarons. Black, green, and tulsi tea blends contain aromatic ingredients such as rose petals that highlight six macarons’ dark chocolate, rose, and pistachio flavors. The basket’s three cookie tubes sheath 10 baked treats apiece, and couples can nibble the bergamot sable, vanilla sable, and chocolate fleur du sel cookies while reading aloud the most romantic passages from Grey’s Anatomy to celebrate the holiday.
