$12 for a Tea Class for One and Classic Duo Tea Sampler ($25 Value)

Classes (a $15 value each) begin with a discussion of the history of tea, from Chinese green to European black teas. Students learn how to care for each cup with individual steeping techniques, and learn how each cup cares for them by reviewing specific health benefits. Students sample several teas along with cookies and biscuits. Classes meet from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on the first Wednesday of the month, and 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on the third Sunday of the month. In addition, students take home a Classic Duo tea sampler (a $10 value) that includes 2-ounce samples of Sencha Kyoto Cherry Rose and Assam loose-leaf teas and a 2-inch mesh tea infuser.

Margaret's Fine Imports

In her bio, Margaret Harris jokes that she "may have had her first 'cup of tea' when she was only one day old." That's because Harris was raised in Poland, where tea, she writes, "is the primary household beverage." Today, she applies her training at the Warsaw Medical College to discuss the health benefits of her brews with customers at her tea-and-coffee shop, Margaret's Fine Imports. In addition to stocking more than 200 types of loose-leaf tea, from Chinese green tea to British teas such as Taylor's Yorkshire Gold tea and PG Tips, Harris completes proper tea times with German and Polish sweets, Asian-style tea sets, and napkins autographed by the Mad Hatter.

I did the first level tea class with my huusband. The class was informative and everyone very helpful. They have a huge assortment of teas and accessories. Prices are much more reasonable that some other retailers.
