Last Tuesday, teAlchemy‘s very own Lynda Budd held a Shop and Sip tea party at the Hazelton Hotel‘s ONE Restaurant in the posh neighborhood of Yorkville. Traditional media and social media alike were invited to sample from a selection of teAlchemy’s teas, from milder white teas to bolder black teas. Pairings of artisinal cheeses, fruits and the crowd-pleasing scones made from teAlchemy’s Rooibos tea powder (transformed into a syrup) were served.
Invitees were then escorted to one of the Hazelton Hotel’s beautiful suites where Lynda gave invitees a brief intro into the founding of teAlchemy. Having tired of her career in corporate planning and real estate development, she wanted to fuse her business skills with her passion for tea, and that’s how teAlchemy was born.
The event concluded with a Q +A sessions where attendees were able to call upon Lynda’s knowledge of teas. And what better way to learn about tea than to sample? All attendees walked away with a $50 gift card courtesy of teAlchemy.
