July 2011


A hot morning at the Local Coffee + Tea tent at the Sarasota Farmer’s Market, we went through a lot of samples and sold lotsa cups of tea.  We sampled our Pinhead Gunpowder green tea, Black Rose and our new SereniTea.  This new rooibos, SereniTea with raspberry, rose petals and vanilla was hugely popular and was created for the Cancer Support Community.  Here are links to previous blog posts on SereniTea and Rooibos.

For those not able to join us at the market, we are going to again offer a promotion on our market teas this week for online purchases. Our Pinhead Gunpowder, Black Rose and SereniTea will be $1 off until next Saturday. And all online orders over $40 always ship at no charge.

We have created a new tea for the Cancer Support Community called SereniTea.  This tea has a special place in our hearts because of the good work done by this important charity.  Consider “Tea Leaves, Hope Stays” and I will to tell you more about the Cancer Support Community, but first SereniTea.

Caffeine free and sugar free, SereniTea is a red rooibos blended with raspberries, rosepetals and hints of vanilla.  SereniTea is a peaceful, calming tea and is delicious hot or iced.  High in anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals, SereniTea is excellent for your skin and can be very helpful with collicky babies.  Sprinkle a bit in your bath water to keep you skin feeling smooth.

Local Coffee + Tea will be sampling SereniTea at the Sarasota Farmer’s Market this weekend (July 30th) as part of the launch, and then in regular rotation at the Carriage House Tea Room at Selby Gardens and at our shop in Siesta Key Village.  Each packet is $10 for 2oz, enough to make 25 cups of tea, and more when you re-steep this flavorful blend.  We hope you love this tea as much as we do.

Cancer Support Community

The Cancer Support Community provides hope, education and support to people with cancer and their loved ones.  At least 20% of all revenue generated from sales of SereniTea will be donated back the Cancer Support Community by Local Coffee + Tea.  Enjoy this tea and please learn more about this very special national charity at www.cancersupportsuncoast.org.

The Florida Suncoast chapter is located in Lakewood Ranch at 5481 Communications Parkway.  The campus is gorgeous and the building is a certified LEED designed by Carlson Studio Architecture referred to as ‘Building Hope’  The setting is idyllic and offers numerous programs and learning opportunities for people facing the uncertainty of cancer.

And the Dance 2 Live, or D2L is a very unique fundraising program created by the Cancer Support Community designed to engage people in learning about the programs available while tapping your toes or breakin’ it out.  Learn more here.

Enjoy this very special, very serene beverage, SereniTea and thank you for helping us support the Cancer Support Community.

Cheers,

Great Saturday at the Local Coffee + Tea tent at the Sarasota Farmer’s Market.  We sampled our Assam black tea, our Royal-Tea green tea and our Peach Paradise herbal blend.  Our Royal-Tea green was most popular for cups of tea and our Peach Paradise was the bestseller for packets of loose leaf tea.  Here are links to previous blog posts on Peach Paradise and Royal-Tea.

For those not able to join us at the market, we are going to offer a promotion on our market teas this week for online purchases.  Our Assam, Royal-Tea and Peach Paradise are $1 off until next Saturday.  And all online orders over $40 always ship at no charge.
