MATBA - Goodie Bags!

The Mid Atlantic Tea Business Association offers an excellent opportunity for like minded businesses professionals in the tea industry to connect and share on several levels. The mission statement for the Association is to advance the knowledge of tea through networking and educational opportunities for the entrepreneur within the tea business. In this end, the Association offers an Annual Seminar typically held in April, and three additional meetings held in January, July, and October. At the Annual Seminar this year, Goodie Bags were provided to the members in attendance. They were full of samples and brochures. Special thanks to all the members that contributed to this bag of delights!

 Gypsy's Tea Room, where the seminar was held this year, shared a sample of Gypsy's Blend. Their house blend is a decaffeinated black tea with sweet raspberry and rich vanilla undertones.
East Indies Coffee and Tea shared a sample package of 5 pyramid tea sachets with such flavors as Chai Americaine, Earl Grey a la creme, Assam, Lemon Souffle Rooibos, and Pomegranate.

Susanna Reppert of The Rosemary House included a sample of  their special herb seasoning or bread mix.  Tea-for-All included a sample of roasted Hojicha, a green tea from Japan while The Tea and Hat Lady included Rosie's Heart, a dark tea with a dusty rose flavor from the Hunan Province of China. Bingley's Teas provided a boxed sample of their newest Jane Austen inspired tea series. Karen Donnelly from Enchantment for Your Table tucked in a pretty card that featured a recipe for Buttermilk Currant Scones. Darlene Meyers Perry from The Tea Lover's Archives included her website information and The Tea house Times had a clever promotional card with a tea measuring scoop attached to the card encouraging you to 'get the scoop'.  And the Association added their newest sticker for members to display at their business location.
