Tucked in the corner of the third garden was the resource area where there was information about sweeteners provided by Sonnewald, a tea recipe offered by East Indies Tea. Co., tea samples distributed by The Tea Source, Tea Scapes Tea Bar, and An Early Elegance, and other little surprises.
And right near the resource center was the opportunity to purchase ice cream! Our local Bruster's blended specialty tea flavored ice cream just for this event. There was chocolate earl grey, lavender vanilla, chai, and a chamomile honey almond blend. Simply yummy!
And the musical line up for the festival included Sasanach, an Irish fiddler, and Jonathan Frazier, talented in all the arts including music!
The three out buildings were utilized for the festival as well. The one directly behind Rosemary House was the tea tasting area, the building behind Sweet Remembrances housed two vendors, and to the right of that building was the speakers area. Back behind the red buildings were all the additional vendors that joined us for this two day event. We'll share more tomorrow.
