Bertha Palmer Centennial Tea

Bertha Palmer Centennial Tea

We introduce a new tea called Bertha Palmer Centennial Tea.  This tea is an herbal rooibos with licorice root, fennel, peppermint, and lemon verbena.  Delicious hot or iced, this rooibos is naturally caffeine-free.  We add this tea to the Celebrating Sarasota Collection of Teas.

For instance, when Mrs. Potter Palmer (Bertha Honoré Palmer) first set eyes on Sarasota in 1910, she proclaimed, ‘Here is heaven at last.’

She came to own more than 80,000 acres of what is now Sarasota County.  Also, Palmer operated a successful ranch and made her winter home at The Oaks on Historic Spanish Point.

Sarasota County celebrates the 2010 centennial of her arrival.  All are invited to honor the significant impact Mrs. Palmer made to our culturally rich community.  Please raise a cuppa Bertha Palmer Centennial Tea to this incredible woman!

After that, a birthday celebration is planned for Mrs. Palmer on the weekend of May 22nd.   Her tea will be served at various events.

Bertha Palmer Centennial Tea joins Selby Select, Mote Beach Tea, Mable’s Rose Rooibos, and Van Wezel Anniversa-Tea in the Celebrating Sarasota Collection of Teas.  In conclusion, all of these teas are available at
