Ming Tea on WSLR

Local Tea Company is underwriting the Good Evening Cabal show on Sarasota’s community radio WSLR on Wednesday from 9 pm-11 pm. The host Curt Werner, plays music from the late 60s and early 70s, and we expect him to play a bit of our favorite band, Ming Tea.

Yes, Austin Powers is the lead singer of Ming Tea. Ming Tea BBC Album Cover Austin Powers

Yes, they killed with BBC and followed up with Daddy Wasn’t There. Check them both out and laugh.

What does this have to do with tea?

Nothing, just hilarious lyrics.

What does this have to do with local?

WSLR is a local treasure, and we love supporting this station. Curt and his wife, Gail, are active in the local art community. Gail is our shop’s curator on Siesta Key, selecting the local artist we display at the shop.

Tune in on Wednesday night and support your local radio. Another way you can Sip Locally.


Local Tea Company

Local Tea Company promotes local products and services, protects local environments, and celebrates local treasures. Great things start at the local level.  Therefore, it is no surprise our motto is “Sip Locally.”

Three times more money is injected into the local economy when people buy from local businesses rather than national chains.  Local businesses put their money back into the local economy.  Above all, both employees and vendors contribute to a cycle of support that strengthens a community.  Sip Locally.

Our locally inspired, loose leaf teas celebrate Sarasota.  For example, our most popular tea, Selby Select, is inspired by Marie Selby Botanical Gardens.  In addition, Selby was our home base from 2007 until 2016.  We have created teas celebrating other parts of Selby Gardens, including our Little Monkey Fruit Tea and our Secret Garden Green Tea.

Other locally inspired loose leaf teas include…

We created a tea for the Edison Ford Winter Estates in Fort Meyers.  You will love the sweetness of our Edison Ford Fruit Tea.  Local Tea Company organized the Celebrating Sarasota Collection of Teas.  We are working on more clever creations of loose leaf tea blends.

Join us in practicing “Sip Locally” throughout our community.  We love Sarasota, and we love sharing our community with the many visitors we meet every day.  In conclusion, we appreciate all the support, and we will continue working hard to contribute to our local community.
