A visit to Edison Ford Winter Estates?
You may have seen my earlier post about the newest tea from Local Tea Company. The Edison Ford Fruit Tea created to celebrate the beautiful winter homes of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford at the Edison Ford Winter Estates. Recently I had relatives visiting from Yorkshire and decided to take a day trip south to the Edison Ford Winter Estates in Fort Myers. If you read my blogs you know I like to share my tea experiences with you (England , Northern Michigan, South Carolina Tea Plantation.) This one is on my own doorstep, I just have to share. A ‘one tank trip’ not to be missed! Read More
A name for Organic Strawbango Tea
‘The naming of teas is a difficult matter,
It isn’t just one of your everyday games—
Some might think you mad as a hatter.
Should you tell them each goes by several names.
For starters each tea in this world must belong, to the families Black or Green or Oolong;
Then look more closely at these family trees—-
Some include Indians along with Chinese.”
T.S. Elliot, The NAMING OF CATS with liberties taken by Local Tea Company :>
The naming of this tea was very difficult too. You have every right to think the name was taken straight from a T.S. Elliot book! We are very excited about our Organic Strawbango Black tea and know many will love this blend as much as we do. Maybe even as much as your feline friends.
Organic Strawbango Black is an organically cultivated black tea from the mountains of Sri Lanka. Not only do we have a splendid tasting black tea, but two of our favorite Florida fruits are added for the perfect amount of exotic sweetness! Scattered between the juicyness, you will find delicate Calendula blossoms. A truly beautiful and aromatic tea.
Have you guessed what those fruits might be? Strawberry and Mango of course, these two fruits are made for each other.
Join us in celebrating this exceptional tea with a ‘bang’! Gift yourself, a friend, or a member of your family with Organic Strawbango Black tea. You can always find this tea from one of our serving partners, Cafe in the Park in Payne Park in downtown Sarasota. This iced tea is perfect after a bit of fun at Circus Park, or during one of the amazing outdoor music sessions they have.
Edison Ford Winter Estates Fruit Tea
Many of life’s failures are from people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up
Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal
These two quotes say much about these two incredible men. They are remembered in our community at the beautiful Edison Ford Winter Estates in Fort Myers. If you have not visited yet, I urge you to take the time to go as soon as possible. You will not be disappointed, the grounds and homes are lovely, and the many exhibits are fascinating.
You will also find the latest from Local Tea Company, Edison Ford Fruit Tea, when you visit. An exotic blend of fruits growing in the gardens of the Edison Ford Winter Estates, including mango, pineapple, and assorted citrus. A natural fruit tisane with no caffeine, the Edison Ford Fruit Tea is very popular with visitors.
You will find packets of the Edison Ford Fruit Tea available for sale in the gift shop. They also have a lovely selection of teapots and other tea accessories.
Local Tea Company is thrilled to celebrate one more of our SunCoast local treasures. As we say, Sip Locally.
