This Sip Locally tea blog is one part of our tea journey at Local Tea Company.

We started this blog way back in 2010, about the same time we launched our website. 

We were at the Sarasota Farmer’s Market and so we posted many pictures from our Saturday mornings. 

Glynis referred to herself as the TeaLady and was leading tea classes as well as giving ‘Tea Talks’ to groups at Selby Gardens

We keep adding bits and pieces as we go, details about loose leaf teas, herbals, and tisanes.  We try to have a bit of fun and welcome any feedback you may have for us.

Many of the blog posts here at our Sip Locally Tea Journey have been removed as they are no longer relevant.  We do miss the fun we had on Saturday mornings at our Tea Tent at the Sarasota Farmer’s Market.  Many of our Tea Teens, have know graduated from universities and have started their own careers.  We are proud to have been the first “REAL” job for some of them.
