Happy New Year!
Hope all of you are in good spirits with plenty of fine teas on hand to enjoy with family and friends. This time of year, gives us the chance to reflect on what is truly important. The gift of family and friends - the importance of these special people in our lives both near and far. It’s a time to remember what we have, rather than what we do NOT have. We are grateful that we have enough to shelter and nourish our little family. We are grateful to you who share our passion for tea and company. We believe tea is a path to finding peace and tranquility in our lives.
Happy Earth Tea and Leaf Tea Bar also had a great holiday season, thanks to all of you. Our expectations were met and then some. We hope those who were gifted our teas, enjoyed them as they are always chosen with care.
LEAF gets a second location
For the new year, we have some big news to share today. We are set to open a second brick-and-mortar location in the Rochester, NY area! It will be in Eastview Mall, right in the space where Teavana used to be located. Initially, we will only offer retail from the location with plans to introduce tea service later. We are scheduled to open the doors by end of this month!
One immediate result of this move will be an expansion our line of tea and tea ware. You will see many more teas and tea ware being added in the coming weeks and months. By the way, thank you for the positive response to the addition of Pu-erh we launched last month. Our bar is constantly busy serving these complex and exciting teas.

It's getting hot out there. It's only June and we have a rare heat advisory out today. One of the things you can do to stay cool and energized is make yourself a iced coconut matcha latte. Its a very easy recipe to follow. (Check out the video at the end).
It's getting warm and toasty out there. Guess what's it time for? Iced Tea!!!
Let me share with you today a very easy method of making iced tea. It is a method we use at Leaf Tea Bar. It is a very easy way to make iced tea this way. There is no need to wait for the tea to cool, and you can make this practically with any tea. I love it with Darjeeling first flushes and other lighter delicate teas.
