Tea Tasting at the Warner Library

We had a grand turnout on Monday evening despite the continuing rain and drizzle. Attendees included adults and children, men and woman, regular customers and new friends.  Our hosts at the Library, particularly Cassandra Troini, were gracious and accommodating and helped us get organized. We featured four Teas:
