Silk Road Adventurer's Afternoon Tea & Talk

A Tea-rrific Journey

In ye olden days, Western adventurers like Marco Polo had to mount up on camelback and journey far to the East if they wanted to learn more about the tea culture of China and how the leaf made its long way back to Europe. But you, you lucky 21st century human, only have to plonk down a handful of bills and journey to the Fragrant Leaf Tea Boutique in Nob Hill (3207 Silver SE) to do the same. And instead of saddle sores, you'll get a three course afternoon tea service, with samosas and Afghani meatballs among other delights, while attending a mini-lecture entitled "The Traveling Tea Leaf—Journey to the West." That, my friends, is progress. This all happens on Sunday, June 15. The tea tastings are scheduled for 1pm and 4pm, cost $33, and prior registration is required to attend. No walk-ins.
