Hi Leslie,

The Grace Baptist Church (Mt Vernon, NY) Women’s Ministry Intergenerational Tea (on May 27, 2017) would not have been the same without you and your expertise!

I am so thankful for your thorough overview of the four types of tea and the origination of tea time.  The help with the menu, and the Obama 44 Blend tea that was in such high demand! Oh and how could I forget about the gift bags!

The ladies of all ages had a wonderful time, left with some new information and a few treats.

I cannot thank you enough for your service!

Looking forward to working together again in the new year.

Dear Leslie,

Thanks for the amazing service you and your staff rendered at the fundraiser last month!

Everyone commented on how marvelous the food presentations were and my family and I appreciated how well the staff left the kitchen clean after the event!

We look forward to working with you again soon!

Happy holidays!

Karen Smith

Thank you, we had a wonder time and enjoyed your Tea Service. Hope to utilize your services in the future!


Be well,

Leslie! Thank you so much. I hold Lola’s close to my heart. It was my spot! I did work there; bonded with family and friends there; learned about tea there! You created a space that was warm and welcoming. I have yet to find another teahouse with such an impact. – Christina T.
