It’s been quite a while since my last newsletter and I hope this finds you well. TeaLeafs is gearing up for the holiday season and I have brought in 3 new teas for your enjoyment!

  • Chestnut Black is roasty, smooth, full bodied and flavored with roasted Chestnuts
  • Jasmine Oolong has Orchard Oolong notes combined with floral Jasmine and light fruit notes to finish
  • White Chocolate Puerh is hearty, aromatic, smooth and slightly sweet with a hint of chocolate decadence

Looking for something fun? Something different? Stocking stuffer? Check out the new varieties of Owl’s Brew that I have added. I now carry Grapefruit Collins, Mulling Spices, and Salted Caramel Toddy along with Coco-Lada, Pink & Black, The Classic and White & Vine.  Owl’s Brew provides the at-home-entertainer an effortless way to offer craft cocktails. Owl’s Brew is intended to be paired with a variety of spirits. The assortment of flavors can be mixed with vodka, tequila, rum, whiskey, gin, or champagne. It can be served on the rocks or shaken: “2 Parts Brew, 1 Part Booze”.

Fred & Friends Infusers have always been a big hit. They are comical in how you steep your tea.  Big Brew the elephant and Cozy Cup Mittens are the newest arrivals at TeaLeafs to add to Manatea, Mr. Tea, Tea Bones, and Slow Brew Sloth.

One of the most popular gift items TeaLeafs carries are the Made in the USA Handwarmer Mugs. There are a variety of Right-Handed mugs available in different glazes. They tend to go very quickly so please keep that in mind. I don’t want you to be disappointed!

Available on the front counter are miniature Honey Bears filled with local Finger Lakes Wildflower Honey.  “Secret Santa”, “Merry Christmas”, “Happy Holidays”, “Season’s Greetings” and “Happy Hanukkah” are just a few of the sayings available. If you would like to personalize some bears for your office or party, please let me know. I will do my best to accommodate you.

As many of you know, I carry a large assortment of ForLife Design products. I am very happy with ForLife and this year their newest products are 11oz and 18oz Dew Mugs with Infusers in a mate finish. Very attractive and very functional!

Polish Pottery always makes a wonderful gift and TeaLeafs has a nice variety of designs.

I love watching my tea brew and using a glass teapot is a perfect way to brew a few cups at a time. Glass teapots are also perfect for steeping Blooming Artisan Teas where the flowers bloom as they steep. TeaLeafs has a variety of Artisan flowers and flavors available.

If you’re looking for a Matcha Bowl, TeaLeafs carries them! We also carry Bamboo Whisks, Bamboo Spoons and a wonderful drinking Matcha Supreme.

Buffalo has so much to offer and so many wonderful places to visit that I now carry Buffalo Coasters and Buffalo note cards. The coasters have a cork backing so they won’t slip or scratch. A perfect gift for Buffalonians and to remind the out of towner how special Buffalo is.

Thin and crispy Moravian Caramel with Sea Salt Dipped in Chocolate, Meyer Lemon, Mint Dipped Chocolate, Spicy Ginger, Toasted Coconut and Toasted Coconut Dipped Chocolate cookies are delicious and make a great hostess gift or addition to a gift basket.  And speaking of Gift Baskets, if you are in need of a basket I will be more than happy to design one for you.  You pick out what you want or give me a price point and I’ll do the work!

No matter what holiday you celebrate, I want to wish each and every one a very Happy and Healthy Holiday Season. May the New Year bring good health, peace and happiness.

Thank you for your friendship and support. I wouldn’t be here without you.
