Tea 'n Talk and Dinner: An Evening with Tea Author, James Norwood Pratt

Do you want to learn more about tea, its past, and how it fits into today's world and cultures?

 

Then come on out to T-Buds and hear from renowned tea author, James Norwood Pratt.

 

It will be a casual evening, with opportunity to hear from him, ask him questions and have him sign your copy of his latest book, "The Ultimate Tea Lover's Treasury". 

For more information about Mr. Pratt and his book, check out http://jamesnorwoodpratt.com/books/index.html

 

After this chat, all attendees will partake in an intriguing and tea-full 3-course meal, consisting of various dishes made with tea (including a salad, an entrée and a dessert).  Information and recipes regarding this meal will be provided by chef, Andrew Muto, who will be present that evening.

    Hello, I just found out we have to pre-book and pay. I will do that this weekend. Thanks,
    Cheryl :)

      Reserved and Paid!

    Jul 11, 10:30 am Update: There are only 6 spots left.

    • Amy

      It's sounds very interesting and very reasonably priced.

      July 12, 2013

    • Lisa

      I agree, Amy! From my past professional and personal experience, such as event with such a high-level speaker should cost at least $100.00. This event is a once in a life-time serious bargain. I wonder if I could slip out of the wedding reception and attend. :) LOL

    I like all these members who have pre-registered as per my event instructions! Fabulous! I wish I could give you all free-tea-bonouses!

      On behalf of Amy and I--Thanks T-Buds deserves a "high-five" too for putting together such a fabulous event. I hope they do more (nudge, nudge). If you (or Anita), t-blog this event, Dana, let me know as unfortunately I have to miss the event as I will be eating and boggeying at a wedding that day/evening.

      July 11, 2013

    • Dana

      I am indeed planning on blogging the event! I'll send you a link :)

    For sure, maybe I will go to T-buds and pay them there.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
