These magical teas, hot chocolate blends & complex coffee flavors from around the world can be consumed for both healing and pleasure. If you are not a coffee drinker you can make another tea or cocoa blend:) We will explore some history, have a few tastes, and then everyone will create and take home their own blends! Meets at the Nordland Library. CLOSE
