Darjeeling Second Flush 2014 has arrived!

Happy Earth Tea - Second Floor - The Hungerford
Happy Earth Tea - The Hungerford

 

Second Flush Arya Ruby is prized by Darjeeling tea enthusiasts for its rich muscatel and a floral-fruity complexity.

DRY LEAF: Very stylish leaves that are long, wiry, tippy and well rolled. The appearance of the tea reflects the care in the manufacture. It has a nice bloom and is clean without any stems and flakes. The dry leaves are fragrant with notes of muscatel, caramel, apricot and some spice.

INFUSION: A coppery infusion with a greenish hue still present in some leaves. Because of the partial oxidization, there is a touch of first flush crispness to the tea. The nose is rich in muscatel, hints of caramel, apricot and pepper. [Read more...]

Prayer Flag Workshop

Join Susan at Create Art 4 Good (suite #201) - The Hungerford

Join Susan at Create Art 4 Good (suite #201) for aPrayer Flag workshop August 18th from 1pm

Prayer flags date back thousands of years, to pre-Buddhist Tibet. Traditionally primary colors were used on cloth. Symbols and writings embodied the elements – earth, water, fire, air & space. The flags were used for healing ceremonies.

This workshop invites you to create your own prayer flags. We will create on pre-stitched cloth and use a more contemporary mixed media approach to this spiritual art. NO experience is required- it is only necessary to bring your sense of adventure with you (and a bunch of your friends) What might you create a prayer flag for? Your intent might be for peace in the world, a burden on your heart or simply for light in the world.

Gather your friends and CREATE @ Create Art 4 Good Studios- all supplies are included, however if you have something special you would like to add to your flag, please feel free to bring it with you. You will have the opportunity to create your prayer flag.

It’s a Bead Dig!

Francesca DeCaire Flamework Bead Box2Francesca DeCaire (studio #216) has black wooden box full of flamework beads for $3 each. The regular price range of the beads when they are not in the box can be anywhere from $3–$25, heck, sometimes even more. Don’t miss the first dig, Wednesday July 2, 12–4pm. Click to see the full schedule here.

“Why would I put a bead that is worth $25 in a box marked $3? The answer is simple really. The bead is lonely. It’s been sitting in my drawer waiting for me to do something with it for too long. It’s just a simple way of letting go. The box is brimming to the top! I’ve included dozens of owls.

So anyhow I’m really in the hopes that a few of you will show up for this special. There is no better sound than the gentle sifting of beads that have been in the dark for too long.”
