In the past 3 years, while construction was going on, I was also doing some “construction” with my kitchen and food project.

Here are my choices for tea offerings, the world is well represented, I must say.



Tisane and Herbal Teas from Leaves & Flowers.


Green Teas (matcha & genmaicha and sencha) and Oolongs from Teance Fine Teas in Berkeley.


French, of course, from Nina’s in Paris. My favorites were their Earl Grey and Mon Secret.

And more rare teas, from, where else but Rare Tea Co in London.

I am a tea drinker but not to worry, we will be having single-origin coffees too and Richard’s favorite coffee brand, Illy.
