Unique Palmetto tea room grand opening set Nov. 3

PALMETTO -- The grand opening of the ArTea Store tea room at 414 10th Ave. W. in the heart of the Historic District will be from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Nov. 3.

The grand opening will include free samples of loose-leaf teas for the first 50 guests between 10 a.m.-11 a.m..

Mayor Shirley Groover Bryant will cut the ribbon at 10:30 a.m.

ArTea Store was launched by two local women who favored two different specialties: local art and loose-leaf tea.

By collaborating these two passions, ArTea Store was born. The tea room will serve more than 100 loose-leaf teas and promote 10 local artists. ArTea Store will also offer classes, workshops and space for local networking groups.
