New Specialty Tea Shop in Clear Lake

The Tea Mistress, LLC is a new specialty purveyor of specialty gourmet tea, coffee, chocolate, teaware, tiny teapot jewelry and tea accessories. On Sunday, January 8th, a special tea tasting event is taking place in the shop. This event is open to the public to sample teas with a small suggested donation, which goes to support the Lone Star Houston Tea Festivall.

Amanda Vermillion is the owner of this unique shop. She holds a Tea Mastery Certification from the American Tea Masters Association and a New World Tea Certification from I-TEI. Amanda has extensive event planning expertise and is available for speaking engagements, tea tastings, tea and food pairings and small tea parties. She also provides consulting services and tea classes for restaurants and their staff.

Tea offers a number of health benefits. It contains antioxidants and has less caffeine than coffee. Tea may reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke, while helping to speed up the metabolism and aid with weight loss. While green and black teas do have some caffeine, herbals such as rooibos, mint and chamomile are entirely caffeine free.

Location: 17000 El Camino Real, Suite 102B, Houston (Clear Lake). For more information, visit, or call 832-703-0823. See ad, page 26 in our online issue.
