New York City Tea Time Adventure-MATBA does Tea in The City!
July 17, 2017
Darlene Perry and Jo Johnson have put together a tremendous walking tour and afternoon tea itinerary for the summer meeting.   

It's count down time........MATBA takes on the Big Apple on Monday, July 17th! If you haven't registered for this informative tea tour yet, you have a few hours left. Come be inspired and take back some fresh new ideas for your tea business. There is sure to beauty around every corner.......


10:00 am - We will gather at Radiance Tea Room, Radiance Midtown West, 158 West 55th Street, NY 10019 (between 6th and 7th). This is a traditional Taiwanese tea shop with a wonderful selection of tea, food, tea books and tea-ware.
11:00 am - From there we will venture over to T2 at Rockefeller Center, 620 Fifth Avenue (entrance on 50th Street). A chic and modern tea shop with plenty of eye candy.
These two stops will provide opportunities to indulge, shop and most importantly take in the different marketing options, gift selections and display features of two drastically different tearooms & shops!
12:00 - 2:00 pm We will trot on over to Baccarat Tea Room at 28 West 53rd Street, NY 10019. Here we will enjoy an exquisite tea room in a crystal palace. This is a top of the line New York tea experience. A special Tea Service provided just for MATBA. Please note: this is a special tea service being offered to MATBA on 7/17/17. The tea sommelier will share a little history about Baccarat with the group and guide us through the tea service. Due to the size of our group, this will probably be served buffet style. (Maximum - 25)

2:00pm - We will bid farewell for the day, but we know some will want to go back and spend more time at either or both of the earlier stops or just take some time to explore on your own.
