"I am thrilled about the new location and being on the innovative new Gourmet floor, a terrific concept that has been beautifully designed by the Mart" says Beth Johnston owner of Teas Etc. "The fresh idea of combining various products on one floor, I believe, gives us access to a broader range of gourmet buyers that we might not have touched in a typical set up.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from Johnston, a highly sought after industry expert and taste a handful of rare, limited harvest teas.

The event takes place on Friday, January 9th, 5:30 7:30 pm, at their showroom - 8112A bldg. 2 west wing, 8th floor.
