Well, it’s time to move on to the next sport not to mention the next season. Daylight savings is around the corner in early March and soon we will ordering fish sandwiches from the area churches and various organizations. Paczki (pronunciation is poonch-key , or better yet, “I’d like a dozen.” are already showing up in the local bakeries and our attention will soon be turning to affairs of the heart on Valentine’s Day and soon after, Easter.
Speaking of chocolate, The Stillroom Gift & Tea shop has Harney & Sons Chocolate and Roses tea as well as Chocolate tea in stock. OMG! If you have not had either of these dessert teas and you are a chocolate lover and have never had a dessert tea, this is a great place to start. The aroma alone is just like a milk chocolate bar! A touch of milk and a sprinkle of sugar, this is a calorie counter’s dream. Don’t deprive yourself of this chocolate treat. The Stillroom Harney & Sons chocolate tea and Valentine’s Blend tea are available by the 4 oz. decorative tin or the 1 oz. package. It is a loose black tea. These tea treats are available until Easter and just like the bunny, poofkah, they are gone. Paris loose black tea is also back in stock.
If you are not familiar with Harney & Sons teas, it is important for me to tell you that it is a family owned top of the line tea company here in the north east. So, through purchasing this tea, you are essentially helping the economy locally as well as this top notch tea company. The Stillroom carries a limited amount of loose tea and Harney is the only one we sell. Available in Rose, Chocolate, Paris and Valentines’s Chocolate and Roses.
In the meantime, the shop is slowly being restocked with our handmade, organic catnip pillows, lavender by the ounce, lavender essential oil, hand-sewn organic lavender sachets and a colorful line of greeting cards.
New to the shop and coming soon will be our really terrific Yoga DVD developed for senior citizens, people recovering from injuries or anyone who is new to exercise. The main reason I love this DVD is because as I have gotten older, the one thing I have been noticing is my balance is really out of whack. That is the one thing that we lose as we get older and so far this Yoga for the rest of us is helping me gain strength and balance. For once this is something I can really get behind and be excited about. I love it so much I decided to bring it in to the shop to make it available to you. I’m addicted.
Also, The Stillroom Teas are now available in a basic limited assortment in Saxonburg at Mimi’s Memories on Main Street. Here you will find an assortment of black, green and herbal teas as well as tea accessories and a few vintage pieces. Harney & Sons loose black teas are also in stock.
The full Stillroom Tea shop is available inside of the most awesome Diamond Antiques and Gifts. Boasting a great group of 26 vendors we are located at 311 East Sixth Avenue in Tarentum. We are located right next to Massart’s Historic Diner, across the street from the fabulous Tarentum Station, up the street a block from Seita’s Jeweler’s and a hop skip and a jump away from Gatto’s and the Tarentum Bridge. Don’t forget to hit the Praha for those Funzi Wings and generous helpings of bar food faves. New to Tarentum? Check out the one and only Koski’s Corner. They are a full service coffee shop with a complete coffee menu and a growing selection of wonderful treats including ice cream. Pretty cool. Looking for all of the above? Find Diamond Antiques centrally located in the middle of the business district and under the black and white striped awning. Diamond Antiques and Gifts is closed Monday and Tuesday (restocking days for the shop) and is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10-5 and Sunday from 12-5.
It is tea weather so come on in to Diamond Antiques and search for something just for the sake of getting out of the winter doldrums and treat yourself to a fine package of tea while you are in there! Nothing like a hot cup of tea to drown our sorrows in after the Steeler’s loss. I knew those Patriot’s would win. Oh well. Go Pens!
