Penobscot Shores’ Enrichment Series continues with a “Talk and Tasting: Exploring the World of Tea” with the owner of The Treasured Leaf Tea Co. in Belfast on Wednesday, Feb. 28 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

In this “Tea: 101” in Pen Shores' Ocean House, tea shop owner Shelly Patten will encourage attendees to enter the cozy world of tea with all its comforting accessories and rituals. With Patten as the guide, expect to sample assorted teas and learn about the countries from which they come, the culture, the history, the health benefits and more.

Along with learning how to brew a proper pot of tea and the opportunity to sip on many different types of tea, attendees will enjoy refreshments prepared by Penobscot Shores’ chefs Diana and Charles designed to complement any respectable tea party.

In the case of inclement weather, this program will be rescheduled to the next day, Thursday, March 1.

With programs designed to educate, inspire and connect older adults, admission to all Penobscot Shores’ Enrichment Series programs is free, but registration is required. To sign up, please contact Penobscot Shores at 338-2332.
