Well the Independant Newspaper/Hampton Daze Magazine have collaborated again just 6 months after the ever-so-succesfull “Spa Soiree”, an industry networking event held at the Bay Street Theatre in March, to put together a Tea party for the town. Being hosted in the gorgeous victorian courtyard of the Red Horse Plaza, the Tea party will have fresh flowers, crumpets, mini cupcakes, macaroons, and special blends of delicious cold tea & sugar cane by an elite brand called Chambre De Sucre! You will see these special teas in first class flights (literally), and in landmarks like The Plaza Hotel, The founder of Chambre de Sucre is Lisa Kunizaki, who has an incredible story behind developing this beautfully packaged brand of teas. Many teas are named after family members having ingredients native to her Japanese and Hawaiian culture while her sugars are only grown in Okinawa Japan.
