It is always a pleasure hosting special events at Sophia Center. This past Sunday, friends gathered for a tea tasting while enjoying Japanese sweets, chocolate cupcakes, and other delectable things to nibble. Stories and laughter flooded the room as we learned about the processing of different teas and their health benefits. Everyone was given a gift of tea named “Clouds and Mist”. A raffle was also held and the winners took home a variety of teas.
