I’m excited to announce that, this weekend, we’re going to be working hard.

the Emmy goes to....While this statement may seem to be a bit odd, it is for good reason: this weekend we will be the official tea of the 2011 International Emmy Awards – for the second year in a row!

That’s right, they enjoyed the tea (ahem, and tea cocktails) so thoroughly last year that they invited us back for seconds!

This year one of my newest creations (which I promise to share the recipe for after the festivities are over) – the Peachy Oolong Bellini – is going to be the champagne toast to start the whole awards ceremony.

On top of that, we will have our very own lounge in the festival, dubbed the Emmy-Winning Tavalon Tea Lounge, were we will be serving up a handful of hot teas, our ever-popular Genius iced tea and, later on in the evenings, our SmarTEAni cocktail.

I am excited, nervous and honored!
