five june giveaways!
By Patricia Belyea
This month Okan Arts is giving away five Steven Smith Teamaker Genmaicha Tea Sets—each with a 15-sachet carton of Rose City Genmaicha, a Steven Smith Teamaker teapot, and a pair of matching porcelain tea cups and saucers. Each giveaway is valued at $75.
Celebrating its tenth anniversary, Steven Smith Teamaker of Portland OR creates small batches of inspired tea blends. Steven Smith gained recognition around the globe for his tea expertise and sourcing as the co-founder of Stash Teas and the founder of Tazo. His latest enterprise, based out of an old blacksmith shop, uplifts tea to new level of imbibing delight. (Steven Smith died in 2015 and the company is led today by his wife, Kim.)
Rose City Genmaicha, saluting the Rose City of Portland, combines refreshing full-leaf Japanese sencha, nutty roasted rice (genmai), Mao Feng green tea, red and pink rose petals, natural flavors, and bergamot oil.
The tea’s blend number 1912 corresponds to the year Portland’s Peninsula Park Rose Garden was built.
The impeccable white teapot features a stainless steel lid embossed with STEVEN SMITH TEAMAKER and a no-drip spout. Sized for two cups, the teapot includes a custom mesh infuser for using with loose tea. Two white porcelain tea cups and saucers complete the set.
THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED. The winners are Pam N of Vancouver WA, Patricia A of Ann Arbor MI, Kristin E of Worley ID, Laraine S of Alameda CA, and Angela S of Centennial CO.
