Welcome to Tea Time Tales! It's a blog of daily happenings in the life of a tea room owner. Sometimes strange, sometimes wonderful, always interesting. The variety of people I meet and the things they say and do never ceases to amaze me. So, make yourself a nice cup of tea, sit back, relax and enjoy!
Also, we cordially invite you to respond with your own Tea Time Tales. We'd love to hear about interesting teas, intriguing tales, and special times with special friends you've had over tea.

Love a Local Business!
Help us win a $25,000 or $50,000 Hiring Grant!
Vote (you can only vote once) for us and tell your friends who are also fans of tea and our shop. Search for Elaine's Tea Shoppe with Toledo, OH as the location. We need as many votes as possible in this voting period: October 1-December 3, 2010.
This economy has been brutal on all businesses, but especially on the very small businesses. I can no longer afford to hire any employees, and if I get sick, I have to close the shop! That's no way to live! So, help us earn a Hiring Grant through Intuit, which would enable us to get through this recession with a little bit of help.
Elaine is grateful to all those who will take the time and vote for Elaine's Tea Shoppe! I know how busy everyone is, but we must remember to take time to help our friends once in awhile! Please help us if you can--it only takes a couple of minutes.
