We shouldn't pretend to be a classy tea place when we clearly are not capable of being that, any more than we are capable of serving proper good coffee.
Sorry Niel, I strongly disagree.
this is a negative attitude that underestimates the capabilities of our lovely volunteers.
We are capable of serving a good cup of tea. It's not hard.
We should strive to provide the best possible service to our coustomers with regards to tea and coffee. We run a cafe, after all.
Not pretendeng to be a classy tea place, but providing a good range of good teas. I think you will find that the profit margin on loose leaf is higher than on bags, and what Scoutt said.
I hereby volunteer to sort out a "tea menu", with brewing instructions incuded.
And to rejar and organise the tea shelf. If we agree, I will do so by the 10th of Nov.
as far as, teas strainers goes, yes, those nice Tea Pots with infusers incuded (like these)
would be nice, but might be seen as a an unesseccary expense.
otherwise a bunch more straners and we could realy do with a big box of Tea Spoons anyway.
we should keep a pot of spoons by the tea shelf.
Whist I am around for the next 6 weeks, I will offer a free weekly Coffee Training Session if people think its a good idea.
I think that one of the most valuable things that Forest does is offer people an opertunity to learn how to work in a cafe. These are basic cafe skills.
Thank you, and enjoy your tea.
