Seven Cups could be your cup of tea

From 4-8 p.m. on Saturday, September 13, Seven Cups will host a grand opening celebration with a traditional Lion Dance, a Gong Fu demonstration, free samples of Chinese moon cakes, traditional Chinese music and a tea tasting with Zhuping Hodge, a certified tea master from China who's a co-owner of the Seven Cups in Tucson. Denver's Seven Cups is the first franchise venture by that operation; it opened in June at 1882 South Pearl Street. Owner Greg Fellman calls it “the only authentic Chinese tea house in Denver,” and says Seven Cups carries mostly organically certified teas coming from reputable sources in China.

I'll report back after Saturday's event. If you can't make that, Seven Cups hosts free tea tastings at 3 p.m. every Friday. For information, call 303-777-CUPS or go to wwwsevencupsdenver.com. -- Tyler Nemkov
