Jade Summit Fine Tea & Antiques recently opened its doors at 236 Commercial Street in downtown Nevada City. The tea shop is open Thursday-Sunday 12-6 to purchase some of the finest Chinese tea with varieties of puerh, white, green and black teas. In addition to tea and antiques owner MJ Greenmountain will be hosting private Chinese gongfu tea services for small groups by appointment only. He hopes to create a cultural center for the tea drinking community. “We have some of the finest tea on the planet, I sought out the best tea that I like and can afford and it’s nice to be able to pass it onto others.” The tea service will range in price from $20-$100 per person and offer an education, cultural experience and an opportunity to enjoy drinking a living antique. For more information about Jade Summit check out their Facebook page or website. Thanks to MJ I have a $20 gift certificate to offer up to one InnSide Nevada City blog reader, please post a comment on this post and I’ll draw the winner on Friday, June 27th.
