SCCF to host tea tasting
Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation volunteer Dee Serage-Century will host an informal tea tasting on Dec. 19 at 11 a.m. at the SCCF Native Landscape and Garden Center on Sanibel.
Participants will have the opportunity to taste five species of culinary basil, plus tea, grown at the Bailey Homestead. One example will be the yaupon holly and roselle tea; the native yaupon holly is the only North Americas plant containing caffeine, and roselle is also known as the Florida cranberry.
There will also be plants available for purchase.
No reservations are required.
The Native Landscapes and Garden Center is at 1300 Periwinkle Way.
