We are extremely pleased with the Brownie troop’s success from this Holiday Market event... and we look forward to partnering with them again in the future for their fundraising needs.

The Tea Spot, Boulder’s philanthropic tea company, helped Girl Scouts Brownie Troop 4382 raise nearly $500 for their troop at the Boulder Farmer’s Market Holiday Market and gift show in Longmont, Colorado. Alongside volunteer employees from The Tea Spot, Brownie Troop 4382 sold tins of handcrafted whole leaf tea and Tuffy tea steepers by The Tea Spot. "We are extremely pleased with the Brownie troop’s success from this Holiday Market event," said Maria Uspenski, President and CEO of The Tea Spot. "Our associates had a wonderful time working with the Brownies and their troop leaders, and we look forward to partnering with them again in the future for their fundraising needs."

Girl Scouts Brownies are girls in grades 2-3 who work together, earn Girl Scout Brownie Awards, and explore their community. Friendship, fun, and age-appropriate activities begin at the Girl Scout Brownie meeting and move out to the community and wider world. Troop money-earning is vital to Girl Scouting. For the troop, it means assuming its share of responsibility within Girl Scouting and in the community. For the girls, it offers learning budgeting, goal-setting, public and customer relations, and good business practices.

Brownie Troop 4382 sold The Tea Spot’s Boulder Blues and Red Rocks loose leaf teas at the holiday market fund-raiser.

Boulder Blues is The Tea Spot’s best-selling green tea blend, handcrafted with wild strawberry and rhubarb. This tea yields a bright liquor with a luxurious aroma and brisk, vivid flavor. Boulder Blues green tea makes an ideal accompaniment to dark chocolate.

Red Rocks is a powerful blend of naturally caffeine-free South African Rooibos, vanilla flavoring and almond bits. This blend has a most alluring fragrance and exceptionally smooth taste. Rooibos contains almost no tannin and very high levels of antioxidants, as well as minerals including iron, potassium, copper, zinc and fluoride.

The Brownies also sold Tuffy Tea Steepers alongside the loose leaf teas. The Tuffy Steeper is a silicone tea infuser that provides an easy solution for those looking to savor quality teas with little fuss or mess. This expandable loose tea infuser can accommodate even the largest full-leaf teas. The lid keeps tea warm while steeping. Inverted, it serves as a saucer to hold the infuser, removed once brewing is complete.

The Boulder Farmer’s Market Holiday Market was a two-day event held on December 3rd and 4th, 2011. It was held at the Boulder County fairgrounds in Longmont, Colorado. Shopping at the Holiday Market is an enjoyable activity that brings the greater Boulder community together for food and friendship. It is an educational opportunity for many, in that young and old alike can learn directly from farmers and other experts about growing practices, crop seasons, and cooking tips.
