Tea and Sympathy

| April 8, 2015 | Parties

Miami’s well-heeled social circles were most intrigued when they received the invite to the opening of Small Tea Co., a new modern teahouse in Coral Gables. Such intrigue worked rather well for owner Daniel Benoudiz, who welcomed a slew of foodies and gala regulars to his establishment and labor of love. Guests couldn’t get enough of the venue’s scent station, where they were able to see, smell and touch each tea (84 selections and counting) before choosing their brew. Among those tipping the kettle were Jonathan and Criselda Breene, Susanne Birbragher, Alexa Wolman, Hernan Arriaga and Gio Gutierrez. Many cups and macarons later, attendees went home and a new culinary favorite was born. –Photography by Manny Hernandez & World Red Eye
