Citizen Staff Reports 12/04/12
The Henrico Historical Society has created three signature tea blends as part of its annual fundraising campaign. The teas – Henrico’s Coconut Almond, Brookland’s Summer Passion and Tuckahoe’s Walnut Green (pictured) – are available for purchase through the organization’s website, http://www.henricohistoricalsociety.org/shopping.html The c.ost is $6 for 15 gourmet tea bags.
Henrico’s Coconut Almond is a combination of sweet coconut and almond flakes and can be made as a hot or cold tea.
Brookland’s Summer Passion is a fruity, fresh and herbal tea that combines the flavors of passion fruit, pineapple and candied papaya.
Tuckahoe’s Walnut Green is a blend of crunchy walnut and pineapple-coconut almond flavors.
All purchases help support the Henrico Historical Society, which works to document, preserve and report about more than 400 years of Henrico history.

Team members (among them [from left] Chris Rufe, Melissa Abraham, Rick Naschold, and Micky Ogburn) completed a variety of repairs and home improvements ranging from painting and landscaping to cabinet installation and fence building.
“It was a privilege to be involved in this project," said club president Melissa Abraham. "The homeowner kept thanking the volunteers, but I think all of us would agree we are the ones who actually benefited. It was an opportunity to help a community member, fellowship with great people and improve our handyman skills." > Read more.
