Ellen Leaf-Moore, Certified Tea Specialist & Educator of Fezziwig’s Marketplace in Lebanon, Illinios visited Vermont’s most romantic B&B, Inn Victoria. With perfect charm, Ellen introduced the guests of Inn Victoria to the best of the best in teas. To say the least, Ellen and her husband Tim were entertaining and a real joy to have as guests.
Can you imagine it? Traveling on business in the area, Ellen & Tim chose Inn Victoria to rest for the evening. At breakfast the next morning Ellen didn’t miss a beat in her love of teas. When I asked what type of tea she wanted for breakfast, Ellen pulled her very own specialty tea from her bag…..the tea lesson started from there. Needless to say, it was a delightful and entertaining breakfast. Ellen held guests captivated with her engaging tutorial and trial tea samples.
Fezziwig’s is located on the famous brick street in historic downtown Lebanon, Illinois. The store is named for the character in Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol. Dickens made his only overnight stay in Lebanon in 1842 where a chapter of his book American Notes was written. The following year Dickens wrote his beloved A Christmas Carol. Fezziwig was Scrooge’s employer as a youth.
