Destination Tea Notes: Last summer, Lindsay Mason of Becca’s Well in Lawrenceville, teamed with mother-daughter caterers Ginny Hall and Tammy Johnson of Nosh and Nibble to begin offering themed monthly afternoon teas. It was a joy to again experience the gourmet creations of Tammy and Ginny, formerly of Norcross’ Ivy Tea House. Their French Afternoon Tea menu delighted us with one delicious morsel after the next. Guests are seated at tables placed at the back of the shop and in a quiet event space, where our one change would have been more comfortable chairs. The Mason family also owns Liberty Books next door, whose aisles of books add charm to the teatime setting, fitting because Becca’s Well is named for the fictitious medieval community in Aiden Song, a novel written by Lindsay’s husband Zack Mason. You’ll even spot a well in the market, where we happily shopped the large selection of Rishi loose leaf teas on display. As Lindsay explained her vision to stock the market with artisan and local goods, she told us, “I wanted to create someplace that I’m happy to be.” We can attest, that’s the kind of energy that’s catching!
