Greenport Tea Company for Tea Lovers, on the North Fork of Long Island

Greenport Tea company

Tea lovers unite and add the Greenport Tea Company to your list of places to stop when shopping in Greenport, Long Island.  Once a tea lover, always a tea lover and Greenport Tea Company has everything that you need to enjoy a great cup of tea.  Zagat calls them the “gem” of an afternoon tearoom and says they bring a “touch of England” to the bay.  This is easy to do since one of the owners came from England and knows how to serve a great cup to tea.

The shelves of the Greenport Tea Company are filled with over 50 jars of tea, all dedicated to the pleasure of steeping and drinking first-rate loose-leaf tea.  They even have a dessert tea called Sweet Endings, which was blended by the owners and has scents of caramel, chocolate, and vanilla.  Perhaps you may wish to have a little lemon curd or enjoy High Tea for two?  Once you have tried their tea and returned home, fear not!  They offer on-line shopping on their website and you can replenish your supply of tea or enhance your tea brewing accessories.

At any time during the year, but especially during the winter months, this is a delightful way to spend an afternoon in Greenport on the North Fork of Long Island.

We at Arbor View House also serve tea in the afternoon for our guests.  Come join us here and at the Greenport Tea Company.

Ice Skating in Greenport, Long Island

January 5th, 2010 by wilfredjoseph

Now that the Holidays are over, it may be time for a romantic winter getaway to Greenport, Long Island and enjoy ice skating.  During your romantic getaway we encourage you to visit Mitchell Park which is located on four acres along the waterfront of the Village of Greenport.  Mitchell Park is described as the “jewel” of the Village of Greenport and includes an observation deck and harbor walk and also offers a 60 slip marina.

While activities at Mitchell Park vary according to the season, this is the time of year to enjoy ice skating!  When I think of ice skating, I envision the romance and grace of skating and just how truly beautiful it is to watch and enjoy.  The ice skating rink at Mitchell Park is open daily and they offer skate rentals for guests without skates.  Also, if you have not been skating in a long time or have never skated before, they also offer private lessons.

After an afternoon or evening of skating, return to the Arbor View House to enjoy some afternoon delights along with a relaxing aromatherapy bath and cozy fire.  Or, take advantage of your romantic escape with a couples massage.  Then slip into your fluffy bathrobe and cuddle in for the evening.  You will have to agree that this is romance at its finest!

Greenport Long Island Holiday Festivities

December 7th, 2009 by wilfredjoseph

Greenport Long Island is busy with Holiday Festivities and we hope you can join us!  The Holiday Tree has been lit for the Holiday Season and the town of Greenport is bustling with Holiday cheer.  How best to start the Holidays, than a little shopping in Greenport.  During the weekends in December, shoppers will listen as carolers will entertain them with traditional Holiday songs as they weave amidst the many stores.  This is sure to get you in the Holiday spirit!

On December 13th, Santa makes his way to town, of course with Mrs. Claus along his side.  They are scheduled to arrive at 2 P.M. and there will be a special parade to welcome his arrival.  Bag pipers, floats, clowns, and candy will help to welcome Santa to Greenport!  After you have calmed down from Santa’s arrival, the Lighting of the menorah will take place in Mitchell Park at 5 P.M.

Among our other favorites are the Holiday House Tour, Wine Tasting at Greenport Wine and Spirits, Walking Tour, and the New Year’s Eve Celebration.  Make sure to check out the Holiday Festivitiesof Greenport and make sure not to miss out on other festivities that may be just what you have been looking for!

Happy Holidays!
