A new new tea bar featuring more than 60 kinds of tea and tea-based drinks will host grand-opening ceremonies Saturday in Fair Oaks.
Nautilus Tea Company at 11771 Fair Oaks Blvd., in the Almond Orchard Shopping Center, will hold festivities from 1 to 3 p.m., with tea samples, refreshments and entertainment.
The business offers teas from local blenders but also from far-flung locales such as Sri Lanka and Nepal. It also will sell tea-related products and accessories.
Co-owner Mike Tallent describes the decor as apothecary shop meets Old West bar. This is not your grandmothers tea shop, said co-owner Tonja Tallent.
Regular store hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
