At this intimate gathering elites got up close and personal with acclaimed local mixologist Michelle Tham as she stirred up a trini-tea of cocktail creations all night long. Crafted with tea-infused syrups, yelpers tried the: Mo’Teato, Lomi Lomi Tea-ki Tiki, and Me Love Oolong Time. No steeping required.

While sipping, guests noshed on creative canapés made by L-Eat Express. Impressively, all the edibles were tea-inspired, with Black Tea Smoked Duck Breast, a Chai Tea Rice Pudding Arancini, Green Tea Popcorn, and fruit skewers drizzled in Red Velvet Rooibos Syrup. Now that's ingenui-tea.
