My Wednesday Wanderings took me to Lodi the other day. I was excited to see that there was a tea place I had not yet been too.
This place is so quaint and cute. Books and tea how great is that?
They also sell some pastries.
I decided to try the Pumpkin Pie Chai Latte. The lady who worked there was super friendly and helpful.
The also have a nice tea menu. I love that and don's see that too often in a coffee shop.
The store walls are full of books. It set up really nice.
I love the way they use the scrabble pieces to show the book sections.
This coffee/tea shop is attached to an antique store.
This little downtown area of Lodi is really cute. I think I have only been downtown once, but I look forward to going again. I enjoyed the tea and the antiques.
I gave the Pumpkin Pie Chai Latte 4 out of 5 cups. I thought the price was good- less than $5. Also this was a powered chai and very good. I enjoyed the pumpkin pie flavor, it was not over powering or fake tasting.
After I got some tea I went to the Lodi Outlet Mall. I won a $25 gift card to Lots of Knots Ceramic store.
I had a blast. I went to the outlet and got Chinese food and then set up shop. It took around 3 hours to paint the truck. It reminds me of when I was a kid. After I used the gift card this only cost me $6. What a deal. I picked up what I wanted to paint, then picked the paint, used their brushes. They sprayed it to finish and gave me the lights. What a fun project. If I go again I may take some of my girlfriends and make an evening of it.
