Hi, we're Gail and Norm at the Back Porch Garden Wine and Tea Bar. Our Philosophy is "Enjoy life to its fullest, and treat people the way you would want to be treated".
We listened to our customer and have created a fun, friendly, relaxing, atmosphere at the wine and tea bar to enjoy conversation, choose from 70 wonderful loose-leaf iced and herbal teas and taste our wonderful "close to" organic wine that we offer by sample cup, glass or by the bottle for retail. Our teas are "Top Shelf" and have been suggested by our customers over the past six years. They are of the highest quality from around the world and about 65% of our tea selection is organic. Our unique wines come from the wonderful "Murielle Winery" located in Clearwater, Florida and are as close to organic as we can find. We have the unique Tropical, Traditional and Vintners Series that make up approximately eighteen different wines to choose from. The grapes are mainly from California, Washington State and Canada. And by the way, Canada is the leader in the production of "Ice Wine".
Located among the many unique gift shoppes in the Historical Heritage Village of downtown Crystal River, Florida, we offer you the opportunity to visit one of the best-kept secrets for unique Shoppes on the coast of West Central Florida, also known as the "Nature Coast" of Florida. To Your Health: Researchers from several countries have presented evidence that suggests that black teas, green teas and oolong teas, have a protective capability against oral, lung, colon and other cancers. Green teas especially, with more than thirty polyphenols, have a unique beneficial effect on the human system. These polyphenols are also found in fruits and vegetables and act as antioxidants like vitamin C, E, and beta carotene and may reduce serum cholesterol and the risk of heart disease and stroke.
