Announcing our new cupcake pop-up shop in Oakland every Friday!
Our new collaboration with Tea Here Now in Oakland confirms it: tea and cupcakes are a perfect pairing!
Every Friday from 1 to 5 p.m. we'll be selling our cupcakes at Andrea's cute tea shop - we'll feature several seasonal flavors and old favorites, including some gluten free and vegan options. For everyone who wants an Angel Cakes cupcake but doesn't want to buy a whole dozen - here's your chance!
Last Friday we had an experimental first pop-up shop, and it was awesome! We had vanilla, chocolate, red velvet, salted caramel, Old Fashioned (bourbon, orange zest, and a brandied cherry), vegan coconut, gluten free/vegan lemon raspberry and chocolate, and raspberry. We definitely did not bring enough cupcakes, and we will be sure to stock up this coming week -- though I'm sure our most popular flavors (Old Fashioned, red velvet, and salted caramel) will always go fast.
Tea Here Now is the work of Andrea Tyler and friends, and opened on Webster Street in November 2012. Her shop features 20 teas, including black, green, and herbal as well as many premium specialty flavors. Since I've been spending a lot of time there, I appreciate Andrea's knowledge and the care she takes in selecting and brewing each cup. I recently discovered the aptly named "Big Hibiscus" tea that is amazingly complex, with a gorgeous dark maroon color. She also has salads and snacks, and opens at 7:30 a.m. on weekdays.
Come down and visit us every Friday for tea and cake at Tea Here Now, 1721 1/2 Webster Street, Oakland, conveniently located two blocks from the 19th Street BART Station.
A great way to end each week, right?
