Blu Tea to Celebrate Grand Opening

Nellie Ackerman is working hard to prepare her Blu Tea Company boutique for its grand opening this weekend. The doors will open at 9am and close at 5 Saturday and Sunday, with a book signing by local author Jill Starling from 12:30 to 3 both days, and appearances by artist Jenn Jenny.

Starling, a resident of Colonie, is the author of St. Agnes’ Place. Part of the proceeds from the sale of the novel will go to LOVE 146, an organization that combats the sex trafficking of children.

The boutique, located at 111 Park Ave. across from Faldoni’s Delicatessen, will specialize in selling locally made products, such as handbags, clothing, art, and, of course, tea. A ribbon cutting accompanied the shop’s “soft opening” on Aug. 17.

This weekend, visitors can expect a sampling of the shop’s desserts, salads, and teas, though the menu will be limited. In the future, Ackerman plans to introduce specialty teas to support local organizations like the library and community center.

After opening weekend, the shop will be open Wednesday through Sunday, 9am to 5pm. You can find the company on facebook at facebook.com/BluTea. Their website is currently under construction.
