Let us be your source for tea! We are not one of those trendy shops that come and go. This story began 19 years ago and we are confident, with that much experience, we can satisfy all your tea needs.
Our vision when we opened Virtuous Teas was to provide a place where tea enthusiasts and novices alike could experience the pleasures of tea in a friendly and knowledgeable environment.
Today, we continue to supply the superb quality and huge variety that so many of our customers have come to expect from us, whilst maintaining the ‘personal touch’ of a small, independently owned local business.
Whether you’re an expert or new to the world of tea, our staff will be happy to assist you in discovering the right tea for you, and with over 200 varieties there’s always something new to try! –https://www.facebook.com/Virtuous-Teas

Blue Ribbon BBQ
1375 Washington Street | West Newton, MA
Our barbecue is the result of passion-driven cooks who have spent years around the fire pits perfecting the meats. The same passion applies to the long list of side dishes and desserts, giving a grandma’s kitchen flavor to the whole place. We share this experience with each guest and a simple nod of approval from a satisfied customer is what it’s all about. Nearly all of our menu items are scratch-made in our kitchen on a daily basis. We invite you to join in the flavor revolution – from our rotating daily specials to the downright delicious classics – there is something for everyone. ~Blue Ribbon BBQ

Upscale Italian food in Nonantum
Had the pleasure of being part of Friends & Family…the food was beyond delicious, ample portions & nicely plated. There were 6 of us so we could try just about everything; the lamb shank, monkfish, squid ink linguine, mushroom & short rib agnolotti, arugula salad with taleggio, polenta with sausage & fontina & funghi pizza…not a bad bite in any of it. Full disclosure though: I’m the chefs mother, so in addition to being his biggest fan, I’m also his biggest critic! Don’t miss this cozy spot & while you’re there try Ode To The Lake; excellent craft cocktail. Much success to all involved! ~ Olivia’s Bistro Facebook
