Tea Time with Maya's Cookies (Vegan-Friendly)


About this experience

Advance tickets required. Reserve your ticket today for our first-ever Tea Time with Maya's Cookies, America’s #1 Black-owned Gourmet Vegan Cookie Company. This experience includes (1) Maya's Cookies Box containing three individually wrapped mini tea-inspired cookies (1.5 oz each): Coconut Chai Latte, Earl Grey Citrus, Matcha White Chocolate and (2) unlimited access to three tea tasting sessions.

At the beginning of the event, you’ll hear a few words from Maya Madsen and PARU’s Amy Truong. Afterward, you will stop at stations throughout the shop, where you will be tasting the three teas that inspired the cookie collection: Coconut Chai, London Grey, and our matcha, which we've sourced directly from Kyoto, Japan.

Preventing the spread of COVID-19. Facial coverings are optional for fully vaccinated guests. If you are not fully vaccinated, we ask that you keep your facial covering on unless actively eating or drinking.
Accessibility. This event involves standing and moving throughout the shop. If you require seating or assistance, please let us know—our team would be happy to help you!

Parking. Please plan to arrive early. Parking can be more difficult on Sunday's due to the local La Jolla Open Aire Farmers Market. Additional parking can be found alongside Pearl St.
