Temps are pushing 100 degrees, but here’s something to lift your spirits: free samples and tastings at The Cultured Cup in Preston Center. All day Thursday through Saturday, the specialty tea shop will offer cold teas, fruit infusions and coffee beverages. Experts  will show you how to make these refreshing summer brews at home. Also, the store is featuring its new line of turtle chocolates from local chocolatier, nib Chocolates.

Oh and one more note about Cultured Cup–it was a featured location on the Style Network’s show, “Whose Wedding Is It Anyway?” Check out this clip, and at the 25-second mark, you might recognize the shop’s interior.
