  • Feeling tea-lighted and cozy at Young Tea! 

We caught up with @youngteausa owner Caroline Lee for a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony to celebrate the recent addition of her 8 Scent Jasmine Pearl to Intentionalist’s #AANHPI Marketplace! 

🍃 8 Scent Jasmine Pearl consists of silvery buds and tender young leaves picked in spring from southern China. 

🌼 Each pearl is individually hand-rolled and left among the night-blooming jasmine blossoms over a period of 6 to 8 hours to fully absorb their floral sweetness. 

🫖 Just a few days left to save 20% on everything in the AANHPI Marketplace, including the delightful Jasmine Pearl! Don’t miss out, shop now through the link in our bio.

  • We caught up with SODO Business Improvement Area Executive Director Erin Goodman to explore places to #SpendLikeItMatters in SODO.

🍽️: @cafeconlecheseattle - owners Pedrito and Pancho wanted a space big enough to play live music and run an authentic Cuban restaurant. Many recipes served at Cafe Con Leche come from Pedrito’s family.

🧶: @pacificfabrics - owned by Wendy and Douglas Glant, the store’s reputation for outstanding service, innovative and forward-thinking products, and an unbeatable selection set it apart from national chain stores. 

🖼️: @artgalleryb612 - owner and curator MiYoung Margolis has created space for artists to share their voices and for the community to come together to view, discuss and connect with each other.

Have a favorite spot in SODO? Tag them in the comments - we can’t wait to meet them!
