Tranquility: Teahouse, Wellness, Cafe... and mostly gluten free!

Every Tuesday morning we hold our office meeting at one of our current, and usually new listings.... this week was a bit different. We were invited to Tranquility.

Recently, one of our agents, Pam Colesworthy, began a new venture. Pam wanted to bring something new to the Valley, and stemming from her love of teas and healthy foods, thus became Tranquility.

“Tranquility will offer our customers a place to relax, enjoy and exhale from everyday stress with teas from all over the world, gluten free and non-gluten foods and boutique gifts,“ said Colesworthy. “Our goal is to serve as a community gathering place that provides a sanctuary for general wellness and learning through the healing properties of tea and related products.”

Tranquility Teahouse, locally owned and operated by Pam Colesworthy, a Ketchum resident for 20 years, is now open Monday-Saturday from 10:00am-7:00pm. Located at 580 Washington St. N. in Ketchum, the new business fills a much needed desire and demand as the only dedicated teahouse in The Wood River Valley.

Along with 30 varieties of teas, Tranquility will feature a tasting bar where customers can sample their choice of different teas, including green, black, macha, and chai. A menu of savory bites such as soups and salads, hummus, tofu and edamame, all made from different teas bases, will complement the selection of sweet treats. Tranquility also plans to offer beer and wine on their menu in the very near future.

Assisting Pam are two Ketchum residents, Sylvie Dore’ and Tobin Jutte. Sylvie is Tranquility’s Tea Master with extensive knowledge of teas and a special interest in the healing properties’ of teas and herbs. In the kitchen, Tobin is the Food Curator, creating savory bites, hearty soups, a variety of salads, Panini and sweet treats at Tranquility. Both Sylvie and Tobin bring their experience and talents to the teahouse, creating a delicious and comforting respite for all.  Source: Tranquility Press Release

Not only do they sell tea, treats and gluten-free snacks, there is also a variety of gifts priced from $5-$20 including Leakey Jewelry that supports a school in Kenya, Bath Petals products made with sea salt and essential oils, teas from Tao of Tea, tea ware from a number of producers, plus essential oils diffusers from Floracopeia. Their array of crystals is from a local world-wide collector, and the Five Bee Honey is as local as it comes, produced in Hailey, Idaho!
And don't forget to check out their facebook page for a sneak peek at the delicious food that is served, or their website for a complete list of items (teas and snacks) on their menu. You will be pleasantly surprised at the prices and the cozy environment.
