A gift basket that sold in the silent auction at last week’s Billings TrailNet Membership Appreciation Event at Yellowstone Cellars and Winery included a special treat: Skyline Trail Blend, a custom-made tea mixed up by Gustavo Belotta, general manager of This House of Books.
In case you are wondering, this unique tea blend is named for the proposed Skyline Trail, which will extend from Swords Park to Zimmerman Park. (And contrary to rumors, this custom blend contains no goatheads or any other native plant matter gleaned from the Skyline Trail right of way.)
If you bid on the gift basket but didn’t win, don’t despair. A large jar full of Skyline Trail Blend is still available at This House of Books, 224 N. Broadway. But be aware: This blend is available for a limited time only.
