Extra Special Teas on Elm Street in Great Barrington is a locally based not for profit organization that supports trains and empowers adults with disabilities such as autism and Down's Syndrome as these individuals learn to work and thrive in the Berkshires. Their vocational day program is supported by the Bay State's Department Of Developmental Services, grants from various foundations and contributions from committed donors.

A fund raiser entitled "The Blue Party" will take place on Saturday, April 6th from 11 am to 4 pm as all community members are invited to wear blue and they can post party pictures to their respective social media. You will sample an extra special brew of blue tea and gluten-free  brownie bites made by Extra Special servers and their staff.
