A Note on Tea Events: We regret that due to the size and nature of our facility, we are unable to provide accommodations for dietary needs or restrictions. All menus are set for each event and cannot be changed. Should you wish to attend one of our teas and bring your own food from home while partaking in our tea beverage service and event atmosphere, we can offer a discounted price of $15 for such occasions. Please make this request at the time you make your reservations.
Our teas typically include scones with jam or curd, three sweet items, three savory items, and our signature hot tea- Miss Eloise’s afternoon tea, which is a black tea with Jasmine. We do not offer additional tea options as we are not a restaurant or tea house and these special tea programs are designed with set menus. You are welcome to bring tea bags from home if you require decaffeinated options; we are happy to provide you with hot water, sugar, milk, and lemon as needed.
If you have additional questions about our tea menus or service, please call the museum at 623-9814.
