Learn how tea was introduced and the controversy surrounding it, as well as the rituals of the tea ceremony and the equipage needed to serve it. Bring your own treasured teacup, if you wish, and “take tea,” hosted by Mrs. Paca and her colonial friends. You’ll enjoy an authentic colonial tea with sweets and savories while catching up on the latest news and gossip of the era. A book signing will follow this special experience.
