Nestled in a quaint and picturesque hamlet in Eden Valley as part of the Sierra Nevada Foothills and surrounded by majestic Ponderosa pines and century old oak trees, pink and white dogwoods, lilacs and 21 different themed gardens open up to a treasure trove of fantasy and fairytale. Elizabethan gardens were recreated and transpired from travels to Great Britain’s castle gardens. Castle tea parties are reincarnated with all the pomp and circumstance with a charming educational presentation of the history of tea, with different kinds of tea, the origins of tea, varietals and the significant components of tea.
While stepping into the land of Enchantment with castles, knights in shining armor and ladies in long flowing gowns and fanciful hats an image of an era gone by is created. With the expertise of Beverly Macy, the proprietor and a certified Tea Consultant from the Tea Specialty Institute who is also is a certified herbalist, master gardener and Etiquette Consultant, she fashions a way to enjoy tea in a atmosphere of social intimacy that slips the timepiece in your mind away and casts your fate to a delight of tasty tea, gourmet English food and thoughtful conversation for the afternoon. Join us for an afternoon of serenity and quiet repose, celebrate and capture the essence of afternoon tea with British panache.
Different themed tea parties and Special-tea Events are available with the Tea of the Month Club, Book Club Tea Group, Weddings and Bridal teas, a Business associates tea, Birthday parties and Baby shower teas. Nowhere is the English genius of domesticity more notably evident than in the festival of afternoon tea.
