“Do You Take Sugar? One Lump or Two?”

The Afternoon Tea Party menus have been finalized and we are now able to sell tickets to these delightful gatherings. Guests to each tea party are offered a choice of teas: English Breakfast Tea, Earl Grey, Assam, or Darjeeling. Food served  to accompany the tea consists of: British scone with jam and clotted cream, 2 cucumber sandwiches, 2 egg salad sandwiches, 2 mini eclairs, 2 lemon tartlets, cup of fruit, and 2 Chessmen cookies (for Tea Dueling).

Tickets are limited and tend to sell out quickly, especially for the tables sharing tea with one of our Guests of Honor, so don’t delay.


The mystery countdown also continues with the latest clue . . .
