Teas at Ruthmere
Ruthmere is known for tea. We have a beautiful teapot collection, we have a tea and crumpets option for tour bus groups, and we've become famous for our "Downton Abbey Tea" events. Ruthmere is offering 2 new series, "Teas for All Seasons," featuring four distinct teas on special Sunday afternoons from 2-4pm throughout the year, and "Tuesday's Teas at 2," featuring more casual teas every Tuesday in September and October. All teas will be open to the general public to attend. Limited seating for each date, so register early. It's tea time!
Tea for All Seasons 2021
Tuesday's Teas @ 2
September 7 - October 19, 2021
Let your day slow down every Tuesday afternoon, 2-3:30pm, during the months of September in Ruthmere's garden and October in Ruthmere's game room (unless weather permits outdoors). Watch the butterflies chase the dragonflies while you sip your tea. Bring your own favorite tea cup, or borrow one of ours. Meet your friends, make new friends, or enjoy a quiet seat alone to read a book. Our Tuesday Teas reflect a traditional afternoon English tea, which come with scones and a few sweets. Cost is $10 per person with very limited seating.
Registration and pre-payment REQUIRED and registration is not accepted the day of the tea.
