GROUP TEAS

The Lee-Fendall House does special tea programs for small groups (under 20 people, minimum group size 5) on request.

Two types of tea events are available: a traditional tea or a tea tasting.

The traditional tea is a great event for those looking to socialize with tea and light snacks in a historic environment. The fee is $35 per person. If you wish to include a tour of the property, that is an additional $5 per person.

Tea tastings are an educational event, where 6 different teas are tested by the group. A discussion of the different varieties of tea available, as well as tasting notes, are included. The teas tasted can be customized to the group and either include a range (black, oolong, green, white, herbal) or focus on one particular type. The tea tasting fee is $45 per person.

Both events last between 1.5 and 2 hours. Vegetarian options can be provided. Please let us know of any food allergy concerns. If you would like to obtain more information or schedule a private tea event, please contact us.
