Hanby House Teas:

"Tea, though ridiculed by those who are naturally coarse in their nervouse sensibilities...will always be the favoured beverage of the intellectual." Thomas de Quincey, English author (1795-1859)

Hanby House offers teas to the intellectual..and the coarse!

Teas begin with a presentation on the history of tea and instruction in proper tea etiquette for the Victorian lady and gentleman. Guests are then invited to serve themselves from our tea buffet of savory, sweet, dessert and chocolate foods. Costumed hostesses will serve tea at each table. Following the buffet is a brief program of historical interest. Hanby House is then open for a tour.

The entire tea takes about 2 hours. Costs can vary but range from $15 to $25 per person. Watch this website for the announcement of the 2018 tea scheule.
