**High Tea at the Mission Inn (951) 784-0300**

Welcome To The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa Riverside California's National Historic Landmark

Where magnificent grand vistas harbor countless intimate hidden treasures. And where the outside world is left behind, setting a grand stage for memories that will last a lifetime.

For over a century, world leaders and Hollywood stars have chosen The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in Riverside, CA as a place of refuge and renewal. Originally built as a two-story adobe guesthouse in 1876, the Inn has become the crown jewel of Inland Southern California, occupying an entire city block.

We will be at the "Mission Inn Restaurant" within the complex.  The High Tea features  Kelly's Tea offerings, served with savory selections and an assortment of delicious & dainty sweets.

 They are extremely strict about cancelations so if you are going to book please be aware they will not give the money back.  I have a starting number of 4 to start with then I will open up to more as people RSVP since once I book a number I have to pay (they have my credit card to reserve and charge it right away).  We CAN take more than 4 so once we hit 4 RSVP by email then I will call and then open up more reservations.  I like this hotel as I was there for another event for business and it is beautiful.  There is also a spa in the hotel.  The actual Tea selections look wonderful! (It's all about the tea at this place!)

2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Tea Selection as follows:

1) Lemon Soué - Fine White Tea* White tea leaves with tart juicy lemons

and just the right amount of vanilla

and caramel essence.

2) Organic Jasmine - Fine Green Tea*

Delicate Green Tea buds, pleasantly mingled

with Jasmine blossoms, hand picked under

the light of the moon.

3) Tuscan Garden

Fine Herbal Tea**

A beautiful tea that sparkles in the cup.

From the gardens of wine country, this tea

mingles grapes and black currants with

apple, orange and lemon bits, lavender

flowers, sunflowers and rose petals.

4) Organic Green Passion Fine Green Tea*

Pure Japanese Sencha with a touch of the

tropics. Exotic passion fruit essence and

natural ginseng root yields an energizing

cup with crisp, clean flavors and a

wonderfully aromatic scent.

5) Earl Grey with Lavender

Classic blend of fine black teas, gains

complexity and character from the clean,

lightly floral flavor of lavender and scented

with citrusy natural Italian oil of bergamont.

(available caffeinated or caffeine free)

6) Ginger Peach - Fine Black Tea*

Sweet southern peaches and a hint of ginger make

this tea an all American favorite. Wonderful to

sip while relaxing on a front porch swing.

Scones & Devonshire Cream

Savory Course:

Traditional Wheel of Egg

Chilled Asparagus

English Cucumber

American Prosciutto

Chilled Poached Shrimp


The Mission Inn Selection of Mini Pastries

    This was an awesome tea. Private room off outside patio was wonderful. All the food and deserts were delicious and beautifully presented. A definite 'do it again'. Thank you, Maryanne, for a fun filled afternoon with a great group of tea lovers.

    Lovely service & settings, tea sandwiches on the smaller side. Plenty of sweets, my.boyfriend and I tend to favor the savory sandwiches over sweets. Scones were tasty, but mini size.

    What's really fun if you can afford it-book a massage or treatment at Kelley's Spa in the am, then cruise over to the hotel adjoining for the tea, a totally relaxing day!

      I had a facial there what a wonderful place! They give you a complimentary champagne or juice mix with any service. This is a top of the line spa. Tea was wonderful too! Look forward to your teas coming up.

    Randall and I are looking forward to seeing you all again. I've always wanted to go to the Mission Inn!

    This place looks amazing! Just walking past the cupcake shop looks worth the drive -haha. From looking at the website, I noticed they give tours, so I booked a reservation for 4 people for the 11:30 tour. It's $12 if you have a AAA card, takes about 75 minutes. So there'd be about an hour to kill, wandering around on our own, before tea time. If anyone is interested in taking the tour with me, let me know so I can adjust the reservation. Figured for the long drive for me, I was going to make a day of it!
