What we're about

Originally started by a lovely English lady living in the US, who missed taking time in the day to have tea with friends, the group has grown into a popular way for tea-loving ladies all around the Bay Area to come together!

This is group is for those ladies who want have a social outing, meet with new friends and catch up with old. And, of course, enjoy tea out of your finest china or most-prized mug! Bring your favorite tea cup and tea, if you wish, and we can sip and chat together.

We do both in-home tea parties and tea room meetups throughout the year, approximately one of each per month. We'd love to have suggestions for new places to gather and offers to host an upcoming tea.

PLEASE NOTE: 1. You must have a picture of yourself on your profile before you will be approved as a member. We are going into members' homes and we need to be able to put a face to a name for new members. 2. There is a small yearly fee to join, to pay for the cost of running the group through Meetup. After the trial period, this fee must be paid via WePay before you can RSVP to events.
