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.
POSTPONED: FROM JUNE to NOV 2020.
Let’s try something new, book club with a tea theme! “Together Tea” is a novel about family, love and finding the place you truly belong.
Please bring your favorite sweets, savories and tea! And post in the comments what you’re bringing.
About the book
Darya has discovered the perfect gift for her daughter’s twenty-fifth birthday: an ideal husband. Mina, however, is fed up with her mother’s years of endless matchmaking and the spreadsheets grading available Iranian-American bachelors. Having spent her childhood in Tehran and the rest of her life in New York City, Mina has experienced cultural clashes firsthand, but she’s learning that the greatest clashes sometimes happen at home.
After a last ill-fated attempt at matchmaking, mother and daughter embark on a return journey to Iran. Immersed once again in Persian culture, the two women gradually begin to understand each other. But when Mina falls for a young man who never appeared on her mother’s matchmaking radar, will Mina and Darya’s new-found appreciation for each other survive?
