What we're about

I am in many Tea Groups that only cover one area so I decided to start a group that covers all of Southern California as I enjoy going to other locations & would like to try Tea Houses in all of Southern CA. Looking for women who would like to get together to try different tea houses/enjoy high tea in a variety of venues all over Southern California from the San Fernando Valley (High Tea Cottage) to the Beach (Ritz Carlton) to the Mountains (Mill Creek Manor Tea Room in Big Bear). Also may plan lunches & other events to try new restaurants for brunch, lunch & dinner. Members of this group are in all areas so we do restaurants in a variety of areas. If you enjoy going to high tea and brunches & don't mind a little bit of a drive please join us!

The Olde Magnolia Tea Room provides a unique sit-down traditional inspired British afternoon tea time experience with all the accoutrements in the heart of Old Town Upland. Our tea room was established in 2019, in our historic early 1900's classical revival brick building.

Our vision was to restore the building to its original state and welcome folks in the inland empire and surrounding cities to come and enjoy some afternoon tea with us. We found Downtown Upland to have a small town feel and the quaint character which adds to an unforgettable tea time experience.

The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa Riverside California's National Historic Landmark is beautiful this time of year with the entire place covered with lights/Holiday decorations. Come enjoy the holidays with the group and enjoy some afternoon tea. I chose the least expensive tea on the menu without alcohol. If someone wants a cocktail/wine this is available for purchase in addition to the tea price.

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. Limit for reservation is 20 as this is the limit they have for this day (they have my credit card to reserve and charge it right away). 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!)

For those interested we will also have an optional $20 Gift Exchange (Please bring a "tea" related item!)

the light of the moon.

A beautiful tea that sparkles in the cup.

apple, orange and lemon bits, lavender

flowers, sunflowers and rose petals.

Pure Japanese Sencha with a touch of the

tropics. Exotic passion fruit essence and

complexity and character from the clean,

lightly floral flavor of lavender and scented

with citrusy natural Italian oil of bergamont.

Sweet southern peaches and a hint of ginger make

this tea an all American favorite. Wonderful to
