What we're about

We are all about afternoon tea and sharing our love of it. Join us as we visit and support Southern California's tearooms, invaluable gems that are becoming rarer with each passing day. This group will seek out and host unusual tea activities and seasonal tea events, and exchange tea tips and news on tea-friendly entertainments. All are welcome to lift a cup with us. Cheers!

P.S. If you're looking for experiences out of the tea box, consider joining our sister groups, Siren School (http://www.meetup.com/SirenLife/), or Whimsicalitea (https://www.meetup.com/Whimsicalitea-arts/) for scads of cultural experiences
