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:

Sugar Plum Tea Party

The Four Seasons Tea Room

Tearooms have been hit hard in SoCal this year, and none more so than the beautiful Four Seasons Tea Room in Sierra Madre who have not been allowed (per health regulations) to serve indoors since March! As a means of showing them some love and support we're hosting a low-key holiday tea with a subtle nod to the Nutcracker. Nothing fancy, just some delicious tea fare in their charming covered garden patio. And I've invited a couple of talented friends to sing songs of the season for/with us. Dress: anything Christmasy or seasonally whimsical $55.25 includes relaxing holiday tea service with mushroom soup, finger sandwiches, scone, and decadent dessert, party favor, tax, gratuity, and PayPal fees Visit link for reservations: https://www.teatravellerssocietea.com/2010/11/sugar-plum-chocolat-festiviteas-at-four.html

CHOCOLAT dinner at dusk

The Four Seasons Tea Room

Remember that sumptuous birthday party dinner scene in the fabulous film CHOCOLAT with Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp et al? I'm reminded of it every time I visit the garden patio at the Four Seasons Tea Room, and at last we'll be celebrating that very scene with a dusk dinner of the same ilk. Expect chicken mole and a variety of dishes curated to go with the theme. $59.25 includes dinner, film trivia quiz, party favor, tax, gratuity, PayPal fees. $5 discount if you also reserve a spot for the Dec 13 Sugar Plum tea Visit link for reservations: https://www.teatravellerssocietea.com/2010/11/sugar-plum-chocolat-festiviteas-at-four.html
