Mother and Daughter Tea (1 1/2 hours) After choosing a fancy hat to wear we sit at the tea table to learn about different types of tea and a little history. We play a few games as we learn how to handle a teacup and napkin, and how to make conversation while we appreciate the finesse of drinking tea. We enjoy tea scones and different cakes and sandwiches as we taste three types of tea. What a thrill it is to be a women and feel the power of femininity in being graceful, gentle and yet strong. I supply the venue, cutlery, crockery, tea and cakes. Fees:$30 per participant.
