High Tea at Wivenhoe House
30th January 2016
During the early nineteenth century, Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford started the tradition of sending cards to her friends asking them to join her for “tea and a walking the fields” and with this in mind, Wivenhoe House would like to invite you to indulge in the tradition by exploring the beautiful grounds followed by an extraordinary Tea experience on Saturday 5 March, 2.30pm.
High tea at the House includes an exclusive Tea Masterclass and eight course High Tea held in the beautiful, traditional Signatures room. This prestigious event, held in the afternoon will be led by Tea sommelier Chris Holdys who inspired the Edge Hotel School undergraduates with the idea of bringing history back to Constable Country. Like in the words of the well-known song, ‘at half past three, everything stops for tea’, the High Tea event will start with Champagne on arrival, followed by a Tea Masterclass, in which you will get a taste of the accompanying teas that have been paired with the delicious four savory and four sweet dishes served in time-honoured silver service style to add to the experience.
