Christmastime Teas

Create merry memories with family and friends. After enjoying the Museum’s Magic of Christmas Celebration, relax with an afternoon tea prepared by Gourmet Galley, a caterer known for their creative menus and impeccable presentation. (You might also know them as Café Flo!) As music of the season quietly plays, nibble delectable scones with clotted cream, assorted savory tea sandwiches, and seasonal sweets as lovely as they are tasty. Let the warmth of holiday cheer spread with each sip of Miss Florence’s Tea. Served in a delightfully eclectic assortment of china, the unique and elegant beverage is a blend of superior Ceylon and China black teas enhanced with a touch of vanilla and other delicate spices. It is created over a two-day process just for the Museum by Sundial Gardens in Higganum, Connecticut. Quite a day to remember – and all against the backdrop of the Lieutenant River cloaked in its wintery splendor.

Fee includes admission to the Museum and the Magic of Christmas Celebration and a 10% discount in the Museum Shop.
