|An Austentacious Tea at the Earhart Manor House|
Built in the 1930's and filled with period furnishings, the manor house was the ideal venue to get us started on our journey to the past. Drinking Twinings tea, just like Jane did, we traveled back to the Regency period. After discussing tea sources, fashions and Marie Antoinette's fine china (yes, there is an Austen connection!), we finished our presentation with a raffle of two packages of Jane Austen tea (a delicious green tea flavored with garden rose petals and chamomile available at Barb's TEA Shop's on-line store).

We concluded the event in the dining room with more pots of Twinings finest and delicious afternoon tea fare, including savories, sweets and scones. Although much has changed since Jane Austen penned her novels, one constant is the great time to be had when friends gather for tea.
