Trivia: Tea in the Time of Jane Austen

Audience:  Janeites confident in their thorough knowledge of Jane Austen’s works and life will be lightly tested by this tea-themed trivia. But anyone interested in tea customs popular before the advent of afternoon tea will enjoy these questions. Answers for two-thirds of the trivia questions cannot be found in a Jane Austen novel. Rather, they will see what your guests know about the tea traditions of Jane Austen’s day (Georgian to Regency era).

This trivia can also be used at your Regency or Bridgerton themed tea parties (see our Regency Tea Party Guide here). We recommend printing the one-pager of 15 questions on ivory linen paper, rolling and tying with a ribbon. You might even set one at each place setting, along with a quill pen as a favor.

This purchase includes two downloads – “Tea in the Time of Jane Austen” trivia sheet and Answer Key. If you have questions about any of the answers, please email us. Enjoy!
