Holiday Teas Abound!

All our afternoon tea directories have just been scrubbed and updated, so please revisit your local and destination afternoon tea venues for the latest details and special event tea dates (

Most importantly and excitingly, during this “most wonderful time of the year,” tearooms love getting into the spirit by hosting holiday teas with fabulously scrumptious menus. And their most loyal patrons know this, calling to reserve their seats months ahead. For example, in mid-November, the December holiday teas at The Jefferson Hotel in Richmond, VA are entirely sold out. So hop to it!

Destination Tea Tip:  Whenever we add a special event tea to a directory, we will post it to our Facebook page. You can easily sift through to the state’s events which interest you by going to our page and selecting “Posts” from the left navigation. You’ll see a search field on the top right of that page, and can use your state’s abbreviation to find any afternoon tea announcements for your state, like this for Florida: #FLAfternoonTea.

  1. I read around 6-8 different articles and it seems you jump back and forth between “Tea House” and “Tea Room” as if they are the same thing. Since you’re talking about Afternoon Tea, you are most certainly talking about British Tea Rooms and NOT Japanese Tea Houses. Fixing this would help clear things up for your readers. I really love the idea of a directory for different states. None of the states I visit or live(d) in are on the list, but perhaps in the future? I had fun exploring some of the ones in the Alaska list though. Who knew? My husband dreams of visiting there one day. 🙂

    1. Tiffanie, good to have you here and thank you for exploring the website, as well as for your suggestions. We have added a standing page to explain the various tea venues: In our directories, we do include Japanese tea ceremonies when the offered ceremony includes food. More states are on the way, we are busily researching and adding them weekly. Glad you had fun dreaming of Alaska!
