Tea Talk And Tea at the Voelker Orth Museum

It’s time for tea! Come learn about how the world’s most popular beverage was prepared, used, and marketed in 19th-century America on Sunday, June 10th from 1:30PM thru 4PM at the Voelker Orth Museum!

Have you ever wondered about the “pinkie out” stereotype of fancy ladies drinking tea? Find out this, and much more. There’s a lot more to Camellia Sinensis than the dusty box of Lipton in your grandma’s cupboard!

Historic teas will be served. And, we invite you to linger and enjoy some Victorian-inspired sweet and savory refreshments. General admission: $18 / $15 for members & students.

Guest speaker, Kelsey Brow is a curator at the King Manor Museum specializing in historic house museums, textiles, food history, and material culture of the Early Modern period and the 19th century.
