Tea-lishous is a tea cottage located in the heart of New Kingston, serving Victorian afternoon tea with a Georgian influence. The brain-child of Marjorie Scott Anderson, the Tea-lishous concept came into maturity after an intense stint at a 5-Star tea room in San Diego, California. Immediately after this, she attended the World Tea Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada where she further honed the concept. Her love for tea (which started with her introduction to the tea ceremony at Westwood High School), has given her the confidence to take on this venture – offering a place of retreat, revitalization and refreshment. Marjorie will be offering her signature Afternoon Tea experience at Bookophilia on Saturday afternoon, June 26, 2010 at 5:30 pm.
Tea-lishous integrates tea beverages with light exotic, traditional Victorian afternoon tea foods to create a unique social environment. Sights, sounds, tastes and smells of exotic teas from around the world will transport customers to a place of renewal, revival and refreshment. Guests will be able to taste Oolong, South African Red, the now trendy blooming teas (that open into a flower) learn about tea etiquette, and get tips on selecting and brewing teas. Guests will also be offered current information on tea and tea industry trends, health benefits and properties, unique merchandise, as well as have an unforgettable experience.
Our book recommendations for this event are “Exotic Teas, the Caribbean and the rest of the world” by Dr. Henry Lowe and “The Japanese Tea Ceremony” by Cha No Yu.
