Summertime Tea in the Gardens
Denver Botanic Gardens and Denver Tea Room present a beautiful morning of tea tasting and education in the serene Woodland Mosaic Gardens in the brand new glass enclosed Solarium.
Margo Seymour, pastry chef, tea sommelier, and owner of The Denver Tea Room, will present a traditional British afternoon tea service with a nod to the various cultures that also enjoy the practice of taking tea. Guests will sample sandwiches from England, desserts from France and Scotland, and teas from Sri Lanka. Join us in the solarium, with fine china and linens, to learn about the difference between “high tea” and “low tea”, as well as the many ways tea is served around the world.
