Mark your calendar for the next meeting of the Kansas City Tea & Literature Club on Monday, April 10, 2017. The book is The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde and Portrait of a Lady by Henry James. The tea tradition we will be partaking of is English and as such we will have a light supper of assorted tea sandwiches and scones. We will be reading aloud from The Importance of Being Earnest!
All ESU members and Friends of ESU are welcome and encouraged to attend our quarterly Tea & Literature Club.
When: Second Monday of every third month. Next Club meeting: Monday, April 10, 2017
Time: 6:30-8:00 PM
Where: This meeting will be held in the home of an ESU board member. Since this is a private residence, if you plan on attending, you must email to get the address -firstname.lastname@example.org
Admission: Suggested donation of $10 to benefit the ESU's educational programs and to cover the cost of the teas. This fee can be paid in cash on the night of the session.
The goal of the Club is to educate tea connoisseurs in learning about and developing an appreciation for world-class teas. Members of the Club will learn about tea varieties, tea etiquette and tea culture from around the world.
"Just because the tea festival is only once a year doesn't mean we stop learning about tea," said Nicole Burriss, founder of the festival. "This club will give an opportunity to tea enthusiasts to broaden their tea education."
The Kansas City Tea & Literature Club will feature a book tied to a tea growing region of the world at each quarterly meeting. There will be time for discussion of the book and about a 30 minute presentation on the tea and tea culture of the featured region. Featured books will be a mixture of fiction and non-fiction.
The Tea & Literature Club is co-sponsored with the English-Speaking Union Kansas City Branch and the Midwest Tea Fest. To learn more: Click here.
