The History of Tea in America 1/27

On Thursday, January 27th, Elizabeth Knight, author of such books like Tea With Friends and Tea in the City: New York will be hosting a lecture about the history of tea in America at the Mount Vernon Museum & Gardens, located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

Elizabeth Knight is the former tea sommelier for the historic St. Regis Hotel (also located in NYC). Widely recognized as one of the country's foremost authorities on tea and entertaining, she has appeared on national television and radio programs including WNBC's "Today in New York," WOR's "Food Talk," The Travel Channel, HSN and QVC.

According to Knight, tea is as individual as the culture from which it’s produced, and this presentation will explore that notion from an American perspective.  Tea will be served.
