 Enjoy Our Spring Gala:
"The History of Tea"

Julia Matson, proprietress of Bingley's Teas Limited, will share the history
of the enticing beverage that warms our teacups. Join us from 1:30-3:30
on Saturday, April 18 in the Fellowship Hall of Faith Lutheran Church
in Praire Village, Kansas.

Julia has traveled the tea world learning about blending and brewing.
She has presented workshops at the annual Jane Austen Festival
for the Greater Louisville Region, and she has been a featured speaker
for other Jane Austen events.

She shares our passion for all things Austen, and is a frequent vendor
at JASNA Annual General Meetings. Her insights and experience are guaranteed
to help us savor the delights of tea.

Tea and Sustenance

Henry's Tearoom of Lee's Summit will be catering our English style tea
which includes scones with clotted cream and jam, four savories, and four sweets.
We will also be serving Bingley's Teas.

T-shirts, bookmarks, fans, earrings, teacups and saucers with estate napkins,
