Social customs such as taking tea in the Victorian era were governed by the many rules of etiquette. For the visit alone, what to bring, what to wear, what to leave on, what to take off, when to visit, and when to leave were just a few of the things a woman of the time must consider. Join Linda Lipscomb at the Museum of the Confederacy-Appomattox for a Cream Tea and learn about the types of tea, the difference between afternoon tea and high tea, and how tea was introduced to England and the United States. Bring your own cup and saucer to enjoy scones, cookies and breads with your tea.
