As a London tour guide, I offer tours and classes about afternoon tea. Sometimes they consist of attending an afternoon tea at a fancy hotel with a step-by-step explanation on the elements of the tea and offering etiquette lessons. Other tours include shopping for tea and discussing tastes and history in general. This is a subject that I enjoy. While I was born in Texas and drank iced tea most of my life, I have come to love a cup of hot tea with milk, as well as scones, jam, cream ... and desserts! My favourite tea on a daily basis is Earl Grey, but I often have a smoky lapsang souchong in the afternoon. I'm a big fan of crumpets, but those are actually a morning delicacy!
none, but you might want to try making a cup of tea and a scone!

You will have two handouts that you can print. One will be used in class for questions & answers. Please print it and be prepared to answer questions in class. The second handout is optional and includes a list of supplies and recipes to make beforehand. If you wish to partake in the tea, this is a fun way to enjoy and learn more.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
