Gluten-free and vegan options available. Please advise of dietary requirements when booking.
A little history.
The tradition of high tea evolved from a cheeky afternoon meal of tea and bread, snuck into the chambers of the Duchess of Bedford in 17th Century England to stave off hunger as she waited for her man to return home for the late evening meal.
As influential young men discussed politics over increasingly long lunches, stylish women of the day grasped afternoon tea as a social outlet to discuss ‘tea business’ – topics not deemed fit for conversation in mixed company.
High tea has transcended history to become one of today’s most popular and enduring ways to break from routine and share cherished moments with family and friends.
Seatings are available from Thursday to Sunday for groups of 2 to 35 people – ideal for your next celebration, or making a special occasion of your next social catch-up!
Teavine House specialises in hosting bridal showers, baby showers, birthday parties, and other events. Private garden and patio settings are available with no additional venue hire charge for groups of more than 10 guests.
BYO wine and champagne – why not bring along a bottle of bubbly to add a little extra fizz to your high tea celebration? (Corkage $2.50 per person.)
