Houston Museum Invites Public to Celebrate Christmas with Authentic English Afternoon Tea 12/7

On December 7 from 1 to 4 pm, The Houston Museumis hosting an English tea to celebrate the Christmas holidays. As they did last year, they are partnering with Denise Sarjant, an English lady from Birmingham, who makes authentic English teas year- round asTea M’Lady. Richard Winham talked to Mrs. Sarjant who began by explaining the correct way to brew a cup of tea.

From the museum's Web site:

Chilly weather is already here—and so are the holidays and holiday shopping. Nothing sets the mood like the annual Holiday English Tea at the Houston Museum for Decorative Arts. The Houston is partnering again with Tea M’Lady to co-host "A Cosy Christmas on High Street" on December 7th from 1-4 p.m. As always, the event is a fundraiser for the unique Houston Museum—and the gift shop will also be open. Attending a tea at the Houston has always been a delicious experience,” said Marilyn Hoke, Houston Museum board member. “With our partnership with Tea M’ Lady, we will be treated to an added authenticity; ‘Proper’ English tea items will be featured.” Delicacies will include trifle, scones, tiny sandwiches, tarts, cheese straws, petit fours and other specialties—and of course, tea, properly served.

Richard Winham joined WUTC five years after the station began broadcasting to the Chattanooga area and the Tennessee Valley.
