Every Saturday, we hold tea at 2pm for $20 per person.  One Sunday a month, we hold a Sunday Afternoon Tea Tasting in partnership with Asheville Tea Company for $27.95 per person.  The Sunday Tea includes live classical guitar music, as well as a seasonal tea tasting flight and a brief informative talk by Jessie Dean, owner of Asheville Tea Company.
