“We had a kettle: we let it leak:
Our not repairing it made it worse.
We haven’t had any tea for a week…
The bottom is out of the Universe!”

~ Rudyard Kipling

The River of Tea is a weekend-long respite from all the cares of the world.  It’s nothing complicated; come into the Tea Room and enjoy some simple tea in the company of friends old, new, and about-to-be-met.  Let us offer you the refreshment and joys of that most wondrous of beverages, tea!

The Tea Room is open several hours a day throughout the event.  Your wristband gets you unlimited admission to the Tea Room.  Bring your own tea, or drink ours – or both!

“Thank God for tea! What would the world do without tea? how did it exist? I am glad I was not born before tea. I can drink any quantity when I have not tasted wine; otherwise I am haunted by blue-devils by day, and dragons by night.” ~ Sydney Smith
