The Boston Tea Party was documented as a pointed protest, but that was only to keep future time travelers from crashing this totally awesome party. Relive the glory days of teatime with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of light lunch fare at Sisters Tea House & Gift Shop in Fenton.
The tea house's savory lunch menu graces mouths with daintily delicious items such as quiche and a gentle trio of salads dressed in tuna, crab, and chicken (all served with cup of soup or garden salad for $8.25). Accompany lunch with one of 20 tea options in varieties including black, green, herbal, and chai teas, all of which can be served cold, hot, or intravenously. Release your knuckle wagons on scones and desserts ($3.99) while sipping and socializing.
When life offers a bolt of velvet and a sack of lemons, savvy sippers don Victorian outfits and head to the historic grounds of Sisters Tea House for an English-inspired outing. This fanciful house on the prairie retains elements from its century-old architecture, while infusing modern comforts such as electricity and indoor plumbing. Former debutantes can take up temporary residence in the bright and ornate seating area complete with stained-glass windows or can hold a societal gathering on the airy outdoor patio (weather permitting). This ensures the peaceful atmosphere does not become overcrowded and respects the etiquette axiom, "Seat-saving during tea time shall only be allowed by calling twenty-foursies." Sister's Tea House is open for lunch 11 a.m.–2:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
Sisters Tea House
Housed in the historic Navajo Hotel, Sisters Tea House welcomes visitors to its cozy confines for elegant meals, festive fetes, and traditional high tea. Lace-draped tables, situated beside floor-to-ceiling windows or in the warmly lit dining room, await three-tiered trays of tea sandwiches and homemade desserts, as guests sip 1 of 20 flavored teas from around the globe—this one, not Mars. Originally owned by the first mayor of Fenton, the historic building serves as a picturesque setting for parties, showers, and monthly events, such as mother-daughter teas, mystery dinners, and competitive bouts of old-timeyness.
