Our World

The World Tea Society is dedicated to the history of tea, its cultural importance, etiquette and the art of presentation.  The Society celebrates friendship, social outings and culinary delights in the tradition of afternoon tea.  We invite you to step into the world of a society based around tea – a place of encouragement that was created for likeminded individuals.  The World Tea Society will encourages you to be your best with a positive attitude. We are joining women and men together and creating a friendship community through social afternoon tea events. We socially connect with one another to inspire each other with hospitality and graciousness.  We’re dedicated to all things tea, from sampling new flavors to simply gathering over a cuppa. What better way to meet new people than with a cup of tea and great company?
