British-style tea and class
A tea class followed by a full British-styled cream tea will be held at the Benjamin Prescott Inn on March 30, from 1 to 4 p.m.
Alex Harney of Harney Teas in Millerton, N.Y., will be providing insight into all things tea — how it’s grown, where it’s harvested and cultivated and why it matters. Participants will learn the difference between a robust oolong and a delicate white, and be able to taste the distinction between tea harvested high in the Himalayas or a green tea grown in Japan.
Following the class, classically trained five-star chefs will provide a full cream tea menu of traditional scones and homemade clotted cream and jams as well as not-so-traditional items such as curried cucumber cups and poached pear brie crustini and a selection of sweets treats to go with new favorite tea pairings.
The cost is $23.95 per person plus tax. Seating is limited and payment must be made in advance.
