EXETER —On Sat., December 4, from 11:00 a.m. — 12:30 p.m., the American Independence Museum will host Virtual Holiday Tea.
Featuring colonial music and opportunities to learn about colonial tea etiquette and 18th century foodways, the event additionally provides attendees with their own ‘room’ and colonial Zoom background for socialization with friends and family. As part of the virtual event, each participant will receive several colonial recipes suited for tea and a half-ounce package of tea from Alchemy & Herbs in Exeter.
“This is a great event where anyone anywhere can enjoy a festive time in their own home with a bit of colonial flair,” said museum Executive Director Emma Stratton. “It’s also a great way to invite people into the museum who might not otherwise be able to attend in person.
Tea can be picked up at the museum’s Ladd-Gilman House at 1 Governors Lane, Exeter, or shipped for $3.00.
