Annual Scottish Tea

If there is one thing SCOT members can do, it is put on a proper Scottish Tea! Each year, a group of SCOT members transforms a church Fellowship Hall into a cozy Scottish Tea Room. There are tartan and lace covered tables, dainty centerpieces, big thistles on the wall, and a vast collection of tea pots kept filled with a variety of steaming teas by our own Tea Masters.

There are scrumptious sweet and savory items to enjoy with the tea: tea sandwiches, Scotch eggs, scones, shortbreads, lemon tarts, and Empire biscuits, all home-made and beautifully arranged by talented SCOT bakers. Traditionally, each attendee brings a favorite tea cup and saucer and many enjoy an opportunity to wear a dressy hat. There is usually a tea-related theme to the afternoon such as tea services, tea linens, tea recipe books, or Scottish pottery. The Tea is an inter-generational event and all are welcome!
