Hello fellow tea lovers! First, I would like to extend a gracious welcome to my new viewing audience – the readers of the Union County, New Jersey Patch. From now on, blogs that are posted on WordPress will also be found on The Patch. Feel free to peruse both sites and, if you have any problems, questions, concerns, comments or requests, feel free to shoot me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to help out.
And now, for anyone in the Union County, New Jersey area, I have a special treat for you. On Sunday, March 25th, the Miller-Cory House Museum in Westfield, New Jersey will be hosting an event called “A Spot of Tea.” It’s running from 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM and will feature the history of tea as shared by a local tea expert, a display of different tea varieties, a tour of the house and a demonstration of 18th century hearth cooking with authentic ingredients and instruments. I know that I will be there!
The Miller-Cory House Museum also has a rich history, if you’re interested as well! The house was built in 1740 in the West Fields of Elizabeth, New Jersey at the crossroads of colonial America on Old York Road, the main road between New York from Philadelphia. Now, volunteers come in traditional garb to tell you about time in the 18th century and history of the house.
The Miller-Cory House Museum is located at 614 Mountain Avenue in Westfield, New Jersey. Price of admission is $3 for adults, $1 for students and free for children under four, so make sure you have some sheckles ready. You can call them with any questions at (908) 232-1776.
If you attend this event, make sure that you comment here as well and give your feedback so we can brag about how amazing it was to our other readers :-)
Thanks for reading and, until next time, happy sipping!
