Step back in time as Eliza Vincz-Lichack (pictured here) recreates a Colonial-era afternoon tea in Durand-Hedden's eighteenth-century kitchen. This historical reenactment will use an antique eighteenth-century tea set, punch bowl, and more. Learn why tea was such a hot commodity, spill the tea, and swap biscuit and sweets recipes as you enjoy this engaging demonstration.

Eliza Vincz-Lichack holds her BA in art history from Rosemont College with a focus in the socio-economic aspects of fashion in late eighteenth-century America and Europe. 


The day's events will also include a Chinese tea demonstration with Xiuqin "Qin" Zhai and Susan Li as well as children's activities and an exhibit on this history of tea from China to eighteenth-century New Jersey.

Registration is free and is appreciated. Just visit our event page.
