The English Tea Room presents its 20th annual Nutcracker Christmas Tea with ballerinas and traditional holiday music, complete with a lavish High Tea, on Sundays in December: Dec. 5, 12 and 19, 2021.
A holiday favorite for children and adults of all ages, the Nutcracker Teas are where family traditions and memories are made. Ballerinas perform dances from The Nutcracker, and provide a special dance session with the children. Plus, Santa Claus will visit for photos!
The High Tea features assorted tea sandwiches, hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, holiday themed desserts, and their famous fresh-baked English scones served with housemade lemon curd, clotted cream and strawberry jam. And, of course, pots of premium holiday teas will be served: Chocolate Chai, Nutcracker Tea (caffeine-free), Cinnamon Holiday Blend Tea and White Christmas Tea.
Each Nutcracker Tea is $48 per person (both adults and children), which includes tip and tax. Seatings are 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 2:30-4:30 p.m. each day. Advance reservation and pre-payment required. The Tea Room's Christmas events sell out very quickly, so call (985) 898-3988 right away to reserve your seats. Groups are welcome or just tea for two. All sales final, no refunds.
