Grundy Museum hosts Victorian Tea Tasting

This event is set for Sept. 7 in Bristol

The Grundy Museum, 610 Radcliffe St., Bristol, is hosting a Victorian Tea Tasting on the South Lawn on Saturday, Sept. 7. Noted tea specialist Deborah Raab, of Trenton, New Jersey, owner of the online tea store Tea-For-All, will be present.

Beginning at 11 a.m., the program offers a brief history of tea from the Colonial to Victorian eras and touches on tea etiquette and proper tea attire. It continues with a variety of teas served in fine china for guests to sample, and a light repast of tea sandwiches, scones and desserts catered by Bristol’s Susan Duffy Arroyo, a Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College graduate.

Guests are encouraged to wear their most beautiful hat to the occasion for prizes. Following the tasting, everyone is invited to take docent-led tours of the Grundy Museum to learn more about the Victorian home of Sen. Joseph R. Grundy and his sister Margaret.

This free rain-or-shine, outdoor event is open to those 18 and older. Register at or 215-788-7891. For more information on the Grundy family, their home and free tours, visit
