Iris High Tea

Fashioned after the ten years of our Hope Grows Victorian Tea fundraising event, our high tea service is new to our offerings and is for everyone! Consider relaxing with friends and family, or alone for some solitude.

Our Iris Respite House chef crafts her menu from fresh ingredients, and herbs and vegetables growing in the garden, all while maintaining favorites representative of an English tea setting. While the menu is seasonal and changes monthly, guests will find their palette well attended. You’ll also enjoy an extensive selection of classic and seasonal teas from Harney & Sons, and an item or two for purchase.

Tea selections include English Breakfast, Father’s Day Bourbon Tea, Garden Therapy Herbal Tea, Dragon Pearl Jasmine, and Blueberry Green Fresh Brew Iced Tea,

The June menu includes:

  • Savories Course – Herbed Cucumber, Ham & Cheese, and Curried Chicken Salad
  • Scones Course – Lemon Poppyseed Scones with Blackberry Jam
  • Sweets Course – Fruit & Cream Tarts, Hummingbird Cupcakes, and Orange Creamsicle Truffles

Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options are possible. Subject to availability and an upcharge.
