The Secret Tea Room invites you to enjoy an enchanting Sunday Afternoon Tea in the historic Wisner House overlooking the Arboretum’s gardens and grounds. The Secret Tea Room takes particular pride in its collection of chinaware, which wonderfully complements the Victorian style of Wisner House.
Upon arrival you are offered a menu of fine teas and infusions. Your choice of tea is brewed to perfection and served along with freshly baked scones (from the Wisner House kitchen), jam, homemade clotted cream, and scrumptious baguette tea sandwiches. A tiered selection of delicious desserts is also included. About midway through the service, you will be offered a complimentary glass of Prosecco or sparkling lemonade. We hope you will join us!
