Afternoon teas

Join the DCA for tea!

Enjoy a quintessential British tea with freshly-baked and homemade goodies:

Dainty sandwiches to include cucumber,
Scones with jam and clotted cream,
A selection of seasonal cakes and pastries.

Local Darien Brit Carolyn Eddie has been offering afternoon teas to her friends in the area for years. She’s now bringing a proper British tea room to the DCA: a popular, regular event. These scrumptious teas are ranked among the “Top 5 Out Of 50 Ways to Rediscover Where You Live” in The 2013 Insider’s Guide to New Canaan, Darien and Rowayton, where they called the experience “Another Step Closer to Downton Abbey.” Photo above: Carolyn (red sweater) with her team, L-R: Robin Ackerman, Caroline Burke, Rebecca Lowden, Sue Hayes & Denise Cara.
