Original Virginia Beach Tea Society: “Virginia Tea Society”
The Virginia Tea Society, formerly named Historic Plantation Tea Society, was founded in 2001 by Constance Lue.
Constance (Connie) Lue’s tea education
background is expansive; she has been educated and mentored by “tea greats”
such as John Harney, Jane Pettigrew in London, Dorothea Johnson, James Norwood
Pratt (The Guru), and Bruce Richardson. Connie
began teaching “Let's Have An Afternoon Tea Party" class at the Adult
Learning Center in the late 1990's, and continued for several years before
founding the Virginia Tea Society in 2001.
Connie has since moved to North Carolina where she has founded the "Old
North State Tea Society” and teaches the “Let’s Have a Tea Party” class at Vance-Granville Community College in North
Carolina. The Virginia Tea Society
continues in Connie’s tradition, and fosters the love of tea by honoring its history,
sharing, and tradition up to present day.
The Society is dedicated to the ongoing education of members about the history of tea, its cultural importance, the art of presentation and related topics.
Annual membership is January 1st through December 31st.
Qualifications. Membership is open to anyone who is interested in supporting the purpose of the society and completes the Society’s tea class.
Dues. Dues are $15 annually, and a one-time $25 fee to attend the New Members Tea Class.
Meetings. General Membership meetings shall be held quarterly. Teas will be held monthly, except for the months of July and August.
