Ceylon Tea Room
Enjoy a 3 course tea service paired with delicious treats from tropical Ceylon during South Asian Heritage Month. Taking place at the Benares Historical House Museum in Mississauga, the Ceylon Tea Room is an afternoon tea event that will showcase the culture, food and famous teas of the region. From fresh jasmine flowers to decorative brass lamps, the tea service is an experience that highlights the beauty of Ceylon in many ways.
The event will feature a three course tea service where each course will be paired with a traditional Ceylon delicacy, such as coconut pancakes with Jasmine green tea. During the tea, Apsaras will demonstrate the beautiful art of Bharathanatya, an ancient classical danceform with elegant hand gestures and intricate footwork.
Following the tea service, guests are invited to take a step back in time to over 100 years ago with a tour of the Benares Historic House. The estate was home to four generations of the Harris and Sayers families and is filled with original antique possessions of the families.
