Winelands: Ladies' SIG* - Russian tea ceremony at Hazendal

*SIG – Special Interest Group.

Spanning generations, Russian tea-drinking has become an integral part of the country’s culture, highlighting the principles of friendship and warm hospitality.  During Hazendal’s Russian Tea Ceremony, a specially sourced and imported black Russian tea blend is served from a steaming samovar (an ornate Russian tea urn) and presented in traditional hand-painted porcelain tea sets from the Dulevo porcelain factory, one of the oldest and most famous porcelain producers in Russia.  The tea ritual is a visually intriguing experience that breathes new life into age-old tea brewing customs.

Join the ladies of Mensa Winelands for an unforgettable experience in the beautiful gardens of the historic Hazendal Estate.  Tea is served with a range of traditional and delicious Russian sweet and savoury treats, such as Baranki, Blini, Pirogi and Medovik.   Download the menu here.

R250pp.  Booking essential – email the Winelands Secretary for details.
