I have done the tea twice and both times it was simply excellent. Twenty lucky people can get free tickets at the information center for either the 10am or 2pm seating (EDT) in a charming room in the beautifully restored and maintained Hubbard House. There you will be served wonderful tea and delicious cookies on hand crocheted table clothes with linen napkins and lovely tea service. It feels quite elegent though you can come as you are, everyone does. But the real treat is the women who talk about Eleanor Roosevelt, her life, her accomplishments, her influence on her husband and on the country itself during her life time. Carolyn in particular is full of stories of Eleanor she loves to tell. She is an excellent story teller and knows a spectacular amount of Eleanor Roosevelt. If you are not an Eleanor fan when you come in, you will be when you come out. I think Eleanor would be very pleased with the tea tradition she so loved carrying on in her name. In sum, don't miss it.
