Jane Pettigrew at Headley-Whitney Museum

Bruce Richardson of Elmwood Inn Fine Teas brought Jane Pettigrew,  London's First Lady of Tea, to the Headley-Whitney Museum in Lexington this evening. 
Jane presented a very interesting program on The Social History of British Tea.

Elmwood Inn Fine Teas provided a tea tasting of Temple Garden and Young Hyson Green Tea.

After the program and tea tasting, Bruce and Jane signed books and visited with the guests. 
The books and teas are available at www.elmwoodinn.com

Thanks to my dear friends Patty and Mary for going with me to this very special program. 
The Headley-Whitney Museum is located in the heart of beautiful horse farm country on Old Frankfort Pike near Lexington.
After the event, we drove to Historic Midway where enjoyed dinner at the Heirloom Restaurant.

Oh how fun! I've gotten to meet both Bruce and Jane before and was delighted to find how completely down-to-earth and approachable they are. But I've never actually heard Jane give a presentation -- lucky you!
