Making History Workshops: Traveling Teas (Ages 9-13)
August 7 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The fifth of King Manor's FREE weekly summer workshops for ages 9-13!
Tea is a familiar favorite that connects dozens of cultures worldwide with different blends, methods of growing, and even etiquette for drinking it! In the 1800s, tea connected the United States to far away places and became the everyday person's favorite way to unwind and enjoy friends.
Come taste teas from all over the 19th century world and learn about the ingredients from each blend -- then make your own tea blend to try!
Making History Workshops at King Manor are a FREE weekly summer program for pre-teens and teens (ages 10+), every Wednesday! Every workshop features one project based on the daily lives of the diverse community of Queens in the 1800s, where kids can try their hands at real recipes, methods, and concepts from the 19th century.
