I can tell you from experience that you will meet the nicest people and the time you spend at your parties will be delightful. I have put together a "how to" manual for people who are interested in starting a tea party hostess business. This manual is based on real life experience. Also check out my new Tea Training Seminar.
I started my tea business after I retired from the U.S. Air Force. I've turned my passion for tea and tea parties into profit. I will take you step by step so that you can get started quickly and smoothly in your new business. Even though I am new at the tea business, I have studied extensively about tea. I have been featured in "Woman's World Magazine", "Romantic Homes", "Tea Time", "Tea Magazine" and several local newspapers. I've attended Tea 101 seminar at Elmwood Inn Fine Teas. I have also taken and given classes on afternoon tea. This manual contains information on who to contact before you get started, what equipment you need to get started, marketing ideas, how to host a tea party, recipes, a packing list and much, much more.
