Nearer to Tea


You have your coffeemaker set up so it starts a-brewin' before you even hit the snooze button. And in school you barely studied for a test without at least a pot of the black stuff pumping through your veins. So, yeah, coffee is pretty useful. It tastes all right. It's fine, really. But why settle for the commonplace? Why merely enjoy a lowly mug of bean juice when you can celebrate living during a Festive Holiday Tea? Experience the allure of a life of leisure at the Piper Palm House (4255 Arsenal Street, in Tower Grove Park), where traditional teas are hosted every Thursday in December (December 6 through 27). These afternoon affairs feature noshes, both sweet and savory, to accompany your cuppa, and they last for three hours (from 1 to 4 p.m.), which should be enough time for you to consider your charmed life and truly taste the deliciousness of the better hot drink. These experiences cost $16.95; make your reservations in advance by calling 314-664-7680.
Thursdays. Starts: Dec. 6. Continues through Dec. 27, 2007
