The Secret Tea Society was founded 10 years ago by Claire, in 2013. She wanted to create something that played to her passion of afternoon tea and socialising with like-minded women in a world where the marvel of digitistation seemed to have overtaken that of physical interaction.
Once referred to by her local newspaper as a 'more gin and less jam kinda gal' following the successful inauguration of one of Surrey's newest and largest WIs, she was determined to find a way to bring a gathering of ladies from all walks of life, together not just online but also through society meet ups - aka copious amounts of tea and cake!
... and so it was that The Secret Tea Society was borne.
Over the years ladies have enjoyed tea in a treehouse, tumbled down a rabbit hole for afternoon tea with the Mad Hatter, taken tea at the Dowager's residence in 1920s style, shared sweets and rose bud tea with Willy Wonka and picked flowers from a local flower farm followed of course by homemade tea and cake, to name but a few.
At The Secret Tea Society, we want nothing more than to make friends and connections, but most importantly, enjoy ourselves, making lasting memories. Take a peek at our Look Book to get an idea of what we've been up to for the past decade!
