Edward Bramah conducting a tea seminarEdward Bramah has been conducting tea seminars - especially for Japanese visitors - for ten years. They are usually held on Fridays and start at 2pm for the whole of the afternoon.

The seminars usually include a talk about the old history of the United Kingdom tea trade with comments as to what has taken place in the past 50 years. A tour of the museum follows with a tasting session of orthodox Indian, Darjeeling and Ceylon teas.

A video film of tea production, again for the orthodox manufacture, is shown before enjoying English Afternoon tea in the tearoom. It is made up of cucumber sandwiches, hot crumpets, scones and clotted cream, followed by a selection of cakes.

The tea enjoyed is a traditional afternoon blend demanding a five minute infusion. After tea a discussion takes place regarding the origins of afternoon tea with a practical demonstration of tea making followed by general questions.

A certificate is awarded for those who attend.
