Herb Society – Murder Mystery Halloween High Tea
Cost: $18/Garden Member; $22/General Public
Oct 26 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Northeast Wisconsin Unit of the Herb Society of America

Is murder your cup of tea?

Behind the politeness of an Afternoon Tea lurks a little deadly intent…or is it an accident that a body is found while guests are sipping their Earl Grey?  Join the Northeast Wisconsin Herb Society for a different approach to the traditional High Tea. In addition to the customary lessons in etiquette, tea history, and offerings of flavorful teas, scones, savories, and sweets, attendees will be the audience and possibly participants in a murder mystery at the tea table. Join us for an evening of intrigue and “good eats” during the season where anything is possible.
