About the Event

Our offering of Royal Afternoon Tea in collaboration with Aixois French Restaurant, which is just down the block from Tea Market, features five Vegetarian courses, each carefully paired with what I feel is the perfect tea to accompany each dish.

  • Strawberry Scone with Butter and Strawberry Jam paired with Oolong Goddess
  • Gazpacho, a chilled soup bursting with the flavors of Summer Veggies paired with White Mountain
  • The classic Cucumber Sandwich with Dill Cream Cheese Spread served with Kettle Chips paired with Afternoon Black Tea
  • Spinach and Green Onion Quiche style Tart with Gruyere Cheese paired with Morrocan Mint Green Tea
  • House-made Peach Cobbler topped with Vanilla Ice Cream and a sprinkle of Cinnamon paired with Peach Nectar Oolong Tea

As each course and tea is presented, I’ll share information about the tea: how it enhances the dish, a unique story about the tea, specific health properties, or an interesting history or legend. I'll also share how to steep the tea yourself at home which will come in handy because you will receive a sample of each tea to enjoy and recreate the experience at home. On the day of the event, you will also receive 10% off your entire purchase at Tea Market, right up the street from Aixois.

The opportunity to partner with Aixois French Restaurant provides many things the former experience was lacking. First, a truly elegant space. We will be holding our event in Aixois’ newly renovated, charming, and sophisticatedly appointed front room.  The space will be reserved just for us!  Second, delicious food will be expertly prepared by one of Kansas City’s favorite chefs, Emmanuel Langlade.

Now about the part where Afternoon Tea becomes Royal Tea.  There is a tradition of adding a sparkling adult beverage to a lovely tea experience and elevating it to a Royal Tea.  Because sometimes more is better, you will have the opportunity to purchase a Mimosa! We can’t wait to see what you think of this reimagined concept. We sincerely hope you can join us.

Things to know before making your reservation:

  • This event is for those 18 years and older.
