School Visits

Beginning in Spring 2007, local schools can arrange visits to the tearoom for demonstrations by W&L undergraduates trained in temae, the tea procedure. The University has developed "Tea in a Box," a program to help interest young students early on in their education in the cultural traditions of East Asia, and prepare them for a visit to the Reeves Center tearoom.
