Join us for a moment of respite in the Duke Gardens teahouse, where, as a guest to Tea, you will experience the warmth of a traditional Japanese tea gathering. Enjoy the aesthetics, poetry and serenity of this rich tradition over an enticing bowl of whisked green tea and a Japanese confection. Guests will meet Nancy Hamilton, trained in the Urasenke Tradition of Tea, at the Doris Duke Center, and then be escorted to the teahouse for these intimate gatherings. Parking included. Pre-registration required. (919) 668-1707.
