Essential Luxuries of the Upper Class: Tea with the Howers

Less Script Tea with the Howers Spring 2024.png

Tea was considered a luxury item yet necessary to entertain and maintain important social connections among the wealthy classes in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  
We will explore its implications through interpretation of documents, the Hower House Museum collection and its spaces, along with items on loan from the family.

The dates for our exhibit are March 1 through September 19.
