Event Details: 

Spring in Scotland evokes the perfume of heather in the highlands, bagpipes bidding farewell to those bound for the colonies, and all things outdoors. Join us under the Thoroughgood House’s replica Revolutionary Era tent for a rustic high tea in the highlands. Satisfy your inner sassenach by witnessing the ancient art of steam distillation! Watch as the scent of a rose is captured, then delight your senses with the exhilarating fragrance while you sip our carefully curated teas.

Live music will also be provided by Scottish fiddler Brad Schoultz, who will liven up the social hour with expert fiddling of traditional Scottish reels and jigs, while Pipers from Tidewater Pipes and Drums set the stage as you enter and exit our little spring highland retreat!

Teas selected to symbolize everyone’s favorite novels-turned television series will have everyone feeling like their favorite highlander or healer.

Perfumer Rebecca Suerdieck demonstrates 18th century perfume making techniques, with reproduction and all-natural fragrances available for sale. Maddy Laing, from the Virginia Beach History Museums, will share some Scottish connections to the colonies, information about the style of tea service and selections. Event will last approximately 90 minutes.

This event takes place at the Thoroughgood House, located at 1636 Parish Road, Virginia Beach, VA 23455.
