A Spot of Tea pops up at Spice Station
Friday through May 6, Spice Station in Silver Lake is hosting A Spot of Tea pop-up tea shop in celebration of all things British (it's Brit Week and Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee). A Spot of Tea -- "a cozy vintage tea room with an authentic Britsh vibe" -- was created by the Anglo American trio music stylist Gemma Dempsey, creative director Jenny Charlesworth and producer Stacy Ruppel.
Spice Station teas will be served with finger sandwiches, cakes and other Brit treats. Freshly baked goods will come from Silver Lake’s Forage, Santa Monica’s Tudor House and Kings Head, and Culver City’s Platine.
On certain days, afternoon tea will be accompanied by live musical performances or tea time story recitals. U.K.-themed gifts for sale include Marfa Brands soap made with licorice tea and British violinist Maya Magub's ceramics. Seating is limited: To reserve a spot, email ASpotofTea@mail.com with your day and time request and the number in your party.
