Elegance, Grace, and English ambience Nana presents for her clients who attend her tea parties. Every nook and cranny is filled with delightful tea related items, decorating the walls, and tables alike. The food is truly outstanding with many and varied sandwiches, savories, desserts, and of course, her homemade scones and toppings are always anticipated. Nana definitely knows how to put on a tea! She also has hats and boas for your use during your tea. The courses arrive at a leisurely pace and individual teapots are kept filled and hot. The selection of teas changes every time you attend your tea time. You will have a mini tea history lesson, plus manners and etiquette will be discussed. There is also has a small gift shoppe in her home for you to explore during your tea party. Nana’s is the epitome of the tea parties and everyone needs to experience the greatest of the best at least once in a lifetime.

      Tea at Nana's is a real treat! The tea room is beautiful and the food is fresh and fantastic. Her desserts are to die for. One yummy dessert was lemon cloud. This was served in a wine glass with a mini cookie for decoration. So good! You receive your own little container jam packed with a nice selection of tea. Each person received a tea pot filled with hot water to brew your tea. Nana and Sir William go all out to give you a wonderful tea experience. It was worth the drive from San Diego. I can not wait to go to Nana's again.

      We just visited Nana's tea today. We celebrated my daughter's #12 birthday with her friend. The food was great. The girls were all educated about tea parties and manners. I would definitly recommend Nana's tea to anyone who is interested in having a tea party.

      My Mother and I along with two girlfriends had the joyful experience of a tea party at Nana's! Rose petals adorned the walkway as we entered. From the start to finish we had a wonderful time learning about Tea time and enjoying whimsical music in the background. The scones were right from the oven with a variety of spreads to put on them and all the dainty home made sandwiches and desserts were delicious. We all felt we made a new friend in our lovely hostess Barbara. We could tell she delights in these tea parties and that it is her passion to love and serve others! Barbara takes pictures of your party and sends them~ via email! She absolutely thinks of everything!! By all means this is a place where memories are made!! You must go to Nana's elegant afternoon tea party! It is an experience you will never forget!! Thank you Barbara!!

      Nana lives up to the name of 'Elegance.' At Nana's you don't just 'Go to Tea.' You spend aa relaxing afternoon socializing, learning about etiquette and customs, and enjoying a taste of history. It is truly and 'experience.' I especially enjoyed her scones and homemade jellies. I would like to return.

      I was at Nana's for the 6th time. This time in her new home. Each room is filled with lovely Victorian pieces...beautiful. There was a large assortment of teas available. Nana makes all of the yummy foods she serves. You are never rushed. I've been to other Tea Rooms but none can compare with Nana's

      Barbara Black (Nana) has done it again! The Ruby Belles have attended her Afternoon Tea for the 4th time recently, and it just gets better and better. Her new home is gorgeous and Barbara is so gracious and pleasant. Our tea party at Nana's is the social event of the year, and we always look forward to it. The food is fresh and perfect, her presentation is flawless and the experience is exquisite.

      I was so excited to attend this high tea at Nana's. I had made the reservations in April, I could hardly wait for our Sept. tea. Our Red Hatters group had a wonderful time, and the tea was exquisite. The pictures Barbara sent were marvelous, making the day a true event. It was a true pleasure to be this events' hostess.

      My sister and I attended one of Nana's lovely teas the middle of August. It was one of the highlights of my trip to CA. My sister and I had a GREAT time being in her home and getting to meet Nana. Teas are so much fun. But of all the teas I have been to, Nana's has been the best. Nana goes beyond the typical guest's expectations to provide and enjoyable, relaxing, and educational tea. Where ese do you get a short history of tea and proper tea etiquette? Beyond that-Nana provides a choice of hats, boas, and teacups for her guest to use. It got better with picture taking and exqisite food. This was truly a memorable tea, intentionally olanned by a most gracious hostess--Nana. Annette from Kansas

      This was the most delightful tea my sister and I have ever been to. Nana's home was beautiful and she made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived. The food was beautifully displayed, very delicious and you definitely won't go away hungry! Many thanks to Nana and her daughter for making our afternoon tea a special one. We definitely plan on doing it again!

      This was so much fun for our Red Hat group. We loved the way Barbara treated us, the wonderful home and the manner in which she taught us about the history of the Tea. We all loved the food and her presentation of the food was equal to a French cafe I was a customer at in Europe. Don't miss this experience at Nana's.

      Nana serves a wonderful variety of Stash tea (in bags) from which to choose and includes a teapot for each guest. Her homemade food is delightful, beautifully presented, as well as plentiful, and is served on nicely decorated tables. Among the many foods served at the tea I attended was Freshly Baked Scones and a lovely Butternut Squash Soup, along with savories and sweet things. From the moment I walked up the front walkway, sprinkled with rose petals, I sensed the Victorian feel to the home, which transfers one back to a gentler time. Nana offered hats and boas to the ladies and also took pictures of us. Her appealing Angel Garden almost made me feel like a child again and I could imagine it as a secret hiding place. The ladies in our tea group were made to feel special and pampered. Thank you, Nana, for a lovely day which will be long remembered.

      Just visited Nana's with a group of San Diego area Red Hatters and I can't say enough positive things about Nana, aka Lady Barbara, and her ELEGANT Afternoon Tea Party. The food was delicious (all homemade), the atmoshper delightful(the web pictures don't do it justice), and Lady Barbara is the epitomy of a Victorian hostess. Her knowledge of the era and origins of tea/teaparties made this more than just tea. My group will definately make this an annual event.

      Our newcomers' lunch group spent a wonderful time enjoying all the delicious homemade foods and sipping a variety of delicious teas prepared and served by Queen Barbara. I was raving about how wonderful it was to my Bible study group and now they want me to set up a time to take them. Thanks Nana for a wonderful time. Clyda

      Our Red Hat chapter had a delightful time at Nana's. She is a wonderful hostess and serves the best scones in town. Her knowledge of true afternoon teas added so much to our time with her and we loved her new gift shop/room. This is our 2nd time there and I'm sure we'll go again.

      Barbara was an excellent hostess and her home was beautifully decorated. Her warm personality and knowledge of the Victorian era made thia the best tea house I have been to. The ladies in my party range from 9-84 and we all agreed that Nana's hospitality and homemade goodies were fantastic. Thanks Nana for making my Grandmother's birthday perfect.

      We had a wonderful afternoon tea with Nana. She served delicious homemade delights with facinating information about tea parties and tea etiquette. I believe Nana enjoyed herself almost as much as we did. Her stories and delightful personality made each of us feel right at home.

      A few weeks ago, our Red Hat Chapter went to Nana's for an absolutely wonderful afternoon! The food was WONDERFUL, and Nana did a great job at making all of us feel welcome. I highly recommend Nana's Elegant Afternoon Tea Parties.
