By April of 2010, Waukesha's SpringHouse TeaRoom has held 118 distinctive personalized tea events or tea parties. Participants are treated to a two hour slow paced tea. During the Tea, we serve 4 or more different teas from our stock of over 120 teas. We serve 3 or four different home-made signature recipe scones, always fresh from the oven. We've created some special flavored butters for the warm scones, in 2010, we have an orange cardamon, cranberry butter and a papaya pecan that our geusts rave about. Then we let the scones settle and prepare three different finger sandwiches, respecting history and fresh flavors. We follow that with warm savories and fruit. Closing the event, we have fresh sweets again from our own recipes. We have learned that there is a real interest in tea, so we usually spend a little time shwoing appreciation for the drink and it's origins. Come to TEA! We also teach TEA CLASSES for the extention service at the University of Wisconsin - Waukesha. We offer three classes for fall and spring semesters. Contact UW-W for more detail!

      Not only were the food and teas excellent and unique and the service wonderful but it was also educational. It was fascinating to learn so much about tea. I can't wait to go back.

      Going to tea here was excellent! The teas served were diverse, each was well explained, and the food accompanying the teas were delicious as well. Highly recommend!

      My husband took me to the Steaming Cup (which is connected to the Springhouse Tea Room) on a date when we were visiting family in the Waukesha area. We often visit coffee houses where ever we are, but he knows my love of tea and wanted to take me to a tea house, something we had not had much opportunity to do previously. As I said I was not familiar with many teas, Kerry went through a tasting with us, introducing us to a variety of teas similar to the one I mentioned liking best. He helped me and my husband understand more about the teas and their qualities - and then brewed me a wonderful cup of one of my favorite choices. What struck me most about my visit was the absolute love of tea that Kerry has - and shares with all who come in his shop. It is a passion, not just a business. The passion comes out in the way he makes the teas - so tasty! I wish that we lived closer and could attend a full High Tea / come to the Steaming Cup regularly. I am sure we'll be stopping in again the very next time we visit our family in the Waukesha area!

      My Wife and I were able to attend a Class on High Tea offered through the UW Waukesha at the Steaming Cup which is connected to the Springhouse Tea Room. Kerry taught the class very well about the history of tea, scone recipes, and I was especially glad to get some pointers on what I could do better to enjoy the tea that I make and serve at home even more. The class was extremely informative and entertaining as well. All of the treats and sandwiches were excellent and we recommend the class highly and look forward to booking a tea party at the SpringHouse Tea Room in the near future.

      My bridal shower tea was at the Spring House Tea Room and I couldn't have been more pleased. Perfect combination of warm hospitality, lovely atmosphere, and delicious food and tea. We had an impromptu lesson on tea--where it's produced, where the specific teas we drank were grown (we chose Teatulia Green, White, and Black), and how best to prepare it. Fabulous. I will definitely be back!

      This was our first trip there and we absolutely loved everything about it. The afternoon tea was wonderful and the host/hostess were awesome! We were there a little over two hours and we all agreed we had a very rewarding and relaxing time with delicious tea & food and outstanding service. We'll be back!

      The most gracious tea ceremony I've ever experienced. Each course was accompanied by a new tea designed to complement that course. Service was outstanding, and if it weren't a five-hour drive, I'd be there every weekend.
