Elizabeth Knight - Tea with Friends - Afternoon Tea New York, High Tea, Tea Tours in New York


“Thank you again for a beautiful experience in NYC! I can’t wait to come again and have a repeat performance! Everyone in our group thoroughly enjoyed learning about the tea traditions and the appreciation of tea …”  

“…my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. . . In addition to having an opportunity to learn about and experience tea....and the amazing traditions behind it.........we found that one of the greatest gifts of the day was your true "presence"  with all of us on the tour.    Although we had never met you before........we feel as though we spent the afternoon with a dear friend.  Thank you for what you do....and the wonderful way you do it!”

"We all had a wonderful time and are still talking about everything we did and learned. It was better than I could have imagined. We are ready to plan our next tour. Thanks again!

“I think my NY tea tour not only added to my tea knowledge, but re-energized my enthusiasm as a tea educator. It is a field where we are always learning and, truly, I think that's half the fun.”

“The tour was very informative, and has really jump started my creativity. Our little group was the perfect size and everyone was so lovely.”

“I was so impressed with the hidden gems you introduced me to - our guests will love this tour.”

“It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Elizabeth was such a delight - so warm, thoughtful, caring and knowledgeable! I am looking forward to returning to tour another area of the City and to enjoy tea with my new friend Elizabeth! I would highly recommend that you contact her to plan your group event!”

"I travel a lot and stay away from guided tours. However, the NYC tea tour with Elizabeth was thoroughly enjoyable, informative, and delicious. She knows her subject and provides interesting historical facts, as well as current bits of fun trivia. The tour included an antique shop and a Parisian tea stop, culminating in a lovely afternoon tea in downtown. It was perfect."  

"Elizabeth Knight took us to China.....town, NYC.  But, for all intent and purposes, we were escorted into the magic of China via Elizabeth's impressive knowledge of the food, tea and customs, not to mention the great places to shop and grab some excellent green tea ice cream along the way!  She is thoroughly professional and completely warm and charming as she expertly guides us in the way of Tea and China!  I highly recommend this tour to one and all. 

“What a wonderful way to spend the day!  In the midst of the constant hustle of New York City, Elizabeth offers a relaxing, professional, informative and fun look at tea and its traditions. I discovered some great shops that I didn't know existed, and had a delicious afternoon tea with a terrific group of (new) friends.  I highly recommend these tours for gifts, as a special event for a group, or simply as a way to expand your tastebuds!”

“I took the English and French Traditions tour and was thoroughly impressed!  New York has an abundance of tea related activities that we glided through with our incredibly knowledgeable guide Elizabeth Knight. Ending the day with afternoon tea was a wonderful way to conclude a memorable day.  I would highly recommend this tour to the novice or expert sipper.”

The Tea in the City tour offers a rich history of cultures & customs and yet, at the same time, the next hip trend in the city. Elizabeth is a delight as she shares her knowledge and passion for this commodity. You do not have to be a serious tea lover to enjoy this!

“…sincerest thanks for a most informative and captivating program… so professional and intriguing. I hope that more libraries in the area host similar programs so that their patrons can experience the uniqueness of the program and the benefit of your extensive knowledge…”

"Thank you, again, for a wonderful program. You are truly a gem  (and so is your husband)... I have had a number of calls this am telling me just how much they enjoyed your presentation and the refreshments."

“Wanted to let you know how wonderful your tea course was…you were so very engaging and your love of tea…was quite informative and evident.”

“I had the pleasure of listening to you at the Celtic Tea held at Tea by Two in Bel Air, Maryland. I want to compliment you on how you weave storytelling into your presentation. Your tone, pace, and ability to paint pictures with your words made your presentation very engaging...the time seemed to fly by with interesting information woven into your stories.”

“Your 'Eyes Feast First' presentation was a terrific addition to this series of special events geared to career women... Your presentation was informative and entertaining, while highlighting a wide variety of merchandise featured in our Home Fashion departments. I know the audience was glad they attended the event.”

“You are an excellent speaker and you really know your stuff! I loved all your ideas and wish I was as creative as you are! I hope you will be back... to share more of your wonderful ideas.”

“I am writing to extend my deepest appreciation for your support of the Beaux Arts Art of Table Decorating. Your sponsorship of this event secured its success both financially and critically.”

“Elizabeth Knight is a master at what she does! Having heard her speak in my town, I was so impressed by her that I naturally had to buy the book. The book has proved to be an invaluable resource as well.” 

“Ms. Knight's presentations were extremely informative and creative. She possesses an expansive knowledge of 'taking tea'.”

“Thank you so much for your delightful presentation." I appreciate so much your organization and professionalism as well—making the arrangements so stress free for me.”

“Very personable ... great relevant information useable right now regardless of where you are with your business.”

“I have been to many merchandising lectures/classes and this is by far the best I've seen.”

“More time-she seems to be overflowing with good information-I'm sure there is so much more we can learn from her.”

“Everyone attending should take this class! Elizabeth is outstanding.”

“Most effective thing at this conference.”

“I attended your marketing course ...I'm happy to report that rearranging steeping pots and cups produced a 300% increase in sales! Textiles, properly displayed, produced a similar increase. I used the grouping methods you discussed in Las Vegas, which really made the items stand out. Furthermore, through merchandise placement, I can actually predict which displays will be viewed first then second and so on. I'm now able to lead customers through the store without a word...”

“She was a well-prepared and thoughtful speaker… Most helpful for me was a series of questions designed to help focus, plan, and to define one’s personal goals. I’d recommend taking this seminar if she offers it at next year's Tea Expo.”
