Tea at the Duchess
The Nagle Warren Mansion features afternoon teas throughout the year and especially the holidays.
We feature the finest British teas such as Harney & Son, Taylor of Harrogate, Ahmad, Clipper, and VahDam.
Our scheduled teas are themed differently and each presents it’s own menu.
Mrs. Nagle's Afternoon Tea
A house tradition began by Mrs. Nagle in the summer of 1888. The menu changes with the season and a very special Afternoon Tea. You’ll be seated in the Parlor, Sitting Room, or Library and while you indulge in finely steeped tea and traditionally favorite treats, you can enjoy the company of friends or new acquaintances.
Mrs. Nagle's Tea's are every Wednesday from 2 to 4pm. The price is $39.95 for adult and $21.95 for children 14-18, and reservations are needed. Children 14 and over welcome with adult supervision. And ladies, hats are encouraged.
Private parties for Afternoon Tea may be arranged by calling the mansion.
Mrs. Randall's Mother-Daughter Garden Tea
Mrs. Brigadier General George Randall or to us Emilie. Emilie was a lovely gentle woman loved by all. On Sunday afternoon she would often invite the officers wives and daughters from the fort to join her in a garden tea.
During pleasant times in the season from June thru October, we will present Emilie's Mother-Daughter Garden Tea. But not limited, what a wonderful opportunity to be joined by multiple generations. We love that.
Our Emilie Teas will be announced on social media. Call our office for reservations when the announcement is made. Limited Seating is available. Teas are $65. per mother-daughter couple and $30. per extra person.
Claire's High Tea
Claire Morgan Warren was a social butterfly most of her life. As a Washington wife when coming home, she entertained Cheyenne with parties and for the ladies, high tea. We continue this tradition in her honor.
Our High Tea is adult (18 and over only) and takes place the second Sunday of the month from 1-3pm. This is the same high tea that is presented at Balmoral Castle. This presentation of tea treasures with it's larger menu includes Champagne.
Claire High Tea is by reservation only by calling our office. This is an Adult Only tea and is $75 per person.
