The Tea Round was founded by Serina Julien. Serina moved to the USA in 2015 with her husband and two children. She was born and raised in the United Kingdom and she is what you would call a 'true Londoner'.
Serina has long had an affinity for the British Afternoon Tea experience, it began as a hobby but soon became a passion and she has been lucky enough to have enjoyed true British Afternoon Teas at some of London's top hotels.
' Having moved to the United States I really missed being able to have an authentic afternoon tea with friends where the table was beautifully dressed and we could stop the chaos in our lives and be calm and indulge for a few hours. We would be served a variety of teas and be brought cakes and treats, allowing us to feel special and catered for.
In the U.K tea is a part of everyday life, it is a way in which we socialize. I believe everyone should get to experience a time where they can relax, spend time with friends and family, create memories and bring back that exquisite feeling. With this in mind I decided that I would bring this beautiful and quaint British cultural experience to America.
With life being so busy, we all deserve to stop and be present in the moment... be it with a lovely slice of cake and a nice cup of tea, served the Great British way'
Serina serves as host at most of her Afternoon Tea Parties.
