Silver Club High Tea

The Silver Club High Tea is a wonderful event where QCC members and guests enjoy a lovely afternoon tea, warm conversation, and (hopefully) a sunny day! Tea service includes traditional light tea sandwiches; pastries; fruit tarts; and petits fours along with assorted teas and coffee.

One of our longest-running events, the Silver Club High Tea's nomenclature comes from our predecessor organization, the MIT Silver Club (founded by female MIT employees with long years of service at the Institute), and a British tradition that sounds super fancy.

Fun fact: our High Tea is actually classified as a "low tea" or afternoon tea, the aristocratic version of tea featuring small sandwiches, appetizers, pastries, and desserts. Though, there is no small amount of scholarly debate between Traci and Anthony as to whether the fullness of the meal, and the seating at dining tables rather than a collection of sofas in a drawing room reclassifies it as a "high tea" despite the presence of finger sandwiches and lack of a main meat dish.
