NAS Pensacola USO hosts an English Tea Party quarterly where service members stop by to enjoy some English tea and treats! Susan, a frequent volunteer of the USO, heads the tea party with help from several other volunteers. There is always a vast assortment of sandwiches, quiches, cupcakes, cookies, chocolates and of course tea and coffee! Susan and her team begin preparing for this months in advance. This event is held quarterly and is something the service members look forward to. Susan kicks off the Tea Party with some history on England and why afternoon tea is a significant part of the English culture. She also teaches some tea time etiquette! After everybody enjoys their food, she quizzes the group on English trivia and rewards those who answer correctly with prizes. The service members are always very appreciative. You simply cannot go wrong with delicious and authentic food!
