Winter Tea 2021 at The Castle

With El Paso County reducing its COVID-19 restriction level to Orange as of January 4, 2021, we are able to start serving tea again, with reduced seating numbers. In order to accommodate more guests, we will be serving tea in the Castle Great Hall.

The weather outside may be frightful but our Winter Tea is delightful!

It’s a new year and a fresh start. Come escape the cold Colorado temperatures with a charming tea in the Castle Great Hall. Enjoy heartwarming conversations as you take time to slow down and reconnect with friends after a stressful holiday season.

Tables will be set up to accommodate social distancing requirements in the Castle Great Hall through February 28, with the exception of Saturday, February 13. (That day tea will be served in the Castle Music Room.)

Price is $36 per person plus applicable taxes. All service charges are included. Winter tea is served 5 days a week, Wednesday through Sunday. Reservations are available every 15 minutes from 11:00 am through 3:00 pm. 

Maximum party size is 14. For larger groups, please contact our sales team.
