At the risk of sounding negative ... .

Tea as a drink comes into use in western Europe in the 17th century. Tea 
as the name of a social occasion probably originates in the 19th 
century. I am not in favor of encouraging the tendency of people in the 
SCA to smear all of history into a vague blur in which Jane Austen and 
Queen Boadiccea are contemporaries, so don't do queen's teas.

I don't suppose you could persuade the relevant authorities to find a 
period label for what they want to do?
