High tea time

I took my mom to a tea party.

I found the deal for Laura’s Tea Room in Ridgeway, S.C. via Groupon so it was half-off for a high tea experience. It was well worth it.

The little shop in the tiny historic town is really interesting, full of tea sets and accessory, plus handmade soaps and gift ideas. Upstairs is an open space like something from a movie — an old-fashioned tea room.

Before heading upstairs you can pick a hat and scarf and take a picture with who else — the Queen. Then you pick out your tea cup and the two pots of tea for the table. We went with a rose tea and a Charleston green tea. The first tea was called blue lady tea and it was served cold and hot. It was my favorite.

The high tea comes with several courses — a chilled strawberry soup and scones, a salad and quiche, and then an assortment of finger sandwiches and desserts. Not completely filling but a good amount of food for a two-hour lunch.

It was quite a cool place. We’ve already discussed returning with other friends. It is a bit pricey though so the Groupon was a great deal after all. It’s about $20 a person for the high tea time.

Who doesn’t love a good Anglophile afternoon, though?

    That high tea looks delicious 🙂 There is nothing like one of these. Especially with a picture of the Queen.
