One year my mom took me for tea at The Williamsburg Inn, and I loved it. Now, my husband and I make it a point to plan an afternoon visit there for their Afternoon Royal Tea. It is such a beautiful inn, and even Queen Elizabeth has had tea there when she visited.
The setting was lovely and the view of their gardens amazing. The food was delicious and the tea was very nice. I went for the Earl Grey as that is my favorite.
The weather in Virginia was very hot, and the slowing down in mid-afternoon for tea was just what I needed. There is very little in life that is better that a leisurely tea with your sweetie. I am very glad mine likes to join me in this ritual.
These yummy treats really bolstered me up for what was to come that evening. My husband and I took part in an evening program called In Defense of Our Liberty in which we joined George Washington's militia! Yep, it must have been a sight to see me try and march and follow orders. I was very clumsy and off count in my marching, and nearly fainted when the officers came at me with bayonets (I am short so I was in the front row!). It was a real eye opener for me and I can't tell you how much I thanked our soldiers past, present and future that night.

If you are ever in Virginia, I highly recommend you pay a visit to Colonial Williamsburg, and of course have tea at the Inn!
