Enjoy traditional afternoon tea in Raleigh or Cary!

In North Carolina, sweet tea is the popular beverage of choice for many. Yet many also enjoy the tradition of a proper afternoon tea service, and while sweet tea can be found almost anywhere one dines, it is not so easy to find a tearoom in North Carolina. There are a few, to be sure, and while some can be found in towns surrounding Raleigh, there doesn't currently appear to be a tearoom in Raleigh itself, nor in neighboring Cary, despite the abundance of nearly every other type of restaurant imaginable.

For many in the Raleigh, Cary, Apex, and surrounding areas, afternoon tea is more than just a hot cup of tea on a warm or cold afternoon. It’s a time to gather with friends or family and enjoy the English tradition of afternoon tea with more substantial, delicious fare and delightful conversation. An afternoon tea in Raleigh is a reason for a woman to wear a hat, or for best friends to enjoy a rainy afternoon sipping tea by the fire. Afternoon tea can also introduce children to something new, to entertain visiting family or friends, or it can just be something different to do with the people in your gardening club or your book club.

Afternoon tea can be enjoyed with any of the wonderful bouquet of flavors available, from fruitful florals to energizing herbals, comforting black teas such as Earl Grey and the spicy concoctions like Chai or Orange Spice, and the many red, white and green teas.

With a selection of fine teas, delectable foods, tea sandwiches and tasty scones, a tea party is a great way to enjoy company with friends or family, and also makes a memorable bridal shower or baby shower. If you don't mind driving a bit of distance, there are two tearooms you might consider for your afternoon tea or nice lunch.
