Just in Time for Tea

Something is brewing in Leesburg, Virginia!

victoriantea-4.jpgOatlands Historic House and Gardens, a National Trust Historic Site, was established in the early 1800’s by George Carter as a wheat plantation and became the base for numerous business enterprises until the time of the Civil War. Now the site offers seasonal afternoon teas, as well as mansion tours and self-guided tours.

I had the pleasure of attending one of Oatlands’ holiday teas prior to Christmas. The historic atmosphere is the ideal setting for enjoying scones, tea cakes, and a cup of the plantation’s own afternoon tea blend.

Fortunately, teas at Oatlands are not exclusively a holiday event! Upcoming spring teas will be held April 4th, 5th, 18th, and 19th.

Visit their site at www.oatlands.org for more information on how to have your own fabulous afternoon in this picturesque setting.
