What a surprise to find a tea room in Calabash, NC. We drove by the tea room on our way to N. Myrtle Beach while on vacation at Sunset Beach. My husband actually saw the sign and made mention of it. We drove by the next day and found out the hours of operation and we were able to come for tea the very next day. Luckily, they were able to take us walk-ins. The tea room had three distinct areas decorated in soft victoriana. Just right and not overpowering. We started with water served in hand painted water glasses. I just love the unexpected things. The slice of lemon served in a bird squeezer. You have to see it to understand. The food varied from scones, savories and sweets and the presentation was supurb and detail oriented. One of the tea sandwiches was carefully tied into a lavender bow. What a wonderful touch. The teas we chose were loose leaf which is what I have come to expect from the finest tea rooms. My husband and I had such a lovely experience that we joked about making the trip every year (with my in-laws) just to have tea in this lovely tea room.
