Tea at Hopsewee Plantation is by far the best tea I have ever experienced. Mrs. Beattie prepares delicious and very unique southern savories, which are a real culinary treat. The scones, with a variety of equally delicious jellies, clotted cream, and lemon curd, are delightful. The sweets are all handmade, delicious,freshly prepared,and truly outstanding. Mrs. Beattie makes your tea experience a very memorable one. She is a very gracious hostess. Her outstanding culinary skills, along with the lovely ambiance and scenic outdoor view, make this tearoom the best you will experience in south carolina.
