Tea With Friends in Asheville, NC

Thirty plus years after our high school graduation, I reconnected girl friends for our 50th birthdays for a two night trip to a cabin in the mountains. Since then, we have made an effort to get together once a year for lunch and a reunion of high school friends. We decided it was time for another weekend girl friends getaway. I am the trip planner in the group. I planned a trip to Asheville, NC for the Christmas Candlelight tour of the Biltmore in November. I included tea reservations at Chelsea's Village Tea Room located in the Historic Biltmore Village. This was the first afternoon tea for most of the girl friends. (I just love introducing the tea experience to friends!) A traditional afternoon tea was served including an assortment of tea sandwiches, cookies, cake English trifle and scones with cream and jam. We ordered a selection of teas served in individual pots. It was a delightful afternoon tea and a fabulous weekend with friends. On the drive home, we made a list of destinations for future trips.

Linda has planned several special events for us over the past several years.We really appreciate her> She always plans something that appeals to each one of us (like shopping for shoes). I have been to a few tea rooms, but this was special because I was with special friends. Ticky
