I am a huge tea fan (Happy Iced Tea Day, by the way!!) and I love a proper tea. The Jefferson Hotel here in Richmond does a beautiful tea...and Simply Tea, in bucolic Amelia, does a sweet, very feminine seating. Blue Willow, however, is attached to an amazing antiques store...so it's a win-win all the way around!
Make a reservation and go! Be sure to ask for Sid, the owner...if he's not over in England, buying for his antiques store. My dear friend, Yolie, and I stayed so long, enjoying our conversation as well as the goodies, that he said if we were still there at the close of day, he'd just consider us family and put us to work, washing dishes. We would have been delighted to stay and do just that!!
