The Tea Tavern

Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend? You East Coasters gearing up for the big storm? I'll be saying prayers all week for friends and family in the line of fire. Hopefully everyone is able to evacuate or hunker down safely!

As for today's post, if you're in the Roanoke area, be sure and stop by the White Oak Tea Tavern. Kristin and I went there during my Virginia trip and I just couldn't help but share these pictures from our lunch. Everything was just so good and presented so beautifully! We got both Autumn Orchard and Lavender teas, and both were marvelous.

Have a great Monday...





 the most delicious warm chicken salad with spinach and artichoke my mouth has ever beheld. It's  served in a loaf of bread with honey on the side for dipping extra bread in.

  9. These pictures are delectable. I do love a good pot of tea (I'm British, it's in my blood).

    Currently swaddled in a blanket waiting for the worst of the storm (I'm just outside Philly). It feels like a snow day.

  14. Okay, you and Kristin apparently went to every awesome place that exists in VA! This makes lunch and tea look like something magical.

    I had a great weekend, complete with a trip to the pumpkin patch! Miss Sandy certainly is wreaking some havoc over that. I'm telling myself that the WIND we're having today is just God's way of reminding me to pray for them and be thankful that wind is all I get. :)

  15. Looks exactly like my kind of heavenly day! We have a tea room nearby and just celebrated my grandmother's birthday there last week. So fun!

  16. That place looks and sounds (at least through your words it does) amazing. I could use a cup of tea right about now. It's finally cooled off a bit here in Florida, so the thought of tea doesn't make me get a fever anymore. (:

    Those little teapots are just adorable too!

  23. I am dreaming about that artichoke chicken salad. Is there any way you might try to recreate it, or tell us what's in it, so we can try to make an at-home version?

    I've been unsuccessfully googling recipes for 20minutes since I saw that picture :)

  26. We own a house out in the Chrisitansburg area (a little west on 460 from Roanoke) and will definitely have to stop in this place next time Brandon and I drive out there. What a neat find!

  27. This tea tavern looks awesome. I need to find a new Philadelphia tea house - the two that I knew of now closed. Sad story.

  28. I'm a sucker for cute tea places, and this one looks like it serves delicious food too, so if I ever find myself in VA I'll definitely be checking it out.
