Nestled in Biltmore Village near Asheville, North Carolina, is a little place called Chelsea’s. Afternoon tea is their specialty. The small room is filled with petite vintage tables and chairs. A blonde woman with an accent hands you a one page menu. There are about 200 tea choices crammed onto the page and 2 food choices squished up at the top right hand corner: a tower of little cakes, cookies, and other pastries or a fruit and cheese platter. The atmosphere is soothing and is the perfect place to meet up with friends or catch up with family as I did. And if you one day have the chance to stop in for afternoon tea, don’t forget to wander through the store that surrounds the tea room. You will find tons of little trinkets – everything from plates and tea cups (that makes sense) to stuffed animals and pill containers (not sure how those have to do with tea). This tea room is definitely worth a visit!
