Hopsewee Plantation - Tea Room
Hopsewee Plantation, S.C.
What have I been thinking? They serve a proper afternoon tea at Hopsewee Plantation and I've never been there? I remember trying once but the gate was closed and sometimes they have special events so best give a call before you head up the coast towards Georgetown. I made it in yesterday and dodged flocks of mosquitoes the size of hummingbirds to get these pictures and it was worth it. Seriously. Take bug spray.
I didn't take the formal house tour but enjoyed lunch in the tea shop (below). Check out the menus here. I'd like to go back with enough time to explore the property.
