Tea Room Season
Old St. Andrews, Charleston, SC
It's Tea Room season! Church ladies and gentlemen put on aprons and cook traditional lowcountry tearoom menus - shrimp and chicken sandwiches, okra and she crab soup, coconut cake, Huguenot tort and Mississippi Mud Pie. We order and eat exactly the same thing every year and we like it.
The church makes an impressive profit from all the volunteer labor and supports a healthy list of charities. It's like old home week each year and I see so many familiar faces.
