Herons at The Umstead Hotel and Spa — Cary, NC

Tea at a luxury hotel restaurant is a tea lover’s dream come true, especially when the atmosphere is warm and cozy and the tea service is truly knowledgeable. After all, if I wanted amateur tea, I could get that at some chain restaurant, like Denny’s, where tea is a low-quality bag (not like Mighty Leaf or Harney & Sons) in a warmish cup of water. Read how it all went in the December 2009 issue of TeaMuse, the tea newsletter from Adagio Teas.
I just had to try the flowering tea. Watching this drama unfold, literally, was worth every penny of the pricey per person charge.
