Afternoon Tea Hidden Gem: The White House on Washington in Mebane, North Carolina

One of my followers on Instagram tipped me off on this beautiful afternoon tea service in the gorgeous White House on Washington in Mebane, North Carolina.

The house that is now The White House on Washington was originally built in the 1800s. It is a beautiful woman-owned, artist-owned space, after being fully renovated. It was abandoned and condemned for quite some time. See the photo below to view a side-by-side comparison of the same room.

I loved every detail; you can tell every detail was carefully curated. Down to the collection of teapots, you can choose from! I loved my little house-shaped teapot and spied another patron with a Van Gogh teapot.

I held back so many happy squeals while nibbling on their treats and drinking my gingerbread black tea. They are currently taking reservations for their tea service on their website via OpenTable!

Every savory tea sandwich and dessert was delicious as well as beautiful.

As of December 2023, you can treat yourself to an elegant tea service for an affordable $35 per person. A dreamy experience without breaking the bank. You can see my Instagram Reel featuring the White House on Washington here.
