Afternoon Tea in DurhamA favorite pastime of mine is afternoon tea. I'll take a cup of Darjeeling any time of day. Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club (WADU) offers a proper tea that is simply lovely.
If you have any dietary restrictions, just let them know in advance. It's a lovely experience, a time for leisurely dining (a great way to pass time if you've accompanied a golfer to the area and you don't golf). They have offered tea for years and you can make it even more special with a sparkling wine or mimosa.
The scone flavors vary, most often to match the season. Presentation is pretty, with a flower adorning the dish.
Indulge in the miniature sandwiches, pies, cakes, and other delights, but pace yourself. It's the perfect time to take in every moment, including letting the tea steep before enjoying it.
Regardless of the types of desserts you like, you'll find plenty (you can always trade among yourselves!). Dress up then hang out on the lovely patio overlooking the golf course--perfect photo spot. Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club is one place that offers afternoon tea to all; you need not stay overnight to experience this lovely tradition.
