We've been to the White Oak Tea Tavern several times and it never disappoints (and I'm not even a big tea fan). It's located on Route 220 outside Daleville, VA in a beautiful log cabin. I suggest reservations as they don't have a lot of seating.
They offer a warm chicken salad with spinach and artichoke hearts in hollowed out baguette and a cold chicken salad with craisins and pecans served with some yummy homemade bread. They also offer a variety of homemade scones and bagels with schmears.
As you can imagine, the selection of teas for steeping at your table is extensive. They also offer at least one iced tea and Sprecher's root beer, orange and creme sodas. Since we were visiting during the holidays , they offered a tasty warm wassail with a candy orange slice as a garnish on the glass- such a nice touch.
You can purchase tins of the tea, tea pots, and other tea paraphernalia, plus there's a little gift shop in front. This is a particularly comfortable place for women for some reason, although I've seen men happily sipping tea there as well. It's a good place to have a nice chat. I highly recommend it.
