7 Tea Rooms in New Hampshire

Afternoon tea is a custom steeped in history and sweetened with tradition. And while many opt for coffee to fuel their days, tea is actually the second most consumed beverage in the world—just after water. Its health benefits are unrivaled; and the relaxing sensation of a steamy cup of herbal goodness is second to none! This spring, why not celebrate the grace of the season with a visit to a New Hampshire Tea Room? Here are 7 to get you started.
