Tea at the Rosemont

With pinkies out or in, you are sure to delight in the experience of our Manor House Teas. You will relax in the elegant setting of our historic manor enjoying the company of friends and loved ones with a comforting cup of tea.

Our teas are blended especially for Historic Rosemont Manor by Tea for All Reasons in Winchester, Virginia. Teas include our enchanting Byrd Blend black tea – a signature blend of Darjeeling, cream Earl Grey, rose petals and other natural flavors – and the refreshing Rosemont Blend green tea – a combination of Sencha, strawberry and papaya pieces, rose petals, candy pearl dragees and other natural flavors.

Our Rosemont chefs carefully plan a three-course menu, preparing sandwiches, scones and sweet treats that will complement each of the teas we serve. New recipes are crafted using seasonal fruits and vegetables. Guests may find savory sandwiches that pair well with our Byrd Blend black tea. Other menu items include our delectable scones that marry with our Rosemont Blend green tea.  We pair a sampling of desserts with one of several tisanes that change with the seasons. Additionally, we are able to accommodate gluten free and vegetarian diets.  

Here is what our guests have to say about our Manor House Teas:

“We had a wonderful afternoon tea in this incredibly beautiful historic home. The tea room is beautiful. The tea was served in three courses with a different tea for each course. After our tea we toured the bed-and-breakfast rooms, which are beautifully decorated. We enjoyed a fun, relaxing afternoon in a beautiful setting. We will definitely return!”

“Absolutely wonderful! I can’t wait to share this place with friends and family.”

“Delicious! We really enjoyed every course and all the lovely teas. Thank you for accommodating my gluten-free friend.”

No two Manor Teas are the exact same, giving guests a unique experience with every visit. Our teas are available for purchase for a treat at home or as gifts for loved ones.

Christmas Teas are held between Thanksgiving and early January. Other themed teas occur at different times in the year so be sure to check the tea schedule below periodically for new and exciting tea options!
