Afternoon Tea

Editors’ Choice

Wenham Tea House, Wenham

Standout Qualities: Said to be the oldest teahouse operating in the United States, this charming property celebrated 100 years in 2012 by getting a liquor license. Now, in addition to a dainty three-tiered assortment of freshly baked scones with preserves and homemade clotted cream, traditional tea sandwiches, miniature pastries, and a selection of more than 20 loose-leaf teas, patrons can enjoy a glass of wine.

What’s Unique: The teahouse uses profits to fund local scholarships, town
beautification projects, and other charitable endeavors. 

Insider Tip: Afternoon tea is served only on Friday and Saturday afternoons, and only by reservation.

4 Monument St., Wenham, 978-468-1398,
