Adaland Mansion will offer Christmas High Tea on Saturday at 2 p.m.
Adaland's high teas offer guests four courses of traditional English tea foods. The tea begins with fresh scones, followed by fresh fruits and tarts, savories including hot and cold hors d'oeuvres, a variety of desserts including English triffle, and Adaland's signature chocolates. A selection of hot teas accompanies the foods, and a tea hostess provides commentary on the history of tea and the mansion.
Following their afternoon tea, guests are invited to stroll throughout the restored 1870 Victorian home to see each room's extensive holiday finery. The house, located four miles from downtown Philippi, has three floors of Christmas decorations to delight children of all ages.
