Last week, the girls and I had a fancy time visiting the first Ginger Room in Alpharetta's Historic Skelton-Teasley House, a Greek Revival-style house dating back 165 years!

The Ginger Room is owned and run by the same entrepreneurs that founded the uber-successful specialty ginger drink company Ginger Yums. The Ginger Room focuses on all things ginger with a healthful variety of ginger teas, coffees, and signature Ginger Yums juices.


Fresh ginger has excellent health benefits like calming digestive issues, soothing an upset stomach, and reducing inflammation.

My daughters and I arrived in the evening to attend their media event wearing our cute spring dresses to go with the special occasion, ready to experience high tea for the first time.  We knew we would be in for a treat once we stepped inside The Ginger Room.

While inside, I admired all the sophisticated and unique antiques that gave a glimpse of British culture and design with a modern twist.

We sat down at our reserved table, and our hosts came out with a tower of freshly-made finger sandwiches, desserts while serving a variety of authentic British teas.  Definitely had me feeling divine surrounded by all the British fares.

Every single tea I tasted was soothing with either a light fruity taste and some with cinnamon or earthy flavor.  And the sandwiches were delicious too, having me crave for more.
