A Special Treat!

My daughter had an art exhibit at a gallery, and we were looking for a way to make her special day even more memorable. Since we'd loved having high tea in London (at the Orangery behind Kensington Palace--best deal around!) Tea On the Tiber was perfect! We loved the decor, the choices of tea and... read more

There is nothing that I disliked. Tea on the Tiber has several rooms, all decorated in Victorian style. There is also dining outside, weather permitting. They have over 30 selections of teas. Each guest is given their own pot of tea. Everyone is served the same delicious food consisting of tea sandwiches, scones, fruit, cheeses and desserts. Fabulous. You must... More

Absolutely phenomenal! My husband and daughter surprised me with tea this afternoon as a Mothers Day treat and I was blown away by everything. My daughter has some pretty difficult food allergies, but he had called ahead and they prepared her a special plate of goodies so she felt included! We've never had a place go out of their way...

Most view having tea as a woman thing. I beg to differ. And having tea when it's done right is the answer. Tea on the Tiber is one of the best tea presentation I have had. Pleasant servers, delicious treats, and tea a plenty.

This tea room is a lovely and cozy place to have afternoon tea. The rooms are small and quaint, the food was scrumptious and the service was wonderful. Our server was a wealth of information with a fun sense of humor. The tea selection is extensive with both regular and decaf choices. We had the full high tea with sweets... More

Four of us (my two daughters, a friend and me) went for afternoon tea. We love tea houses and have tried a lot of them so have lots for comparison. Elliott city is a cute little town with lots of interesting shops, adorable houses and architecture and is very walkable and easy to get around. Tea on the Tiber doesn't... More

Very authentic tea, great ambience, wonderful service. Not too kid friendly, by design, but they and our 2 year old survived.

I recently enjoyed a lovely full afternoon tea at Tea on the Tiber with three of my friends. I had been here before 3 years ago for my baby shower and it's still as wonderful. The reservation process was smooth and pleasant. We were seated on time, and the waitress kept things moving. The tea was wonderful (I had pomegranate... More

Located in the heart of historical Ellicott City, MD, Tea on the Tiber is a quaint Victorian style Tea Shop. They serve a variety of teas as well as finger sandwiches, scones, fruit and desserts. The food is to die for. Reservations are a must.
