Latte Da Chai

It was a friend's birthday this past weekend and she decided that she wanted to do high tea to celebrate. This was my first time attending a tea. All of her guests (including me) all wore either a hat or fascinator for this event. It was so much fun! 4 of us had the Latte Da Chai. It was... read 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.

I love going for tea. I tried this place out with a group of friends, and will be coming back! They had a very good tea selection (I tried the Chocolate~ delicious!) and the food spread was fantastic. Our server let us sit and talk for a long time because there wasn't a party booked after us, so that was... More

Enjoyed a 'ladies' tea with my daughter, daughter-in-law and granddaughter. Nestled among the stores in an historical building, the setting is perfect for a Victorian tea room. The ladies on staff dress in period costume to add to the old world charm. We had a private room which made it more intimate. Such a pleasant, quiet and relaxed atmosphere compared... More
