Xmas tea with freight do and family

This was our first visit to this tea room. We were seated In an upstairs room and each person received a pot of tea of their choice. We had one order of tai chi latte and it looked wonderful with the cream on top of the tea. The location of our table was private and allowed a personal quiet... read more

The plate came with a nice selection of fruit, cheeses & scones. We ate outside on the rear deck which is quite fun with different settings of chairs, tables and China all miss... More

My daughter celebrated her 17th birthday here with nine friends and they all loved it. Many of them came back for other occasions. The staff was very attentive and friendly.

Tea on the Tiber cannot be beat for a truly authentic afternoon tea experience. First of all, you cannot beat the location. In the heart of the Old Ellicott City historic district, the atmosphere is amazing. The menu is constantly changing, and I've never had anything I didn't love. The tea selection is amazing, and in Summer they offer a... More

We had the afternoon tea with fruit, cheese and biscuits. There are several rooms, and all are charming. The service was excellent and I am thankful I found this very darling place.

I love to go to 5 star tea houses, and this was one. It is located on historic main street in Ellicott City, MD. It is a historic building with two levels and a narrow staircase. You can request to have your tea on the first floor. When I made the reservations they asked me if I had any food... More

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 beautiful china, and the ceremony... More
