This tea room is in beautiful old B and B. There are several different rooms and an enclosed patio/porch to choose from. The food is excellent and you will not go away hungry. You get 5 courses. There are multiple pages of teas to pick from; so you should be able to find one that will suite you. We had a lovely afternoon - recommend it to everyone

The 'Partners in Thyme'Herb Club of Southern York County and Northern Baltimore County celebrated 25 years as an herb club at the Higinbotham's B&B and Tearoom in New Oxford, Pa. with a 5 course tea that would delight any Epicurean and herbalist. The dining area was beautifully decorated with pots and planters filled with live herbs. It was a three hour culinary experience with pots of hot herbal teas. The club members enjoyed the afternoon reminiscing the past quarter century of meetings, gardening tours and herbal activities.
Thanks to the Higinbothams

This is by far my step mother and I's favorite tea room!! We have been to many tea rooms in the area and Mary Joe beats them all. She gives you a very wide variety of teas to chose from (I love when you get to chose) and allows you to try quite a few. The food is always delicious and plentiful, you wont leave hungry. Her home is BEAUTIFUL and always decorated very nicely and according to the season. New Oxford is a beautiful town so take the time to walk or drive around and look at all of the beautiful homes and businesses.

A Christmas Tea at Higinbothams was the perfect beginning to our groups Christmas season. The gorgeous tree in the parlor as well as the mantel decorations created an ambiancee of elegance as we entered. The warmth and friendliness of Mary Jo and Jim put you at ease as you settled in for a festive event. Special holiday touches to the menu from the egg nog scone to the cut out sugar cookie made you feel quite special. Tea at Higinbotham's Tea Room is a unforgettable gift and the perfect touch to make any event in life one which will be savored as it is steep in joy and friendship
Thank you,Mary Jo and Jim for a great day!

Each year my friend and I take each other to a tea house for our birthdays. I chose Higinbotham's for her this year. We were not disappointed. The house is beautiful. The service and food were excellent. We plan to return with a larger party. We have visited a fair number of tea houses and this one is right at the top of the list. We were not hurried at all. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

This time, at Higinbotham's, I was invited by some girlfriends to join them. And Mary Jo has not disappointed me yet! I thoroughly enjoyed the freshly brewed loose leaf teas that we chose. My favorite? Cinnamon Plum, YUM! The rest of our tea was heaven for the taste buds. Not sure that I will ever find a tearoom that I love more!!

I was also one of Elaine's guests for Tea at Higinbotham's B&B, and it was wonderful! The place settings were beautiful and the tea was hot and delicious, served in wonderul teapots that made the experience so special. I loved the scones, sandwiches, and deserts. I can't remember the last time I had such delicious soup! I loved the variety of the teas and food, the relaxing atmosphere, and the great service. I highly recommend Higinbotham's Tea Room!

I had the pleasure of joining Elaine at tea with friends, The orange scones were the best scones I have had in a very long time. I loved the cauliflower soup with cheddar cheese. The sandwiches and desserts were delightful.
Our tea was served piping hot in a lovely teapot. We opted to start with the herbal tea, and enjoyed it very much. The service was excellent, we were never rushed, but everything was in place when we needed it to be.
As I looked around the lovely room, I know I will be bringing my four sisters here -- soon.

Many times, people take for granted the wonderful places that are right in their backyards, but not this time! I have been to Higinbotham's a couple times and I have not been disappointed yet! I hadn't been for a while and wanted to invite a couple friends to go, but couldn't decide which, so I decided to invite them all! 24 friends later, we were headed for tea on a dreary winter's day. What a lift for our spirits! Starting with the orange scones, which were delicate and delicious, with jam and devonshire cream (YUM!) plus three kinds of fresh brewed tea, all delightful. The white cheddar cauliflower soup was just the right combination of flavors and texture. A light and refreshing Waldorf salad was welcomed surprise. We had a nice selection of sandwiches/savories which were all very tast... (more)
