This was the first tea room I've ever been to and it was excellent. I am in love with their Russia caravan tea and their lemon blueberry scones. I plan on going again in the near future.

We had a group of 12 ladies. Blanche and her staff did a wonderful job of accomodationg us and making sure everyone was happy. The list of teas seemed endless but everything was delicious. It's wonderful that they have gluten free offerings as well so if you have that issue, don't shy away, they can take care of you. Thanksc Blanche and staff for an enjoyable Saturday afternoon.

We had High Tea here for the first time a few months ago and are planning another trip very soon. Absolutely everything about our visit was five-star. Blanche and her staff were wonderful, the selection and quality of the food was top notch, and the ambiance was delightful. I would recommend this gem to anyone! Thanks for a wonderful afternoon and hopefully many more to come!

I enjoyed a delightful High Tea at Serenity Tearoom on a trip to Frederick, MD last week. The tea choices were extensive and delicious as was the food! The tearoom was whimsically decorated and the atmosphere was calm. I highly recommend this experience!

Serenity is the number #1 of all Maryland and Virginia. I have been to many tea rooms searching for the best and THIS IS THE BEST! From the butternut squash soup that was super hot, enjoyed every spoonful of such great flavor. Not be missed! Savories and sweets all created on the premises. Excellent. You are missing a great experience if you not have come here. Should be on your bucket list. The largest selection of teas...the blood orange tea was amazing. The owner is charming and gracious. The supporting staff is knowledgeable and very amiable which made for wonderful service.

We have been through the Md, Va and Dc. area on our quest for the perfect tea room. Seen and tasted alot. This is the Crem de la crem. Everything is elegant. The largest selection of very good tea. The food from soup to savories to sweet meats absolutely elegant. This is the top of the trees in the tea time elegance. The Queen would be impressed. The service and staff above reproach which enhanced our experience. I would rate this AAA+++ not to missed.

I had never been to tea before so I had no idea what to expect so I went with a friend who has visited Serenity many times. All of the food was very tasty, the people where friendly, service was good, and the tea was amazing.

It seemed like they had a truly massive list of teas to try. I am very glad I went with someone who knew what they where doing.

My Mom, a friend of mine, and I attended the Christmas Tea on Saturday. It was delicious as usual! We have been patronizing the Serenity Tearoom for quite awhile. Blanch is a wonderful hostess and has become a member of our family as well as the rest of her family. The staff at the Tearoom makes you feel at home and takes very good care of your needs from the preparation of the food, the beautiful presentation and the excellent service. My daughter usually attends the Christmas Tea but due to the weather she couldn't this year and boy, was she disappointed! We can't say enough excellent things about Serenity Tearoom other than go visit it and see how much you will love it!

I went the Serenity Tearoom with my friends and we had a great time. Mrs. Henry was an excellent host and we felt like we were at home. The two teas that I had were excellent and the food was amazing.Thanks Mrs. Henry!

While the tea, food and atmosphere are all stellar what struck me most was the service. I went with my mom and two aunts. After three visits they knew my aunt by name and asked how her work was going. They even remembered my mom and I from one visit more than a year before. They greeted my other aunt and commented that they were always excited to have a new customer. We will be going back on a regular basis. Perfect for a girls' day out.

I have been coming to the Serenity Tea Room for the past 5 years. It has become a tradition of mine to treat myself to a Traditional High Tea after visiting the doctor for my annual physical exam. The selection of teas is exceptional and the food is of the highest quality. I recently moved out of the area but found myself driving 3 1/2 hours in order to continue the tradition this yesar. The atmosphere is so peaceful and calming and the service is wonderful. A great place to relax after being poked and probed by my doctor.

Soroptimists of Upper Montgomery County, MD reserve the tea room to honor three of our long time members and the tea room was exceptional. Perfect place to hold a small group event. Thanks for making our occasion so special.

This was my first visit to a tearoom and it was a wonderful experience. Blanche, the hostess/manager is delightful and makes everyone feel very special. The atmosphere is very charming and it seems like there are over 100 tea selections to include herbal and decaf. My favorite was the Hawaiin herbal as it tasted like liquid coconut. Our group spent 3 hours in this tranquil setting. Reservations are required.

I hadn't been to high tea since living in London. My experience at Serenity Tea Room was every bit as good as my experiences in London. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. The tea selection was amazing and the atmosphere was relaxing and just what a person would want and expect for a high tea experience. I can't wait to bring my granddaughter and daughter-in-law in the near future.

5 stars all around for this cozy, polished tearoom. Angel was very knowledgeable regarding the tea selection and helped us make great choices. We received perfectly brewed teas in small plain pots which we then enjoyed drinking from a fantastic variety of cups that the owner has collected over many years ~ beautiful presentation. My cold strawberry soup was outstanding. The finger foods allowed us to taste a variety of textures and flavors that were chosen carefully so that each morsel complements another ~ well balanced. Almost all of the food is prepared fresh, on premises. I highly recommend Serenity.

- Laura 04/23/13

Variety:     Artistry:     Service:     Food:

We loved the selection of teas and the quality of food and drink. The pastries were particularly nice. Service left something to desire. It took a long time to get tea to our table. I think it's the individual pots. I would rather share a large pot (or two) at the table than have to wait so long for all the individual pots. I was also a little put-off by the litany of reasons for potential fees that my credit card risked if any of my friends decided not to show or changed their mind about what they wanted for tea. (You have to make your menu selection in advance.) Although it's probably personal preference, I didn't like the idea of 'seating' times. Having to arrive at a certain hour, receiving slow service and then being rushed out (albeit nicely...with to go cups) took away from the experience. Overall, this was a very nice tea house with superior food/tea quality. With a few tweaks in the service concept it would be a nearly perfect experience.
