      The Tea Cupboard in Cumberland is a classic and lovely tea room/shop. The tea is always prepared just right, my favorite cup here is the monk's blend, the scones are baked in house and are the perfect scone, the service is friendly and personable- never stuffy. These guys have awesome special events such as sip and paints and tea with the fairies for the little ones. I have seen many a bridal party/baby shower crew looking to have quite the good time in this space. I generally pop into the Tea Cupboard to pick up a quick lunch, Linda is always the sweetest and allows for call ahead for those stuck at the office, super quick and efficient pick up, my favorite lunch is a quiche, a scone, and a hot tea.... all coming in at under $8, such a delicious deal!

      The Tea Cupboard is a a must stop while in or around Cumberland, MD. Once you entire the lovely shop you will be greeted by the warm, friendly and well versed staff and the wonderful aroma of all of the different varieties of teas. From teas, to pots, cups and all of your must have accessories The Tea Cupboard shop is your one stop shop. As for the tea room do yourself a favor stop in for either a cream tea (tea and scones w/lemon curd/devonshire cream) to the Queen City tea which includes a tasty quiche, soup, three tier tray of sweet and savories. When I want to indulge the Tea Cupboard is my go to place. Another reason why the Tea Cupboard is one of my favorite places they offer events for people of all ages. From Paint and Sips, Book clubs, to Tea w/Santa or the Fairies. Be sure to stop by you will not be disappointed!!!

      The Tea Cupboard is an absolute must stop location if you are anywhere near Cumberland, MD! The staff is so friendly and knowledgeable, they will be happy to point you in the right direction of what tea to try out of their vast selection. The store itself is decorated beautifully and the front windows are always stunning! Then there's the Tea Room in the back of the store...the most cozy, inviting space ever. Try a Queen City Tea-my favorite because I don't have to pick just one thing-a sampling of all of their delicious homemade goodies, soup, quiche, scones with devonshire cream and lemon curd, finger sandwiches, and desserts (the mini chocolate chip cookies with chocolate filling are to die for), paired with your very own pot of tea. Mixing the devonshire cream and lemon curd on your scone is a must! I could just go on and on about how wonderful the tea selection, atmosphere, and food are at The Tea Cupboard, check it out, there's no way you will be disappointed!!

      SUPER friendly staff!!! Great variety of loose teas (Adagio) - Oolong; Green; Black; Rooibos. Lots of yummy flavors! FANTASTIC food! (from the soup to the quiche to the decadent desserts!) LOVE the ambiance of The Tea Cupboard!!! They were very accommodating -- it was my sister's birthday and not only did they sing to her, but allowed us to use the parasols & hats to add a touch of class to out 'Tea Party Photo'. You DEFINITELY MUST check out this establishment. I highly recommend it and give it a 5 star rating!

      Love the food, the atmosphere and the friendly service at The Tea Cupboard. I took a friend for lunch before she was to have surgery and she really enjoyed the entire experience -- so relaxing!!! Give it a try! I am sure your experience will be wonderful too!

      I just had the Sun-dried Tomato/Cheddar quiche and it was delicious! I thought the Onion/Pepper/Swiss was my favorite (with Mushroom/Cheddar close behind) but this one was so good. I haven't tried anything here yet that wasn't scrumptious!

      We have attended two tea parties now for the under 10 set and had a wonderful time at both! My girls felt like very special little ladies while there and have begged to have their own birthday tea parties at the Tea Cupboard! We can't wait to attend the Fancy Nancy Tea Party as well!

      We discovered this place in downtown Cumberland during a weekend getaway in August, 2010. It's a lovely two room tea parlor with a huge assortmant of teas for home brewing. Tea service is prompt, warm, and friendly. Pastries are delicious and homemade and the tea is refreshing. Reservation recommended for teas service.
