      I've been to Sweet Simplici-tea a number of times over a period of a few years. The first time was four years ago, when, after twelve years together, my Girl Scout Troop had their last gathering, prior to going off to college. The tea shop was so accommodating and it was the perfect backdrop to review our twelve years together. I've gone there with my daughter several times, with other friends, since the shop relocated. They don't miss a beat-- it's lovely. I'm so glad to have Sweet Simplici-tea in this area.

      I love going to tea. I have been here more than once and loved it. Even tried on the hats available to wear during tea. What a lovely place to escape from daily life with one or more friends.

      I talked on the phone with Robin, one of the bakers, and not only is she the most friendly person in the food business, but she is an AMAZING baker! Such amazing scones, cupcakes, and cookies! Her sister also makes great tea! Had a pumpkin tea on this fall day that couldn't have been more perfect! Very nice, quaint family owned business worth visiting. :)

      This is a special place. Once you start coming here you will be disappointed everywhere else. The staff truly welcomes you like you are guests in their home. The tea blends and food are wonderful. The passion that Robin and Lisa have for this business shines through in every aspect.

      From the minute you walk though the door of Sweet Simplici-Tea, you are in a magical place. The warmth of the decor, the elegance of the surroundings, the friendly greeting, all say 'You are special to us'. 'Thank you for spending time with us.' The food is delicious and the tea blends are wonderful. I have had tea in many places, including London; and none is as good as Sweet Simplici-Tea! I bring friends from out of town here. It is always the highlight of their trip. I also bring friends who need a special time of quite and relaxation to renew their spirit. All say they leave happy and rested. Robyn and Lisa are absolutely the best. What a gift they share with us -- fun, food and hospitality!

      I am not what you would call someone who loves tea, but my experience with Sweet Simplici-Tea has given me a newfound appreciation for it. The entire experience was just wonderful, the food was delicious and served on elegant 3-tiered trays. I would definately go back.

      I cannot say enough about Sweet Simplici-Tea! I have never enjoyed such delicious tea - unique flavors that include chocolate, cherry, champagne and strawberries (and much more). When sampling several teas, Robyn and Lisa serve them with care, ensuring a balance of caffeinated and non-caffeinated. Based on your likes or dislikes, they will present you with tea that perfectly suits your preference. The ambience is wonderful and Robyn and Lisa are incredibly gracious and helpful. I would go so far as to say that, from a customer service standpoint, theirs is second to none. It doesn't hurt that the food is scrumptious and pairs perfectly with the vast variety of teas. I look forward to continued patronage of Sweet Simplici-Tea!!

      Thank you Robyn & Lisa! You guys are the BEST! This is such a cute cute place, very roomy & decorative.I attend a Bible Study group there once a month, and thanks to you and your staff, we enjoy a great time. Ya'll are so gracious, and I thank God for you! Everything from the scones is excellent! The plates with a variety of fresh fruits, the array of hot teas, and hot, fresh out of the oven scones just can't be beat! The ambience of the place is conducive to a relaxing afternoon of taking tea! :) God bless you richly in your endeavors!

      I happened to be in the area and stopped in to have tea at Simplici-Tea. What a gem of a Tea Romm this one is. From soup, salad, sandwiches to desserts, the food was delicious and homemade ~ the best... Each month's tea menu is different. Please, don't pass by this tea room without experiencing, you will so happy that you did. Enjoy!

      For 12 years, a group of us have gone to have tea at the holidays. Each year we go someplace different so this was our first experience at Simplici-Tea. We all loved this tea room! The service was fantastic and the food was delicious. The atmosphere is definitely Victorian and beautiful. We especially enjoyed trying on the hats :)

      Sweet Simplici-Tea recently hosted my daughter's 8th birthday party. I cannot say enough about how amazing the whole experience was for myself, my mom, and the girls. My daughter chose an offbeat theme (Mad Hatter) and the entire staff was so enthusiastic & welcoming. Several of the girls, my daughter included, told me that this was the best birthday party that they had attended. Lisa, Emily, & Tabitha catered to all of us with patience and cheer- even amidst having a full house of other patrons. ...And the chocolate tea was incredible! :) We will definitley be returning- a truly enjoyable new tradition for us ladies.

      Sweet Simplici-Tea is a really special place. The owners treat everyone like royalty or is it royal tea :) The scones and food is awesome too. I love going there with freinds and alone. It is eye applealing and promotes fun chatter as well as supports a gently quiet place when I want to meditate and relax with my tea.

      I brought a friend to Lunch at Sweet-Simplici-Tea for our first Tea Room expeience! The entire atmosphere was very warm and welcoming and there are so many beautiful things to look at. We ordered the Anna's Choice afternoon tea and everthing was delicious! The portions were perfect and we even took what we couldn't eat home. Lisa, Robin, Emily, and Chris were very pleasant and we had a wonderful experience. The scones are to die for and I loved the Savanah Grey Tea. Thanks!!

      My mother invited the Girls in my family to Sweet simplici-Tea for Girls day! We had an absolutely wonderful time. The younger generation had their own table with age appropriate sandwhices and goodies. The adult ladies enjoyed a variety of Teas. All excellent. However the Bucaneer was the family favorie. We enjoyed a delightful and delicious lunch. The scones are absolutely amazing. I love to visit my moms in the morning. (she freezes the scones and heats them for breakfast.) From Grandmother to Granddaughters we had a fabulous time! Im hoping we can make it an anuual family tradition. Thank you Robin and Lisa! I look forward to seeing you soon!

      Tearoom response:

      Dear Margie, Lisa and I thank you so much for taking time to write such sweet comments about your Afternoon Tea experience. We are so glad you chose to celebrate Girls Day with us. We are truly honored! Please do come back soon. Check the website for some fun upcoming events and thank you so much again for the wonderful sweet remarks. See you soon. Robyn and Lisa

      I surprised my daughters with afternoon tea last week at this lovely little tea room and we were delighted. My older daughter was excited from the moment we arrived - the Victorian decor and accessories made her wish she'd been born in a different era. While the ladies were surprised by our arrival (I tried belatedly to make a reservation), they graciously accomodated us. The suggestions and service were wonderful, not to mention the delicious treats (the blueberry scone was by far the best I've had). By the end of our experience, both daughters were asking when we could return. We are all looking forward to our next visit. Thank you!!!

      Tearoom response:

      Dear Holly and daughters, Thank you so much for visiting us at our new location. We are delighted that your visit was positive in all ways. Thank you for the generous compliments to the staff and our food. Please come back and visit us soon. Check out our website, all the newest menu items are listed and our special events are posted. We are currently planning our holiday events. You won't want to miss them. Thanks again for taking time to make an entry about us on teamap. Robyn and Lisa

      My friend Denise and I just visited Sweet Simplicit-Tea. It was an awesome experience. From the moment we walked in, we were made to feel as though we were valued friends and the only people there (all the tables were full) and Robin,Lisa, and the rest of the staff had been waiting for us to visit. The food was delicious, everything complemented the rest of the course but no one taste overpowered another. In my opinion, that is what makes a GREAT tea room (and I have been to many). Everyone was friendly, took time to describe each course, and answer our questions. The selection of available teas was large and included all varieties you could want. At no time while we were there did we feel rushed to finish a course. The food was meant to be savored. I cannot pick a favorite. The cream of potato w/bacon was delicious and left me wanting more, I loved the cinnamon scone, the poppy seed dressing made the salad outstanding, the sandwiches were perfect - sliced egg on pumpernickle w/ tarragon, ham w/slice radish on wheat and shrimp salad on a potato roll and each taste better than the previous one, desserts were fresh fruit, chocolate expresso cake (yum) and a parfait with pistashio cream (wow). The meal ended with a lemon sorbet that was perfect. The meal was called a Royal Tea and it definitely was. This is a place that is not to be missed - it is well worth traveling to to enjoy a Sweet Simplici-Tea enjoyable experience. Look for them in their new location at 7540 Main Street (just up the street from where they are now.)

      Tearoom response:

      Dear Denise, thank you so much for the wonderful review. Lisa and I are delighted you were able to give us a try on a Saturday afternoon. Tea definitely is an experience and it takes time to enjoy it completely to its fullness. We never like to rush everyone and we truly loved the conversation with you and Bev. Please visit us soon in our new location. It is going to be awesome. Thanks again! Robyn and Lisa

      My friend, Bev and I just visited Sweet Simplici-Tea. We had the most wonderful experience. We have visited many tea rooms and have our personal favorites. Sweet Simplici-Tea just went to the top of the favorites. From the starter Cream of Potato with bacon soup to the finish with the cool and refreshing lemon sorbet it was sensationally delicious. The ower, Robin, and her servers were attentive to every tea room accomadaton for their patrons. They took time to explain every course and were receptive to hearing stories from their tea time visitors. Robin shared her source for culinary lavendar and currants. My friend, Bev, had a birthday and they surprised us with a cute birthday cupcake at the end of our tea. We both felt so special.We felt like we were visiting family, instead of a business. This attention to details in the 'tea service' demonstrates how they are able to make the move to a new and larger location just up the street into a historical building. I am sharing this so that in Mid-April you too may share this same delightful tea adventure. New address is 7540 Main Street.

      Tearoom response:

      Ladies, You have been so gracious with you comments. Thank you so much for choosing to visit with us for Tea. We so enjoyed learning a little bit about you and do hope we are able to treasure more visits with you. Stop by our new location soon. Robyn and Lisa

      I LOVE this tea room. The scones are To-Die-For! Just when I think I have my all-time favorite, Robyn creates another, even more delicious scone.Lisa & Robyn are the sweetest gals you'd ever want to meet, sweeter maybe than the scones they create. I never thought I'd 'hang out' at a tea room, but the atmosphere is so friendly it draws you back time after time. If you remember the TV show, Cheers, about the bar where 'everybody knows your name'; I think of this tea room as Cheers for women. Once you come here you'll feel so comfortable that you'll want to return soon. It draws you in and makes you feel like you're old friends. It's a great place!

      Tearoom response:

      Mary Decker! One thing for sure is that you are sweeter than the scone we create and bake. Without a doubt you have been a tremendous blessing to us. Your artistic talent leaves us speechless. You have contributed much to the lovely atmosphere. We love to see you meander through our door and we are delighted that it's the next best place to home! Come often and stay long! We love you. Robyn and Lisa

      The Christmas Tea was absolutely wonderful! I have been to Sweet Simplici-tea quite a few times and have never been disappointed. The food is always wonderful, the atmosphere is adorable and Lisa couldn't be nicer. I'm sure Robin is just as nice but she's always in the kitchen preparing all of the fabulous goodies. I have been to many tea rooms but this is the only one I always bring my family and friends to. Robin & Lisa, have a wonderful holiday and I'll be back next year! Can't wait!

      Tearoom response:

      Dear JoAnne, As always it is a joy to see you and be able to serve you. We are so glad you enjoyed the holiday Tea. It is so much fun to put it all together. i just love this time of the year even with all it's craziness and hectic schedules. Hope you enjoy your time in Florida. We are looking forward to Spring!!<BR> Robyn and Lisa

      Wow! What a wonderful afternoon. Richard called the Tea Room a 'Shrangri-la'. An escape from the maddening world. The food was outstanding. The pumpkin bisque was delicious and really a nice additional to all of the other mouth watering specialties. We were so thrilled to be there when Mr. and Mrs. Lenny Moore there. They were so warm and so interesting to talk to. We will treasure the book written and signed by Mr. Moore forever. Lisa, Robyn and Mary Beth you go out of you way to make every thing so very special and we appreciate that so very much. Can't wait to come back

      Tearoom response:

      Dear Joan and Richard, We are so delighted that both of you were able to join us for this special afternoon. It was equally special for us to have Mr.and Mrs. Moore with us. They are two lovely people. They may have blessed the lives of many people on Saturday but I must say they were blessed also, especially by the life story you shared with them Joan. Thank you for that. We are so appreciative of the wonderful comments and your continued support and encouragement. This means so much to us. We love you guys. Richard, we hope to see more of you. Thanks again.<BR> Robyn, Lisa and Marybeth

      My husband and I walked into Simplici-Tea as we just moved into the neighborhood and wanted to see the local shops and get to know our neighbors. We didn't know what to expect when we first walked in and were a bit surprised by what we saw: a seriously Victorian tearoom! However, Lisa and Mary Beth were incredibly welcoming and after two minutes we felt right at home. We had amazing plum berry iced tea (my husband drank an entire carafe by himself and asked for the loose tea to take home, which Lisa had already packed up for us) and the turtle scones were to die for. Not only that, Lisa took the time to put a pad of butterscotch on the top, warmed them in the oven, and served them with homemade whipped cream and fruit. Both ladies were very friendly and took the time to chat and answer our newbie questions. The thought that went into everything did not go unnoticed! Thank you so much for your hospitality to the new coffee drinking neighbors up the street...you may turn us into tea drinkers before long!

      Tearoom response:

      Dear Alicia, Welcome to our new neighbors! We do howeve hope we convert you to Tea Drinkers, there are so many more varieties to choose from. Check out our website. We have many wonderful holiday events happening. Our scone flavors change monthly and we always have a variety on hand for purchase. Lisa and Maybeth are awesom, I agree. Since you are local we do expect to see more of you! Thanks for the generous response. Robyn and Lisa

      First off I have to say ... these women really know what they're doing. There is nothing 'stuffy' about the two women who own and run this place. They are very warm and down to earth. They are two of the most welcoming and hospitable people you will ever meet. When you arrive, you really feel they are glad you came. But not only do they have the rare gift of hospitality, but they also know what they're doing in the kitchen. Everything we were served from their creative menu was (seriously) the best I've ever had. We kept thinking that eventually they would present us with something that was just mediocre ... but no. Every course was fabulous. Best scones EVER (and I've had scones here and abroad in too many tea rooms to count) but nothing compares to these. We were served quiche as part of the savories that was just outstanding. And coconut cake was served with the desserts at the end which was simply beyond compare. If you want to treat yourself and your friends to a special afternoon, Sweet Simplici-Tea is THE place to go!

      Tearoom response:

      Dear Kimberleigh, Thank you so much for the very gracious review. Your kind words just really made my day. There are those days when you are so busy and you feel less than completely satisfied with your performance and then kind and encouraging words make you realize that all is well and the purpose of providing warmth, reception, good food and lovely presentation still stands. We started this business with a dream and a purpose and to watch it unfold is amazing. We are thankful each day. Please visit us again soon and thanks once again for taking the time to write such a beautiful review. Robyn and Lisa

      We absolutely LOVE this tea room. Having traveled extensively in the US and the world, we have had teas in numerous places and this is one of the best. Not only is the tea room cute and eclectically decorated, but the menu is fabulous. Everything is fresh and originally prepared.The scones and savories are to die for. We also love the amazing hospitality of the sisters Lisa and Robyn. They have honed the fine art of tea and making each patron feel like they are the only one. Our wish is their command. Do we really have to leave? Yes, all good things do come to an end, but we will come back soon..again and again.

      Tearoom response:

The sisters, Lisa and Robyn, who own the tearoom will make you feel very special.

      

      My mother and sister are big fans of this tearoom; when my (college student) son and I were in town, they insisted we try it out. Are we big tea drinkers? We are not. (I'm a coffee man; he's a fan of southern sweet tea.) Do we feel out of place surrounded by teapots and lace? Indeed. But there is no resisting the honest charm and warmth of Lisa and Mary Beth; and the food...we have eaten scones pretty nearly all over the world (and made a few ourselves), and we consider ourselves harsh critics of mediocre grub of any kind...but every single thing (and we worked our way through the menu) was laughably, delightfully wonderful. We didn't meet Robyn, but it's clear she made a deal with the baking devil. We look forward to getting back the next time we're in town--but we also count ourselves lucky not to live too close, as it would be almost impossible to resist stopping by every day.

      Tearoom response:

      Dear Pete, I am so sorry that I missed you on your visit to Maryland. I sure do hope I don't miss the next visit. I want to tell you that you have a wonderful and gracious mother and sister. They are so kind and so generous. We love their friendship and would surely miss their frequent visit if they should ever move away. I very much enjoyed your honest review. It made me laugh out loud. I will tell you imade a pact, but not with the baking devil, but with the Baking God. He is the one who oversees my activities and a bit of love is put into everything, that is why it is consistently wonderful (if I must say so). Thank you again so much. I do hope we get to meet down the road! Robyn

      I just love coming to Sweet-Simplici-Tea to relax and unwind from the daily stresses of life. Robyn and Lisa have done a wonderful job of pampering their guests. The food is absolutely wonderful and the tea is exquisite. The atmosphere takes you back in time when life had a slower pace. The service is impeccable. I also had my daugher's 6th birthday party here and it was the best party she ever had. Robyn and Lisa bent over backwards to make her day as special as it could be. I am a repeat customer and will continue to keep coming back to my little piece of heaven on earth. Thanks Robyn and Lisa for your hospitality!

      When you enter Sweet Simplici-Tea, you are greeted warmly by the owners, Lisa and Robyn and given a hug when you leave. There aren't very many dining establishments that are so friendly and receptive! Robyn makes the widest variety of tasty scones we've ever heard of! Among our many favorites are butterscotch, chocolate chip and apricot-peach-caramel. Many, if not all, of the tea flavors are specially blended for and/or by Sweet Simplici-Tea themselves. The loose tea is brewed freshed when you order, except for iced tea, which is prepared in advance. The flavor selections of both tea and scones change monthly, to reflect the availability of fresh fruit flavors of the season. Among our favorite tea flavors are Gloria's Garden and Mother's Bouquet. We normally drink decaf and green teas, however when we relax at Sweet Simplici-Tea, whether it's hot or iced tea, we always enjoy it immensely. Mostly they serve tea and scones, and if one is interested, a full afternoon tea is available by advance reservation. Special occasions, such as Mother's Day, have their own menu. The tearoom has a Victorian theme atmosphere to it. There is also some tea-related merchandise avail. for purchase, such as loose tea, teapots and pretty aprons. Sweet Simplici-Tea's restroom is very attractively decorated as well! They have just celebrated two years of business and have developed quite a following of patrons, including visitors from as far as California. We enjoy the food and gracious hospitality and dine there often.

      Tearoom response:

      Dear Pat,<BR> <BR> Wow! thanks for taking the time to not forget one detail. We do serve lots of scones because they are the BEST around! Full tea service is available Tues. thru Sat. 11 am to 4 pm. Everything is fresh and we try to make it wonderful, relaxing and enjoyable. We are gracious for your frequent visits, your friendship, and the blessing you have been. We love you. Robyn and Lisa

      Everyone should have a tea room experience. Robyn and Lisa, fun-filled hostesses, have so much to offer at Sweet Simplici-Tea.Inside,there are nooks and crannies neatly filled with novelties, notions and gifts which add to the quaint decor. There are so many delightful teas from which to choose, some specially concocted and brewed, including decafs. The food is outstanding!Delicacies from fresh greens and fruit, open faced sandwiches to showy little pastries which melt in your mouth...AND THE SCONES...are delicious.(My husband loves them, too.)

Once when we were there, there was a table with much younger children who just had a ball dressing up with hats, gloves, etc. From the very young to very 'mature' and everyone in between it is a fantastic experience!

      My Valentines Day excursion to this excellent tea room was my first experience with a Victorian Tea Room. The food was excellent and the company and overall ambiance of the room made for a memorable experience (in a good way). I would encourage gentlemen of all walks of life to indulge the fairer sex with this tasty treat whenever they need some extra points credited to their column. A hearty tea followed by a leisurely stroll down Main Street does wonders.

      This tearoom is an unexpected treasure, nestled away in historic Sykesville. Having been to the tearoom twice, I found it to be a serene & peaceful atmosphere with the most attentive service ever. Their teas are carefully blended under direction of the owners & that same attention brings in new, inviting tea selections all the time. Their tearoom fare is outstanding. Personally prepared using family recipes, everything I have sampled is delicious. I recently had them cater a baby shower. Their presence made the day. They brought everything from tea cups to trash bags. The food was spectacular, the presentation amazing, the hot teas / iced teas were delicious & their attention to every detail was perfection. Lisa, Robyn & Marybeth were professional in every way, while still managing to interact so sweetly with our family & friends. I have received so many compliments from my guests…and I have to tell them that it was all Sweet Simplici-Tea. They are a breath of fresh air.

      Tearoom response:

      Dea Mrs. FitzGerald, We were honored to be a part of this wonderful, celebratory occasion with you, your extended family and Laura and Tim. Thank you for the kind, generous words.

      I found Sweet Simplici-Tea online after moving to the area and looking for things to do. It was the best discovery I've ever made! The tea selection is excellent (and if you're overwhelmed by all your choices, the staff are happy to work with you to try to recommend something you'll like), the menu changes monthly and reflects seasonal ingredients (and accommodations can be made for vegetarians if necessary), the prices are more than reasonable, and the service and atmosphere are incredible. I've never felt like a customer at Sweet Simplici-Tea, as the staff go out of their way to treat you with the kind of love and attention you'd give a favorite family member coming to visit for lunch. The owners really know their stuff, too, and will tell you in detail what's in your food and tea and where their ingredients came from, as they buy and bake everything themselves, something I really appreciate considering the weird things mass-produced food sometimes has in it. The scones are absolutely amazing, of course, and the ability to get them (and baggies of tea) To Go on days that I can't stay for tea is even better. Overall, Sweet Simplici-Tea is a very friendly, accommodating place that uses quality ingredients and excellent service, whether you want to spend half the day chatting with your friends chipping away at a pot of tea or can only spare the time for a light lunch and a few glasses of iced tea. And every month offers a new and wonderful menu to explore!

      Tearoom response:

      Dear Natalia, Thank you for such a glowing critique. We very much appreciate your regular business. It is a blessing to us. Lisa and I are delighted you found us when you move to Sykesville.

      I hosted my daughter's baby shower here. Robyn and Lisa exceeded my expectations with excellent customer service. The food and tea selections were good. Everyone raved over the adorable baby rattle cupcakes that were made escpecially for this occasion. The superior service given by entire staff made my daughter's baby shower a memorable event.

      Thank you for the generous comments. We are grateful. We only hope it gets better and better. Robyn and Lisa

      We visited on 7/18/09 and had a great time. Lisa and Mary Beth served and Robin was in the kitchen but came out. In general, this establishment rates an A+ from us; my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and recommend this HIGHLY. The gift shop was a hit!

      Tearoom response:

      Thank you Tom. We are so glad your visit with us was great. I am so excited when I see men come in for tea with their wives. My husband and I enjoy visiting tea rooms also. Thanks again. Come back and see us. Robyn and Lisa

      My friend and I visited for the second time on 18 July; we found the atmosphere to be very quaint, even the bathroom was dressed up. The service was exceptional, the hostess was very attentive and friendly. We began with a blueberry scone with lemon drizzle; the scone was served warm and was good, but perhaps a little too lemony for me and my friend. Next was a petite salad that was excellent; my personal favorite. Next, sandwiches, fruit and sweets. Sandwiches included a quiche, a turkey rollup, egg salad on a corn muffin and tuna with pear and mint on flat bread. The sandwiches were good, but they may have tried too hard in the innovation department. I thought the egg salad, although good, was overpowered by the corn muffin, and the tuna overpowered by the mint. A coconut cake was moist and very delicious, and an oatmeal and blueberry cookie was nice as well. My friend and I were split on a small fruit cup with a drizzle. There was a wonderful selection of teas that the hostess was eager to describe. A you were greeted with a small sample of their tea of the day; something I've not seen done elsewhere but was a nice touch. I asked for a second pot of tea, as it was delicious, and it was provided at no additional cost. The bill came in a small antique purse, with a piece of chocolate each (very cute) and a small dish of sherbet. They are happy to make accommodations for food allergies; and EVERYTHING is home made. Definitely worth a trip back.

      I have participated in tea at this particular tea room monthly since its opening June 2008. Each month the menu changes and the new offerings are a wonderful blend of traditional and innovatively modern. Recently a salad with homemade dressing was added for those who are more health conscious, as well as a 'tea to go' - hot or cold lunch (quiche or salad, with fruit and hot or cold tea) for those on the run or unable to leave the office. The tearoom offers a wide selection of loose, fresh brewed teas. When I asked for a variety not on their menu, the owners ordered some for the shop - service above and beyond expectation. Their other teas, including the Buccaneer (a chocolate-coconut) and a special blend named for the owners mother (an unusual blend of Earl Gray and lavender!) are worth trying. The scones are some of the best out of any tearoom I've visited - one both sides of the Atlantic - especially the chocolate/cherry and lemon/basil/asiago cheese. The owners are charming - the right mix between formal and fun loving/friendly and the decor charming. Be sure to check out the bathroom - a wonder of Victorian shoes and a to-die-for wreath over the sink. All in all, a wonderful, relaxing place to partake in the finer side of afternoon tea.

      I highly recommend this tearoom to anyone that wants a relaxing, fun, enjoyable time. My daughter and I visit regularly. We are greeted by one of the owners, Lisa, and treated special from the moment we walk in the door. The tea room has a beautiful victorian atmosphere. Robyn, the other owner,creates the most delicious food! My mom swears the scones are better than any she's had in England! The tea sandwiches and desserts are unsurpassed! They have a large selection of teas. We especially love the Buccaneer- a blend of rooibos, chocolate and coconut (I believe!) They have made birthday celebrations and just regular visits so memorable. We have taken friends and family members and everyone just raves about the tearoom. They even offer wonderful gift items at a reasonable cost. This is our favorite tearoom of any we have visited.

      Elaine, you and your family were some of our first customers. You guys are like family! We love you. Robyn and Lisa

      Sweet Simplici-tea is a wonderful tea house located in Sykesville. They offer 16 teas daily on the menu as well as a tea of the month. The finger foods and fruit trays are awesome. The sconces are baked fresh daily and are out of this world. Robyn and Lisa go out of their way to please every customer. I have had Sweet Simplici-Tea cater several meetings at our offices and would highly recommend this teahouse.
