I have been to Tea on the Tiber twice since it came under new management at the end of August. I took my sister, with our two 5year old daughters as a special treat for my daughter's birthday, and we had a lovely time! In fact we had such a great time my daughter and I went back the next weekend with my MIL and SIL! The atmosphere is warm and inviting, as is the entire staff. We were seated right away, and checked on numerous times throughout our visit, to make sure we had everything we needed, and to answer any questions we had about the historic treasure of a tea house! We had a tour of the whole tea house, and each room is elegant and special in it's own way. There is a whole menu of teas to choose from, everybody gets their own tea pot. An elegant three-tiered tray is served to the whole table, overflowing with yummy savory and sweet options. My daughter's favorite is the tomatoe sandwiches - which says a lot, since she doesn't eat vegetables by choice! I highly recommend Tea on the Tiber to all of my friends! It is a wonderful atmosphere for any occasion - an intimate outing, or a group gathering. Sitting right on main street old Ellicott City, it is quaint, elegant, and fun! A little treasure that must be experienced for yourself!
