I've said it many times and will say it many, many more - This is the BEST tearoom I've EVER been too. I've had tea all over the world including the British Isles and China, but nothing tops Blanche and her Serenity Tearoom. My mom, grandmother and I go at least once a month. We are always warmly welcomed, never rushed, have the best time (food, tea and social-wise), and leave feeling happy and relaxed. The tea selection keeps me picking at least one new tea each time I go..and if I can't make up my mind, Blanche and her girls have never failed at surprising me with an excellent cuppa. The food is not only tasty, but artfully done. If you get the chance to experience one of the special event teas, go for it! Not only do you get a wonderfully delicious meal, but you get a tea cup and saucer to remember the experience. If you're going to be near Frederick, don't pass this gem of a tea sanctuary up!
