I am a total tea snob and have gone to several tea rooms in the area...specifically in D.C. Each time I went feeling frustrated and disatified with the experience. Either the food was bland or there were not enough teas to choose from or the atmostsphere was lacking. None of this was true for Tea on the Tiber. I first came to the tea room for a friend's birthday party and the food and tea were delicious. They served warm scones and their savories and sweets changed monthly. I really enjoyed the cordon blue sandwich and a delicious tomatoe sandwich. They provided two pages of loose leaf teas to choose from and allowed us to change teas after we finished our first pot. The atmostsphere was tastefully done and we had our own room to enjoy the tea and conversation. I then promised myself to bring my friends and family here and I have!. My sister came with me intially and she was so excited about it, she made me promise to bring my mother there too which occured the very next weekend. The staff was curtious and friendly and the hostess made you feel right at ease. It was elegant with out the formality. It is a must try!
