My sister, her two grandchildren, and I had tea at the Smith-Byrd House while I was visiting from Texas, the week before Christmas. It was the tearoom closest to my sister's house so it was our first choice but will continue to be our first choice because of the wonderful experience we had. I've visited tearooms in CA and in the Washington DC area and I truly had never seen such a large selection of teas to choose from! The house was beautifully decorated, peaceful, and relaxing. Our hosts, Beth & David, were warm and welcoming and made my first 'fancy' tea with my precious great-niece & great-nephew a delightful and unforgettable one!
