I revisit this tea shop every month with my mother, sisters, nieces, and friends for tasty tea sandwiches and moist, yummy scones in a homey chic atmosphere. The best tea is Tibetan Tiger, dessert without the calories. An experience every girl should have, ages 12-102.

This is a small and quaint tea room that is run in an efficient and friendly manner. The crab bisque was excellent, not too thick like some, with the perfect seasonings and crabmeat. During our time at Tea by Two we sampled 5 of the different Christmas teas. Each one was full of flavor and distinctly different from the others.... More

I had the High tea and chose the soup of the day. It was a deliciously rich crab bisque. In a few moments, we had our tray of tea treats. All was very good and tasty which included Ambrosia on bread- very different but was refreshing. The scone of the day was almond cranberry (?). It was quite large, flavorful... More

My daughter and I enjoyed our Tea by Two time together. Although we did not have a reservation, we were seated promptly by a window with flower views. Our table had a lovely tea setting and fresh flowers. We ordered the Light Tea and were delighted with our tea sandwiches.. strawberry cream, cucumber, chicken salad, English pickle with cheese, and... More

Is it possible to be rude, obnoxious and down right disrespectful all at the same time? I didn't think so until now. I had heard good reviews from a family member and on our last day in the USA before returning to England we decided we'd give it a go. Not only do they not allow children under 5 (rules... More

We had a nice baby shower for our friend here. The sandwiches were yummy (and they have gluten free options), and the tea was delicious. Its cozy and sweet and perfect for girlie get togethers. If I had a daughter I would throw her tea parties here. In fact, I will probably throw myself a tea party here just because.

My sisters and I have been visiting Tea by Two for years. We are welcomed like family each time we go. The chocolate chip scones are our favorites, and you smell them as soon as you walk in the door. All of the teas are amazing, and you can switch out the pots if the one you chose isn't for... More

The best way to describe my experience is "exhale". The moment you walk in you feel welcomed and kind of a step back in time...a bit old school, but in a good way. The atmosphere is warm, the service felt like I had known the staff for years even though it was my first time there, and the tea was... More

Got to experience this tea room for a baby shower with family and friends. Great ambiance and decor. Teas were satisfying and tasty. Soup I had was excellent and the salads according to others was great. Later came the sandwiches and scones for the rest of the high tea. We were in a separate room and it felt really intimate...

As a person in the "tea Biz" myself, I am F-U-S-S-Y. I've "done tea" a lot: little cramped tea rooms across the UK, fancy-scmancy parlours in London including Waldorf's Palm Court, Browns' Hotel, The Ritz, Adare Manor in Ireland and several here in the Mid Atlantic region. This clean, well-lighted, energetic endeavor is just the right mix of traditional with... More
