Enchanting Tea for Two – or Twenty

Tea Room CounterI've discovered the perfect place for a business meeting, a bridal luncheon, new-home gift shopping, or just relaxing in comfort. This gem has been around for several years, but it's tucked in among shops in the back of a suburban shopping area.

Clinton and LaurenStep inside the Enchanted Herb and Tea Room and you're greeted by wonderful scents and the smiling face of Clinton Spellman. Clinton has created a combination shop and café in Owings Mills, MD, not far from the Beltway, that's close to my office but hidden and therefore private. He remembers you from one visit to the next, and always has something delicious on the menu. The atmosphere is very homey and welcoming, which made it the perfect place to meet my friend Lauren recently.

Tea Room NookTea is the centerpiece, with way too many for me to pick from, so I let Clinton decide. He brings me a sample of one of his many Herb and Fruit Teas, Black Teas, Flavored Premium Teas, Green Teas, Chai Teas, etc., and it's always good. To go with the tea you have to try the scones – wonderfully warm and delicious, fresh baked to his recipe. A menu of light fare includes his onion soup that is soooo good. You can enjoy high tea or book a private party, and it's all served on bone china for that authentic tea room touch.Tea Room DisplayTea Room Shelves

For gifts, this is a great source for things you won't find in most stores. He has a wonderful selection of tea pots, cups, teas, herbs, and preserves. I took Clinton's scones and clotted cream to clients (an Irish family) and they were so delighted.

So next time you're looking for a slower pace, personal attention, and a delicious lunch or afternoon tea, visit this enchanting shop. Have a scone for me.

Hi Margaret - I've never really had tea unless I was sick as a child with honey in it.  A place like this one could tempt me to give it a whirl.  What an enchanting place this is!

What a great secret!  Clinton is so warm and inviting.  His Peach-Mango herbal tea was fantabulous!  How nice it was to have a meeting with NO INTERUPTIONS!  I can't wait to return.  Lauren

Very nice, I'm going to remember this if and when I'm back in your area!  I love your blogs about the different things to do in your neck of the woods.

Sharon, It would be my pleasure. Would love for you to visit.

Monika, Come on down and have a cup of tea!

Mary, Let me know when you are in my area. Thanks for the kind words.

Lauren, We can go anytime. Think Clinton will like this post?

Ann, I have taken my husband to this tea room and he really enjoyed the experience. You might enjoy tea when you are well. Give it a try with some new flavors and you might find a new pleasure.

Margaret, Sounds like a wonderful place to visit when in the Baltimore area.  What does he have in our favorite flavor, CHOCOLATE?

Pat, After the delicious scones, there is no need for chocolate.

Did I just say that?!

Margaret, I just love places like this!  It's especially fun to bring clients in that are new to the area!  It really makes your area stand out and the clients love to know the cozy little places more than the franchise places.

Chris, It is fun to discover these wonderful little places. I laminated this post and took it to Clinton. He immediately placed it in his window.
