TeaTime 15: Notable Tearooms That Have Stood The Test of Time

TeaTime 15: Notable TearoomsGypsy’s Tearoom
111 Stoner Avenue • Westminster, MD 21157

It’s been more than 20 years since Gypsy Fleck opened her shop, which initially started as a retail-only store selling loose-leaf teas and various teawares. It wasn’t until her second year of business that she decided to host a special afternoon tea for Mother’s Day. One tea was all it took for customers to come forward and ask that afternoon tea become a regular service. Occupying a historic white house built circa 1760, Gypsy’s Tearoom has four official rooms where tea is served, and a gift shop that sells sundry teas and accoutrements. Along with the different dining options for tea, one of the tearoom’s standout features is the scones, which are rotated daily. Tea services range from $10.50 to $29.95 plus tax per person and can be enjoyed from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. The gift shop is open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Reservations are a must for afternoon tea and can be made by telephone.


  1. Great tearooms. You must check out Josephine’s in Godfrey, IL. You will love it. Not only excellent food, great atmosphere, but room after room of shopping for clothes and the home. We love it! In fact, I am taking my granddaughter there for her 17th birthday this Saturday. Thanks for listening. Barb Dalby

  2. My granddaughter and I had a weekend tea retreat at several tea shops .in Southern California. We went to the Rose Tree Tea Cottage and also Paris In A Cup. The experience was really very nice. We attended another which was also quite enjoyable. It was the Huntington Library and Museum which has a wonderful tea room.
