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.
