Did you know that January is National Hot Tea Month? Neither did I. But it made me think about those times when my mom took me out for high tea as a little girl. I loved the whole experience—choosing the flavor of tea I wanted, putting way too many sugar cubes in said cup of tea, eating those little finger sandwiches, and on and on. If you're a tea fan as I am, visiting a tea salon for high tea is a great way to regroup with your bridesmaids or even host a pre-wedding luncheon. Here's a list of bed and breakfasts and inns in Maryland (courtesy of The Maryland Office of Tourism) that host afternoon tea (and bonus! A lot of the adorable places host weddings or bridal showers, and would also make great spots for a low-key minimoon):—Kim Forrest, Editor, Brides Maryland
