As autumn ushers in cooler temperatures and changing foliage colors, it brings with it an array of opportunities for tea, many of them highlighted in this issue.

From a casual come-and-go to a sit-down affair to an intimate teatime for two, there’s something for all aesthetics. A visit to a new-to-you tearoom or tea shop offers another wonderful way to indulge. Be sure to read, beginning on page 46, about some excellent venues in beautiful western Maryland.
