Lady Camellia Pastry and Tea Room, once described by Washington City Paper as “a six-year-old’s tea party fantasy“, is relocating from Georgetown to an equally posh but overall better waterfront: Old Town Alexandria.

Where exactly in Old Town Lady Camellia is relocating isn’t clear. The tea shop hasn’t announced a new address, and the shop couldn’t be reached for comment, but the shop did say it will be on the waterfront. The new tea room could be opening sometime next spring or summer.

“A brand new adventure is brewing,” the tea shop said in a message to patrons. “We are so excited to share with you that we are planning to reopen our tearoom hopefully in the spring/summer 2022. We have never thought that we would do it all over again but we’ve missed you all so much and cannot wait to serve you again in the tearoom. This time we are bringing our service to the beautiful waterfront scenery in the historic Old Town Alexandria.”

Lady Camellia also said that delivery, pickup and shipping services would be suspended at the end of November to put all the focus on preparing to reopen in Alexandria.

“Gift cards will remain to be offered and we cannot thank you enough for all your continuous support,” the tea shop said. “Cheers to the many many precious moments that we will celebrate.”
