A new Scottish tea room is planned on the 600 block of downtown Fredericksburg.

Spilt Tea Fredericksburg is shooting for a May opening at 611 Caroline St. The business, a venture of Susie and Jamie Bower, will be open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and will serve afternoon tea from 2-5 p.m. It will offer about 25 different teas from at least 10 countries, coffee from 25 30 Espresso, and an assortment of shortbread, meringues, cupcakes/cakes and more — all made on site.

Welcome to downtown, Susie and Jamie!
