Welcome to The Tilted Teacup Tea Room & Boutique situated just 2 blocks from Main Street in downtown Brooksville. We are located in an old southern style house with a quaint front porch. If you listen closely you will feel as if you are going back in time as you hear the church bells ringing and the sound of the whistle as the train passes by. While spending time sipping tea with friends in an unhurried atmosphere. We offer fresh baked scones, homemade quiche, soups, and desserts.

Come and enjoy a personal pot of tea of your choice under our majestic old oak tree...

My three best friends and I just had one of our best tea experiences at the Tilted Teacup!! Even though we were late and spent longer than we should have catching up over wonderful pots of tea (we purchased the Sleepy Hollow on the way out) our hosts were gracious, and the food was great, and the ambiance was superb!!!! We look forward to returning again!!

My daughter and I recently visited The Tilted Teacup. I have to say that I think this is our new favorite tea room. The building itself is adorable and from the minute you open the door, the atmosphere is very cozy. Both of the owners were so nice and the girl who waited on us was very attentive and sweet. We had high tea and it was delicious. I loved my soup and the crustless quiche was outstanding. The desserts were a little too sweet (if that is possible) and I wish they had sugar cubes, but these are minor things. We also liked that there was a gift area to buy tea related things. We both ended up buying bracelets with cute little teapots on them and I also got a set of 'tea' spoons. We will be back for tea again!!!

Have visited this tea room multiple times and I have to say it is my favorite! The food, service and tea is wonderful, as well as the decor of this beautiful house. The special events they plan throughout the year are a lot of fun, too.

Three of us drove from St Petersburg to this fabulous tea room for our first experience on 2/7/14 and totally loved every minute of our time. The food was delicious, the scones were served warm and service from Jan was fun and friendly. We loved the town and everyone we met in Brooksville and can't wait till our next trip!

What a wonderful recent High Tea Luncheon we had with you .... we are so happy to have discovered you, hidden among those magestic oaks and in the quaint little town of Brooksville, it was a great Saturday adventure. Aimee and John, we were all delighted to met you and discover so many interests together, tea 'talk' high on our lists. Thank you for your gracious hospitality and to the staff, we all so enjoyed.

I took a bus of 50 ladies to this Tea Room for a pot of Tea and sweets and the Swedish Apple Cake was hot out of the oven and they all said was mouth watering good! I had the pumpkin cheese cake and it was the best! Raves about the carrot cake too. When you get not one complaint from 50 ladies you know the food is excellant. Thanks for the good time. I been getting feed back there will be a lot of returns to eat again at your place!

What a grand experience !!! Every single moment you are in the tearoom and on the grounds of this beautiful refurbished home you feel the magic! The way you are treated makes you want to continue visiting every chance you get. They welcome you as if you are old friends and make you feel warm and fuzzy all over !
Now let's talk about the food. Which is AMAZING !! Every menu item is so fantastic (and I tried most of them ) you just can't help eating more and more. I know Amiee is a fabulous chef however, I know her secret ingredient is true love for her guests . You can taste it in every bite . Her scones are some of the best I've ever had , not to mention that quiche ! The tea selection is massive, I drink pot after pot at each sitting ! Goodness I want to visit again right now ! I'v...

Very Pricey for the small portions you get. Menu is limited on selections. Tea Room is very small, but pretty. Not sure I would return, this Tea Room just doesn't compare to the other tea rooms in Mt Dora and Weeki Wachee.

- Amy 08/26/13

Tearoom Response
Very sorry you feel that way Amy. Thank you for being honest and taking the time to write us a review. We do pride ourselves on the quality of the food as well as the portions. We will definitely take this review to heart. Have a blessed day:)

My sister and I and my granddaughter were here in early June. I never thought to write a review until I came upon this page. We had a wonderful time and one of the very best high teas we've ever had (and we try all the tearooms across Florida). To borrow a line from Mary Poppins: The Tilted Tea Cup is 'practically perfect in every way!' In fact, if you believe in 'perfect' it truly is! The food is excellent and very professionally prepared and served (highest compliments to Aimee!). There are so many delicious and inviting teas that it is hard to choose one (not to worry, though, the teas are available for sale in the gift shop). The tea room is in a Victorian home that is decorated beautifully and filled with southern charm (including a big front porch with a swing and small tables.)... (more)

All I can say is wow as I read these reviews we feel so blessed by all of our wonderful guests...you really do become our friends and a part of our story. The compliments are not taken lightly, as they are so appreciated to let us know we are doing a good job. We realize how truly blessed we are to have met such wonderful people and pray that each of you have that wonderful and warm experience with us. Again it is a pleasure to serve you and have you visit our sweet tea room.

What a lovely afternoon I spent with my daughter on Saturday celebrating the Titanic Tea event. The teas chosen were wonderful and the tea trays were lovely as well as very tasty. We enjoyed the room we were in along with a group of lovely ladies that came from The Villages and dressed for the occasion! We wound up exchanging phone numbers and e-mails! Aimee and John you did a wonderful job. The servers were all very attentive and we lucked out -- we got Aimee's Mom as our server and she was such a delight! (I think you should hire her full time!!) We always enjoy visiting your lovely tea room. It is so calming, a true break in the day. Your staff is always very gracious and I have seen them all improve each time I've visited. We look forward to our next visit.

My daughter, two friends and I absolutely enjoyed our vist yesterday to experience the Salute to the Titanic. One of the hi-lites was talking to John and Amiee about the history of the house and getting the tea room off the ground. We are all looking forward to our next visit. One suggestion...have some signs around town directing you to the Tilted Teacup.

- Helen Cooney, Clermont 07/28/13

We're so glad you enjoyed our tea room Helen:) I've actually put signs around town, but the zoning doesn't allow them so they get picked up. We do have a billboard and looking to get another one. Thanks for the tip!

A group of my Victorian club members attended the Titanic Tea event. The food was delicious, the potato soup was divine, marvelous teas,lovely place setting, and the efficient, lovely server who told us tales of Titanic survivors. We loved this tearoom and plan to travel there many times to sample their delights especially that soup!.

This tea room has great potential -- just has a few quirks to work out, mostly with the service. They haven't been open long, so perhaps they will get the quirks worked out. The staff was inattentive yet friendly and apologetic. The Hawaiian chicken finger sandwich has the potential to set this tea room apart from other tea rooms if they were more generous with the filling. My tiered tray arrived before my tea or even a plate, and I believe more experience is needed in the preparation of the tea or perhaps a better storage of the tea as the flavored black I chose was bland. The ambiance of the place is delightful and I do pray the quirks are worked out quickly and this tea room will thrive.

- Tonya 02/21/13

Tearoom Response
Thank you very much for your review Tonya. We embrace it and continue to learn and make necessary adjustments so that everyone gets a consistent experience and attention. As far as the tea, we do carry a premium loose leaf tea from Metropolitan Tea Company and I assure you they are in proper tin storage units, but that does not constitute or excuse a bland tea. We do pride ourselves in our quality tea and will make adjustments to make sure that the quality embraces every pot of tea. Thank you again for your response and hope to have the opportunity to serve you again. Have a blessed day...

Absolutely loved it! My mom and I drove over from the east coast of Florida to do some antiquing and found the Tilted Tea Cup online during some research. My mom and I had the high tea and afternoon tea. The difference between them is the extremely delicious loaded baked potato soup served in a tea cup - at least in today's offering. There was a crust less spinach and sun dried tomato quiche that was cheesy goodness. The finger sandwiches included were Hawaiian chicken on cinnamon raisin, pimiento cheeses on pumpernickel swirl, and cucumber rounds on white - they were all fabulous and were served beautifully. The strawberry scones were heart shaped and moist and yummy served with sweetened clotted cream. My mom, an avid coffee drinker, loved the nutcracker tea and my buckingham palace tea ... (more)
