I have been going to The Empress Tea Room since before it moved to my area. They offer several varieties of excellent whole leaf teas (peach, lemon grass, roobios, English Breakfast, etc.) There is a formal area and a garden area, so you have a choice how fancy of an experience you can enjoy. The staff is lovely and there is a quaint gift area at the front of the shop specializing in tea and Victorian items as well as other neat things. My niece loves to come here when she visits from West Virginia, and my husband enjoys it as well. They also offer a High Tea and Sunday Brunch Buffet which I will try in the future. It's a lovely experience.
