I have been enjoying Empress Tea room for over 5 years now with my mother (sometimes my husband) and my two young girls (whom have enjoyed tea from the time I was pregnant with them!). We absolutely LOVE IT! We live in Thonotosassa and gladly make the trip to visit Kim and her family and staff to enjoy High (sometimes Higher) Tea! We love that we are always greeted with a smile and my girls enjoy their hugs. The tea is always delicious and the food is amazing to say the least! I look forward to dining and sipping tea from the time I make our reservation!
