Looking for a great place to relax and enjoy a great cup ‘a tea? Well even if you answered no, I guarantee you’ll come back for more after you visit Kaleisia Tea Lounge. ‘Creative Loafing’ voted Kaleisia, the ‘Best Kept Secret of Tampa Bay’ last year, and for good reason. Voted "Best Kept Secret of Tampa Bay"

Kaleisia stocks over a hundred different teas, including green, black, rooibos (red), white, oolong, signature, fruit/herbal, and decaffeinated, all double sealed and contained to deliver freshness over convenience.

They also serve Vietnamese coffee, smoothies, and vegan food. In case all this seems too intimidating, the staff is always there to understand your taste, and suggest something that will appeal to your palette. The owners of Kaleisia, Kim Pham, Lan Ha and Daniel Lee have immense knowledge and passion for tea. They’re dedication to their work shows, and the clear difference in quality helps everyone appreciate the benefits of forgoing convenience for a better beverage.

So give them a shot, and tell them ‘Rufus’ (that what they call me there) sent you. If you’d like to get more info on them you can always visit their website, preview the lounge and what they’re about.
