Afternoon Tea in the Emperor's Tea Room is temporarily suspended until State of Illinois issues guidelines for re-opening of restaurants. 

Interested in having Afternoon Tea delivered to your home? We are evaluating ways to do that, let us know if you are interested!

We're open again!

Our store will open from 11 am to 6 pm until further notice. Yorktown Center is open, from 10 am to 8 pm daily, 11 am to 6 pm on Sundays.  Many stores are operating on reduced hours, so do call first if you are coming in the evening.

Our retail section is open for loose leaf tea and accessories, as well as hot and iced tea to go.  Tea, scones and fruit will be served beginning August 1, however a full Afternoon tea service will not be available until a later date. Masks are required in the store, and social distancing guidelines are recommended. 

Of course we will be following the State of Illinois and DuPage County and the Illinois Dept. of Health for restaurant guidelines and restrictions.
