A Thai Inspired Tea and Sandwich Shop in Winter Park
KrungThep Tea Time, Winter Park, FL
Starting a business is the one of the hardest things to do. Not only does it take time, effort, and determination, but also a creative and enterprising spirit. Two years ago, Ping and Pemi worked to create a new and unique tea house in Orlando, with the idea of bringing their culture and food in a classy and modern twist.
One year ago, KrungThep Tea Time opened on the corner of Fairbanks and Ward in Winter Park. Since then, people have enjoyed their variety of teas and Thai flavor inspired sandwiches. We had a chance to interview them a week ago, and see what inspired them to create the minimalist eatery in Winter Park.
Ping (Pannarint) and Pemi (Pemika) both immigrated from Thailand a handful of years ago and moved to Los Angeles to study. Pemi also studied a couple years at Full Sail. After a couple years of moving back and forth between there and Orlando, they finally decided to set off on creating a shop.
