Some of the best high quality teas are served at places not many are aware of. Everyones knows about Fortnum & Masons and famous big hotels serving Afternoon Tea. However, just around the corner from those on hidden streets and alleyways there are beautiful boutiques, cafes and tea houses that serve amazing teas worth exploring.
A teahouse serving tea made from high quality green Rooibos that is so rare in London . Beautiful Lapsang Souchong with freshly baked scones with home made clotted cream and jam hidden on the sun lit floor of the boutique fashion retailer. Discovering the beauty of the Japanese green tea in the ambiance of another fashion boutique. Immersing in the luxurious teas of the historical brand. Enjoying unique small scale produced teas at a family owned Tea shop on a hidden alley.
This tour is going to take us to the places less known and more precious because of that. Most of these are run by people who are so passionate about what they do, that it is easy to feel a piece of their heart in every tiny detail, in every sip of Tea.
I will be sharing stories about these places as well as a lot of information and tips on tea itself and its daily practicalities.
