Today we went to a new place two towns over called the British Chip Shop – I can’t resist a place that serves chips with HP sauce and malt vinegar! They serve all the best loved British foods – bangers and mash, fish and chips, mushy peas, rarebit, pasties, you name it! We had a delicious meal followed by a pot of PG Tips and shortbread with lemon curd and berries.
It was an enjoyable pot of tea, but nothing mind blowing. Much better than the everyday teas served in the average American restaurant like Lipton or Tetley, but sort of in that same, nondescript family. I’m used to drinking way better tea :)
I would definitely get a pot again if (WHEN!!! I loved it there!!) I return to the restaurant, as part of the whole experience. I was not inspired in the least bit to take some leaves home with me (across the street is the English Gardener shop which is run by the restaurant owner’s parents! They sell PG Tips, Yorkshire tea, Barry’s, Taylors of Harrogate, etc as well as all the British specialty foods.).
Still, very nice, especially with shortbread. I’m not complaining :)
