I’ve just been down to London over the weekend, and was lucky to have a couple of really good tea experiences – so I thought I’d share them :)
Firstly, I was intending to go to Postcard Teas, but unfortunately they were closed that weekend. I did get a recommendation to visit East Teas in Borough Market however; http://www.eastteas.com/
I talked to Alex there, who was fantastically helpful and interesting. I’ve picked up a couple of teas – a chinese red and an oolong, both of which I am very much looking forward to trying!
I also went to TeaSmiths – http://www.teasmith.co.uk/
This was undoubtedly the best tea service I’ve ever had. They use a variety of brewing methods – gaiwan & yi xing teapots among others – and serve multiple infusions, brewed at the bar in front of you.
I’ll definitely be back when I next make it to London!
Sounds so fun! I need to find a good tea house in my area…
