5 reviews of Tea in English
I occassionally walk past Tea and it always seems very popular
I checked my fellow Qypers reviews and decided to pop up for tea today with some colleagues
To be honest I cannot say if the food was varied but there seemed to be quite a few things in the fridge to pick from
There were lots of tasty looking sausages rolls and cakes in the cabinets though
The choice of tea is superb and I really like that you pay, find a table and your brew is brought to you. No mess. No fuss.
Each teapot is brewed as it should be.
I had a very enjoyable, light Assam and my colleague had a "tasty" Ceylon
Judging by the speed in which the toasties and sandwiches were eaten by my colleagues, we could not fault the food
It's a little small as the downstairs was closed but I am sure it's worth the effort to find a table inside or out
Tea is ideally situated for St Pauls and the City but it is a little tucked out the way
My only criticsm is that minimum payment on cards is £5. This seems very backward in a world/city where fast chip and PIN payments are the norm for purchases large or small. Remember if you go for just a cuppa, take some cash!

If you like a pot of well brewed tea and are near St Pauls in the City - try out TEA.
The varieties of tea and the manner in which they brew it correctly is what sets this establishment apart.
It's a smallish place, with a dowstairs area and some outdoor seating to help swell the numbers.
Can get busy at times but service is always cordial and there are some yummy tea goodies they'll serve you with your tea - at very nice chunky wooden tables. That's not enough? Well, you could always cast your eyes towards the spires and steps of St Pauls!
PS They will make you a cup of coffee as well .... but you've really come here for some tea and sanity, remember?
Yes, tea is their speciality (coffee also available though) and the service is great, especially for a café next to St Paul’s Cathedral. A good mix of speciality teas and their own blend tisanes. Felicitea or Immunitea, anyone?
The relaxed atmosphere works early in the morning as well as later in the day. It’s the sort of out of the way place busy execs go at 3pm for a quiet chat hoping no-one will spot them amongst the tourists.
Watch out for the opening hours though, they change frequently. They shut at 6pm these days, not great if you want to hang out but avoid the City bars and their after work crowds. Maybe they’ll change them again soon and stay open longer this summer…
Really enjoyed stopping by here - a wonderful array of teas and coffee on offer. The cream team with jam and scones is also highly recommmended. The only downside is that it is a little small so can be hard to find seat.
It is also in a nice spot if you are sightseeing and visitng St Pauls.
This is a great spot to sit and rest your weary feet after having wandered along the Thames all afternoon enjoying a warm day. They give you brewed tea in a teapot and a real cup to drink from. (I detest drinking from paper cups, ruins the experience) I had the dragonwell (one of my current favorite teas) and B had a pricey oolong. They have all the teas and herbal teas represented on their menu, with at least 4 to choose from in each category (green, black, white, herbal).
The tea is brewed for you, so it arrives at the table (they bring it to you!) and doesn’t need fiddling with (no leaves in the pot). I thought they did a great job of brewing my dragonwell, though I thought the oolong was a bit overbrewed, or maybe they used too much tea. I’m a bit of a tea geek, so don’t worry. Their tea is far superior to those from coffee-chains-that-shall-not-be-named. Since you get a pot, you also get a nice amount of tea. I think our expensive teas were 2.5 quid each. We added a warm scone with cream and jam for 2.7 quid, though I’d get the sticky toffee cake next time (it looked yummy). The scone wasn’t very warm (and comes with currants fyi).
No bookings required, this is a happy drop-in kinda place. And it’s full of funky old tables of the exact sort that I’ve been searching for for my own house of late. Now if only they sold tables and tea.
