A selection of the best blogs about tea and tearooms


Today’s featured blog is afternoon tea total, which has been sharing in the secret’s of some of London’s top tearooms since 2009.

In Natalie, the author and self-described “cycling afternoon tea obsessive”, we appear to have found somewhat of a kindred spirit. She has visited many of London’s top tearooms, some of which like Bea’s of Bloomsbury or The Wolsley are part of our own repertoire but plenty more are new discoveries for us. We have even learnt a thing or two about baking and bubble tea into the bargain.

We adore her relaxed, friendly style, her wealth of knowledge and clear dedication to the cause. Here is a lady that will clearly leave no crumpet un-buttered in her pursuit of the ultimate tea experience. We also enjoy the narrative and the characters who frequent her reviews, most of all the mysterious ‘Coffee Boy’ who we take to be her adoring suitor and one of the luckiest young men in London.

To both of you we wish happiness down to the last crumb and that you keep up the good work in 2012.

Best wishes,

Lily and Amos


P.s. on a personal note we must share your frustration when a much loved – and sometimes meticulously ‘researched’ tearoom closes down such has been happening a lot to us recently.
