Tea – London Shops Selling Quality Tea

British people are known for their tea drinking, but unfortunately they mostly drink over-brewed tea with milk and sugar. For the tea connoisseur this is a complete no-no. So if you’re visiting London and want to buy some quality black, oolong, green or white tea, where should you head. This is my personal choice of the best tea shops in London.

My favourite is Tea Smith in Spitalfields Market (6 Lamb Street, E1 6EA, Tel: 020 7247 1333). Here you can explore the world of exceptional teas – delicate Whites, energising Greens, aromatic and complex Oolongs, and mysterious aged Puers. Here you can buy tea to take away or sample various teas at their tea bar. The quality of the tea is truly exceptional.

Another of my regular tea shops is Teaspoon in Paddington (195 Praed Street, W2 1RH, Tel: 020 7402 0499). This is where I get my favourite tea from – Organic Dragon Well. They also sell a great tasting Organic Silver Needle Tea – it’s low in caffeine, so great for drinking in the evening.

If you’re in central London, then the Tea Palace in Covent Garden (12 Covent Garden Market, WC2E 8RF Tel: 020 7836 6997) is the place to head for. Tea Palace has a very large range of quality teas to choose from and also sell presentation packs – idea for a present for the tea-lover in your life. Tea Palace tea can also be bought at Selfridges (400 Oxford Street, W1A 1AB) and Mitsukoshi (14-20 Regent Street, SW1Y 4PH)

Another neat little tea shop is yumchaa (91/92 Camden Lock Place, Upper Walkway, West Yard, NW1 8AF & 45 Berwick Street, Soho, W1F 8SF). Yumchaa also have a stall at Portobello Market on Saturdays.
