We are a specialist tea house, set in the delightful centre of Richmond upon Thames, that serves over 50 teas as well as Monmouth coffee, tea cocktails, champagne, wine, beer and cider.

Our extensive food menu has something for everyone and for those wishing to celebrate a special occasion we can put on a generous afternoon tea at only £18.50 Per person.

If you need loose leaf tea or any tea ware we also sell a wide range of tea infusers, strainers, teapots and other tea accessories as well tea in a range of sizes, both in refill bags and tins.

You can even enjoy a drink and snack while listening to live jazz on the last Sunday of every month, poetry on the second Friday of every month or storytelling for adults on the first Friday of every month (ring us to check if you need to buy tickets first). Want to learn to knit or make new friends? Come along between 7pm-9pm on Wednesdays for our Social Knitwork night.
