“Afternoon Tea anytime ...”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

What a great idea you can visit All About Tea and learn just that `All about tea` whilst sampling some of their varied varieties including Portsmouth Tea.and enjoy cake too.
The location is easy to reach and we were made to feel very welcome.

“A Relaxing Afternoon Tea”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

This is not a restaurant but it is a fantastic experience visiting All About Tea. You can walk around and see and sample the scent of all of the different teas available. And then you can sit and relax and have a cuppa of your choice and a slice of delicious home made traditional cake. The staff are absolutely lovely, helpful and knowledgeable. It would be very easy to lose track of time as you savour the complex flavours of your individual pot of tea. An absolute must if you love tea like All About Tea obviously does.

Also if you are not in the Southsea area you can buy all of the teas over the Internet. www.allabouttea.co.uk/

“A Refreshing Experience”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 via mobile

All About Tea is listed under the Restaurants section, but could equally be listed under Attractions because a walk round the various racks is an education in itself. The cafe/tea sampling area is not huge but the seating is very comfortable and the ambience induces relaxation. An unbelievable range of tea and a small selection of tasty cakes as an accompaniment. The welcome was warm and staff are keen to share their knowledge of the different blends. An excellent and very different experience and we will no doubt work our way through other blends.

Thank you very much for your review! Since your visit, we have greatly enlarged the cafe/tea room area, and added many new options, such as freshly-squeezed fruit juice, milk shakes, smoothies, and a small selection of light food.

“Tea time. That's what it's all about.”
Reviewed 20 January 2014 via mobile

Tea lovers will love this as its tea tea tea. Oh, and cake. Think of an odd and unusual tea flavour... They've got it. Think of another one... They've got that too. Another? Yep.

Nice comfy worn leather chesterfield sofas, pleasant service, nice tea and cake.

It's for tea people really.

I suppose the main drive of what I'm saying is, it's all about tea.
