“love it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013

Love this place. Very cool vibe and yet totally unpretentious. Have been twice this week its so good and both times had divine tasting teas and on the second time had an amazing peanut butter brownie! The staff were polite and helpful and the atmosphere was so chilled. Fully deserves the five stars and I look forward to working my way through lots of teas...

“Great choice of tea and fab opening hours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

This appears to be the only non pub/restaurant that is open in the town past 6pm. We went in at 9pm for a cuppa and a chat and it was most relaxing. The choice of teas is amazing, they also have a few coffees, hot chocolate and soft drinks. It is a very relaxed place, and in my opinion will soon be needing somewhere bigger.
The service is very good, friendly people and a fantastic location. Would recommend to all.

“Nice breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

Loads of drinks options but could do with a few more food choices

The tea was lovely though and the service very friendly

Mainly students when we went on a Friday morning but considering the location thats hardly surprising and the service was very good

Will be returning soon

“How refreshing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

Brought some friends I'd never seen for awhile here as I had heard about the buzz and wanted to try something different from posh grub or craft beer. Excellent tea selection and a simple but unusual approach to food. Mega relaxing a great student arty crowd. Highly recommended!

“Perfect vibe.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013

A refreshing antidote to the ubiquitous main street chains. Independent, quirky, comfortable, an infinite variety of tea, friendly staff, great scones, a tiny cinema, live music from time to time, a lovely refurbished building. What more do you need?
