Cosy tea house offering a vast choice of teas and some tasty snacks and light bites. Lovely experience, almost like having tea in a friend's house.

Having heard a lot about this place I finally managed to get here for lunch. It was very busy, but we got a table. Our drinks came fairly quickly but the three meals took a long time. The food was very tasty and we enjoyed our meal. My main problem was the fact that on the menu various dishes were... More

I came here on a Sunday afternoon. The service was great. The tea menu was long and, not being a tea buff, asked for a recommendation. A little while later I was having a Himalayan Adventure all to myself and delightful it was too. The food menu was shorter than the tea menu and a good job too otherwise I... More

I visited here earlier this year with some friends for tea, and we're delighted to discover not only an extensive range of exotic teas to try, but also juices and food too! A lot of vegetarian options too which was a plus for me, and everything we ordered came quickly and was delicious. The staff were friendly and inviting, and... More

We enjoyed our last visit so much we had to come back, this time bringing our veggie daughter who loved the vegan wrap.

On one of my many visits to Preston, I found myself having a special lunch in this special restaurant. A vegans' haven, You know exactly what You're eating here and where it's been sourced. Food is treated preciously, as well as customers. We should have a Mystery Tea House in every city and town of the UK!

The food on offer is pretty simple; toasties and soups, but the ingridients seemed fresh and the food tasted good. There's about 4x pages of tea to choose from so that's great. Everything was reasonably priced - lunch for 3x of us inc drinks was £20. The staff were really polite too. The only reason I'm rating it lower was... More

Been here multiple times and will come a lot more. The staff are lovely and so knowledgable about all the teas on offer. There is a huge range of teas to drink there and also to buy as loose leaf for home. The cakes and sandwiches are marvellous and the soups/stews are to die for! They also have a fab... More
