On the letter T for the A to Z Challenge and I’m choosing Tea Rooms and Tea. I hope all the Tea Rooms in Great Britain survive the COVID-19 shut down! All these photos are from our trip to England in July of 2014.
Although we passed quite a few tea rooms while we were in England I only had tea once and it wasn’t in a tea room. Oye. I will show you many lovely tea rooms that you can choose from if you travel to England. Lucy’s was in Stow on the Wold.
This one was in Broadway in the Cotswolds.
Our daily timing was way off for stopping to enjoy a cup of tea in the afternoon. By then we were usually a bit warm and needed something cooler to drink.
Love the name of this one, Mrs. T. Potts…pretty clever. It was real close to Martha’s coffee house on the main street running through Moreton in Marsh.
On our way to Banbury we saw Mrs. Brown’s Tea room.
In Bourton on the Water there were a few tea rooms to choose from.
This restaurant/tearoom was less appealing than the Small Talk Tearoom above.
If we didn’t manage to walk right past a tearoom we enjoyed seeing signs for tearooms.
We got a little closer to a proper tea experience with these delicious scones and clotted cream but the drink of choice on this morning was coffee in Hay on Wye.
On one of our last days in England I decided it was high time to have some tea so as not to totally disappoint my tea drinking readers.
It wasn’t the finest of tea services in the bar of our hotel. The scones were no where near as nice as the ones we had in Hay on Wye.
This was my tea and tea experience. One hot and the other one cold. The cold one may or may not have had some alcohol in it.
Like I mentioned at the beginning of this post I hope that the many tea rooms in Great Britain will survive the COVID-19 lock down. We are hoping that things will look good enough come September for us to keep our flight and apartment reservations for Oxford, England. We wait and we’ll see.
What is your favorite tea? Do you have a favorite Tea Room? Have you ever attempted to host a proper Tea?
