My Tea Break

Rediscovering Tea around the world

Royal Albert London Tea Tour


This is a great idea! Royal Albert, the purveyors of floral tableware and Tea sets, are doing a Tea tour around London with a vintage-theme van serving Tea, macaroons, ice-cream and other afternoon Tea treats. Today there were in Spitafields market so I went there to check it out!



If there are spaces, you get offered a seat at a table, and you can get a 3 tier cake stand filled with tiny cupcakes and macaroons and obviously a Cup of Tea in their lovely tea sets. Royal Albert has been established since 1986 and focus on floral designed tableware,Tea sets and other accessories.

Victoria Wood’s Nice Cup of Tea

Comedy legend Victoria Wood travels the globe to explore Britain’s love affair with Tea in a two-part special on the little plant that changed the world.

From the back streets of Kolkata to the mega city of Shanghai, Victoria reveals how the cozy cuppa united east and west, triggered wars and helped us win them. Along the way she peeks into a fascinating world of chai wallahs, opium smokers, Assam Tea pickers and grumpy elephants. She asks: how did this strange exotic leaf become such an important part of British life?

What is it about Tea we love so much, and how did we all end up hooked?

Put on the kettle for a nice cup of Tea and check out Episode 1 here:
