Offering the largest selection of teas in the world, all served in Instagrammable colourful canisters, TWG Tea Leicester Square puts tea back on the map in London.
The Singapore-based shop boast shelves upon shelves of teas, a Chinese-themed tea lounge, a restaurant and even a small-scale museum with tea-themed knick-knacks.
Pick from fine harvest teas and special blends for a relaxing cuppa. Or choose one of the many tea-infused dishes from the menu, ranging from mushroom soup with Pu-Erh 2000 tea to chateaubriand steak with matcha fries and a tea-infused vinaigrette.
And, of course, it wouldn’t be a tea shop without serving afternoon tea; which also uses tea in creative ways: think tea jelly and tea-flavoured macarons.
