Tea, in solitude

One of my favourite places to stop and sit is at Postcard Teas – a beautiful Georgian building in a most unlikely spot.

Just behind the bedlam of Oxford Street is this perfect little space for contemplation and exquisite tea. In a world of buzzy, too-cool-for-school coffee haunts (don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of those too) this place is refreshingly simple and quiet.

Today I had the most delicious Summer Darjeeling which I decided to send to my tea-loving British friend in Manhattan in the form of one of their Tea Postcards. In an age of texting and instant everything these are such a delightful, original way of saying hello.

As C.S Lewis said – ‘Tea should be taken in solitude’. I’d say this place is the next best thing.
