A great selection of loose-leaf teas at this traditional tea room down by the riverside in Exeter, and a very warm welcome, even on International Pirates Day…
The review of this tea room will appear in our book on tea and coffee in the UK’s cathedral towns and cities. The ebook is now available, with a shorter print version out this autumn. Here’s the link to all our books…

This is a genuine tea lovers’ paradise, with so many loose-leaf teas on the menu that I lost count at 13 white teas, 17 green teas and a list of rooibos and herbals – there are over 100 teas on the menu, apparently. They get most of the teas in from Canada, but they blend their house brew themselves (a fantastic, strong blend of Assam and Kenya). The scones and cakes are all baked on-site and are delicious. Lots of options for Afternoon Tea: there’s the Full Tea (£17.50), which comprises a sandwich, scone, cream & jam, dropped scone & syrup, cake and marmite on toast; or a simple cream tea (two scones, cream and jam); you can even order a half cream tea (one scone!). The clotted cream is special; and the apple & ginger jam home-made.

It’s a pleasant walk along the riverside to get to this tea room. But best way there from the centre of Exeter is to take the footbridge across the river from The Quay.
