Thé-ritories, tea time English-style
Have you ever had tea with a fox? Surprising as it may seem, once you have passed through the door of this little shop, you would almost expect it! English countryside tones, a distressed wooden counter, padded leather armchairs arranged around small rustic tables, cups, bowls and teapots help to create the ambience of a cottage in Sussex. And, as the name suggests, tea is the focus here. White, red, green, and blue teas, blends naturally flavoured or dark, or vintage teas make up the menu, which changes with the seasons and in accordance with human-scale harvests and the requirements of responsible agriculture. The approach is thoroughly engaged and knowledgeable and the service is very particular. Neophytes, connoisseurs and experts alike can savour the art of the traditional tea-time. The tea can, of course, be accompanied by a snack, and there are some deliciously tempting treats on offer, including jar salads, Piccadilly sandwich, Victoria's Station Salad, scones, marmalade and clotted cream. Everything is in place for tea-time as it should be.
