The Tea House Emporium

By GirlaboutBath • Bath, tea • 5 Apr 2012

Today I mostly drank tea. This is worryingly easy to do in excess in Bath, due to the plethora of stylish cafes, tea houses and eateries that can be found on nearly every street. Of the three I visited today (for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea – see, I told you it can be excessive!) The Tea House Emporium, showed once again why it’s a favourite of mine.

This tearoom is a real hidden gem due to the underground location but therefore an oasis of calm as soon as you descend the staircase.  Relaxing music, gentle Moroccan lighting and the friendly hosts make for a thoroughly enjoyable ambience, with the obligatory selection of Bath Life magazines to occupy you if you’re alone.  When you think it can’t get better, you’re handed a menu of teas; pages and pages of choice; tasty blends from across the globe.  When you finally manage to pick something that sounds even better than every other option, it arrives in it’s teapot in no time, accompanied by a timer so that it brews for the optimum time before pouring.  You then start to wonder where you can purchase your own tea-timer as surely this is the way forward!

The extra bonus is the friendly (and delicious-smelling) shop above that sells a wide range of the teas – personal favourites include the Caramel and Snowbound blends.  If you haven’t visited this underground haven, I really do recommend a visit soon.

  1. I love testing out the teas in the cafe, and smelling all the jars upstairs, such a great place!
