There are some stereotypes which are so prominent for a reason. There’s no denying that Britain is a nation of tea drinkers and, although Starbucks has converted quite a few of us, there’s still no beating a good cuppa. London is home to some of the best eateries and cafes that serve all kinds of tea blends from around the world.
You can always find a delicious cup of tea waiting for you in the morning at our boutique Hotels in London and there are plenty of places around the city to experience new and exciting flavours. Everyone has their own preferred style of tea, some like it milky, some like it sweet but hopefully this guide to London’s best tea houses will help you find your perfect cuppa.

Scoff and Banter Tea Rooms
Oxford Street, London
After an exhausting morning of shopping at the famous Oxford Street shops, there’s no better way to relax and admire your purchases than with a great cup of tea. The Scoff and Banter Tea Room is one of the most diverse in the city. You can still find all the old classics but if you’re looking to get a bit experimental be sure to browse the menu and try something new, such as the tea room’s signature Rooibos Tiramisu blend.
Urban Tea Rooms
There are a lot of old-fashioned stereotypes about drinking tea that involve floral knitted doilies and antique China cups. If you’re not into all of that, there’s a place hidden in the centre of Soho that has brought tea into the modern world of hipsters and alternative fashion. The guys at Urban Tea Rooms take leaf blending to the next level with their unique menu of different flavour infusions. With plenty to choose from, you won’t struggle to get your tea fix. If you’re looking for something really different, try one of their unique tea-infused cocktails.
Soho’s Secret Tea Room
The great thing about Soho is the diversity found in everything, including the selection of tea rooms. If you’re a fan of the old-school style and strange modern tea blends don’t appeal to you, a trip to Soho’s Secret Tea Room is in order. The classic café offers a nostalgia trip for those looking to experience the authentic tea that Britain is known for.
