I was meeting a friend of mine for tea after work but the idea of a quick bog standard tea in a characterless environment of Starbucks, Pret or similar did not appeal to me at all. Don’t get me wrong, it’s good for a quick bite or a beverage on the go but for a nice chat I need something much better.
So instead of a £2 paper cup of average tea I decided to have a top of the range cup of white peony tea for £3.50 served in beautiful china pot and brought to my table by a smiling waitress. Sitting on a properly upholstered Liberty peacock print chair and resting my feet on perfectly varnished wooden floor obviously adds to the experience as does the whole decor and atmosphere of the Liberty tea room. I must consider the extra £1.50 as very well spent.
Of course I had to snap few picture of the windows of my favorite shop in the world!
