The V&A is my favourite museum to go to in London. It’s a museum of design, so everything is useful or beautiful or both. I always get lost and end up finding something I didn’t expect to.

The cafe has lots of different counters with different foods and drinks, there’s a whole counter just for cake! There’s a choice of rooms to sit with your food and drink, including the original refreshment rooms with amazing decor, I spent ages just looking at the ceiling in the room we were in.

There was a wide variety of tea on offer including Orange Pekoe and Darjeeling 1st Flush and though it came in tea bags it was loose leaf in big muslin teabags. We had a lunch of quiche and salad which was excellent. Afterwards we sampled the date, banana and walnut cake and it was moist and tasty.

I would recommend the V&A for a visit and can tell you that the tea’s not bad either.

I like tea and if possible, I'd like it to be loose leaf rooibos in a pot served with milk in a little jug. I'll try and find the places that do this and I'll tell you what they're like. Let me know if you can think of any cafes I haven't covered, I'll get to them if I can.
