Join me on my epic quest to find the best tea ever

Amphitheatre Bar

The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London, WC2E 9DD

Theatres and concert halls tend to have bars where you can buy tea. It’s a useful tip if you want to go somewhere quiet and a bit different. The Royal Opera House Amphitheatre Bar is open during the day for food and drinks and we headed inside to see if they had tea.

They had a range of cake, including macaroons and strange white bricks. We guessed cheesecake but when we asked the barstaff it turned out to be a giant marshmallow. Well, we thought, this doesn’t happen every day, we’ll share one.

It was minty. A big fat peppermint marshmallow. We tried to cut it in half but it sprang back at us and wouldn’t be cut. So I ate half and then my Mum ate the rest. Very strange and didn’t go well with tea. Worth trying, anyway.

Giant marshmallow and teabag tea.

The tea was a teabag in a cup job, even though it said a pot on the menu. I was disappointed. Nice view of the bar below though.

Teapot? No.
Leaf tea? No.
Milk jug? Yes.
Price? £2 I think.
Cake? Yes.
Go again? No.

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.
