Inside Lee Rosy's Tea

It was that time again and E, H, N and I were off to try tea. We had picked Nottingham as we hadn’t tried that way for tea before and had done some online hunting that had yielded two potential tea places. The first was Lee Rosy’s Tea.

It’s not in the main shopping area, but instead a little way away oppostite the Broadway Cinema. We rounded the corner and spied the shop and it was just the kind of place I had been hoping it would be. Free wifi, a cosy atmosphere, adverts for book groups and knitting groups and so many different types of tea. I wished it could be nearer where I lived so I could go there more often.

I chose (after much deliberation) a pot of Darjeeling Puttabong which I’d never heard of before. We had the choice of a mug or a pot and I chose a pot thinking that it would give me more tea and it did, but it gave me too much tea! I never thought I’d say that but it had at least three mugs worth and I couldn’t finish it. It’s hard for me to admit that but there, it’s out in the open now.

Tea and a cappucino at Lee Rosy's Tea

The Darjeeling Puttabong was good and so was E’s Jade Oolong. N had English Breakfast which he said was nice and H had an ‘all right’ cappucino. A good find and worth a visit.

Teapot? Yes.
Leaf tea? Yes.
Milk jug? Yes, a very large milk jug, just how we like it.
Price? £2.50 for a pot of tea.
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.
