The view from my table at Bea's of Bloomsbury

Bea’s of Bloomsbury is a small but enticing cafe that was full the first time I went in and only had one table free the second time I went in. They have a good selection of food and cakes and had a variety of teas available. I could have chosen from salads, flapjacks, meringues, brownies, German chocolate cake, chocolate truffle cake… I was being healthy so I didn’t have any but I sure was tempted.

I only had 15 minutes to spare but I managed a whole pot of extremely nice Earl Grey in that time and would have loved to have had the full afternoon tea. It was very busy when I went on a weekday afternoon though so it would be worth booking a table if you’re going specially (and double checking the times they serve afternoon tea). Definitely one worth another visit.

Teapot? Yes.
Leaf tea? Yes, ‘Jinc’ brand tea which I hadn’t come across before but is very lovely.

Price? £2.30.
Cake? Yes and yes and yes.
Go again? Yes.

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.
