Tea for you and me

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

48 Brushfield Street, London, E1 6AG.

Checked tablecloth, tea, beer and juice at s&m.

Before we go any further, I’ll clarify that the ‘s’ and the ‘m’ here stand for sausage and mash respectively. s&m is a cafe opposite Spitalfields Market that sells, surprisingly, sausage and mash. Considering it names itself after sausage and mash I thought there was not a lot of choice of aforementioned sausages and mash, but never mind. The sausages were very tasty, but the mash was cold by the time we got it which was a bit of a shame.

The tea was okay, it was just a tea bag in a mug but they did give us a saucer for our dead teabags and a jug of milk as well, so not that bad. It did seem a tad pricey for just a mug of tea though: £1.80. It was a cafe that was made to look like an old fashioned ‘caff’, but it wasn’t really, so a bit odd from that point of view.

Teapot? No.
Leaf tea? No, a pyramid shaped teabag.
Milk jug? Yes, the menu also offered soya milk if you wanted it but they didn’t have any left when JF asked for some.
Price? £1.80 for the tea, £8.95 for three sausages and mash, £4.95 for a pudding.
Cake? No, but pudding.
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.
