Description: The Real Tea Café is a truly independent and contemporary tea experience for people who love tea and respect tea and simply long to stumble upon a decent cup of the stuff while they are out and about. The antithesis of the old-fashioned tearoom – all dusty knick-knacks and lace tablecloths – The Real Tea Café is relaxing, cheerful, fashionable and fresh. Its modern image, vivid colours, rich fabrics and comfortable leather seating areas (just perfect for lingering) lift the mood and lend a sense of occasion without ever being stuffy or intimidating.The Real Tea Café serves a handpicked selection of black, green, white and blue teas, all brewed from the finest whole leaves from the world’s top estates. Also on offer will be infusions and our own unique blended coffee, using a combination of Brazillian Daterra & El Salvador Monte Sion Bourbon beans. All the teas will be available in regular sizes, to drink in or takeaway in our iconic branded cups. Our founder Anthony believes that using local produce and suppliers for our sandwiches is equally important so we use a family butcher in Bull Street for our cooked meats and Paxton & Whitfield (right opposite the store) for our cheeses. Veg comes from just outside Stratford. Finally the bread, Anthony grew up in a small town called Wantage in Oxfordshire and the flour for the breads comes from the traditional Wessex Mill right in the centre of Wantage. All sandwiches, ciabatta, & salads are made fresh in the store that morning

Tea is really good and atmosphere is very bright and happy. Modern interior with some unusual colours and good design dishes. Good place for people who love tea! But I would love to see outside sitting places and meniu on tables.

In the tourist filled town I was getting overwhelmed by so many people, so I stepped into the real tea cafe. I'm so glad I did! I am now in for the second time today because the tea was absolutely amazing. Try their soup as well; caters to nearly any allergy. This shop is lovely :)

Really liked this place. The friendly branding is just right without being too 'fun'. They know their teas, care what they're talking about and are chilled out and polite. Good tea and good decor and good prices. Like it.

A great selection of tea, with their signature blend gong down a treat. The decor is nice, and the atmosphere cosy. The flapjack was disappointing, but the tea made up for it.

This is tea as tea should be. I loved watching them make it too! You can get a coffee there but then why would you. A really lovely spot to drop in for an authentic cuppa - plenty of choice too.

I really loved my visit to The Real Tea Cafe, the stuff were all really lovely and friendly and the cafe has a very calm and relaxed atmosphere. Prices are not expensive and the food and drink is all very yummy! I also loved the huge range of different teas you offered. Would definitely reccomend The Real Tea Cafe

staff were very helpful and informative about how to make decaffeinated tea by using water. Also the cafe itself was clean, comfortable and reasonably priced.

We enjoyed a 'real' cup of tea at the cafe and can only say the experience was comparable to the ones experienced in India. Great staff very knowledgable and excellent value for money.
