Been here a number of times and always find enjoyable, from the service to the menu and obviously the wide range of teas. Stumbled across this place by accident originally but definitely the place to come if in preston and want to avoid the aray of comercial venues.

The mystery tea house is hidden away from the mad bustle of Preston on Cannon street, however once inside the quirky decor and very warm friendly and knowledgeable staff take you to another place. The breadth of teas available runs to over 5 pages with descriptions for each type. The Prince of persia with orange,almond,cinamon, cloves and anise served with... More

Have been loads - very friendly, amazing selection of drinks including non caffeine options - also love the fresh banana and cherry juice! Mystery cake is a must try, my husband loves the bean stew with sausage - also amazing value - much cheaper and better than so many chain coffee shops :-))

This really is worth visiting. It is a pleasantly quirky tea shop with a fantastic selection of all sorts of teas. I have also bought some of their teas and tea-making bits and pieces as they make good gifts and they sell them at sensible prices.

Was a bit hard to tell that we were at the tea house because it's not signed posted well enough. The staff were very welcoming. My friends and me visited on a Sunday afternoon, the café was busy which is always a good sign. We sat upstairs, very interesting wordly decoration. Our seats were slightly sunk in. A waitress took... More

Visited for the first time today and was very impressed by the friendly staff, vast range of teas and lovely food. Very quirky and out of the ordinary.

I was disappointed on my last visit. Table was dirty, waited ages for my order to be taken and then another age for food to be brought. Not the best when you've got a "Hangry" child in tow. I've always enjoyed the tea here (immense choice) but I doubt this will be my first choice for a sandwich/snack in future.
