Last visited about two years and thought it was a bit unusual, put off a bit by the huge selection of teas and took far too long to decide, and didn't really feel it was my type of place. However as friends love this place came back today for a long overdue catch up and so glad I did. The... More

Always enjoy a trip here this unique little tea shop, with very friendly staff who will help you find the right taste. I've sampled the food a few times and I do like the cakes and there lunch menu is a refreshing change from most places.

Preston is developing an excellent range of individual "eating places" . The Mystery Tea House is a prime example. Then variety and range of teas is exceptional plus good cakes and other drinks, in particular the fruit juices. A lovely friendly welcome across 2 floors and an intriguing quirky setting. You'll never go to any ordinary tea shop again.

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.
