Unique, Quaint, Healthy, Sociable and just a little bit different!

The mystery Tea Shop is one of the wonderful ‘hidden’ gems of Preston. A great place to relax, have an exotic brew and some great homemade food. Found off the main shopping strip at the bottom of Cannon Street. I was in a group who popped in for lunch. They have a downstairs area with 4 or 5 tables, all... More

We chose some teas after receiving advice and information about various flavours (lots to choose from) - they were served in glass teapots with miniature sized glass mugs; lovely. We also ordered food, gluten-free toastie, baguettes served hot straight out... More

You don't often come across people who totally make your day...but you will here. A range of teas, with easy salad based lunches served by lovely people who are genuinely happy and positive around you and a must do. See for yourself...

A hidden gem within the city of Preston is an understatement. Cute and unique place, totally different from everywhere else, with a relaxing atmosphere. Plenty of tea to choose from to either take away or drink in. Wide range of options on the food menu including that for GLUTEN FREE! Prices are fantastic for the portion sizes here and defiantly...

The food is to die for, the atmosphere is tranquil and the staff are all delightful. The prices are brilliant and its extremely nice to see so many gluten free options within the menu. The only thing I find when I come here, which is often, is that the service is very very slow. It is nice to not feel... More

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
