A place to relax experience a variety of teas, with a smelling wall. (You can smell all the teas beforehand.) People eating in, soup and bread or have a take out. Décor excellent and tasteful. The staff were very knowledgeable and gave us good advice. A very enjoyable break on the journey from Ipswich to Edinburgh.

If you want somewhere you can drink your favourite tea and read your favourite book this is the place for you. Staff are very friendly and I felt I could just take my time.

We visited Bari Tea just this afternoon for the first time and found a pleasant, charming atmosphere waiting for us. We had the soup, which was perfectly steamy and tasty and a pot of tea to share. I feel that people who love a good cuppa would thoroughly enjoy what's on offer and would appreciate the owners vision the shop.... More

We visited here based on TA reviews and it certainly lived up to the glowing reviews. The atmosphere is relaxing, the tea of the highest quality and backed up with some very tasty soup. The owner was friendly and hospitable, and really deserves the success she has made of this place. Next time we're in town, we'll definitely pop in... More

I would find it hard to love this place more. The staff are amazingly friendly, the cakes are delicious (with special mention to the knobbly, ultra-fresh scones!) and the tea is an experience. The extra-strong Kenyan was my favourite, but there are so many to choose from. This is a truly special place in a lovely town, and I can't... More

I visited Bari tea today as I was looking for some where quiet and cosy. I had crumpets and Cream Earl Grey tea which was on the tea festival menu. There was only one lady serving and while it was quiet there were 4 other tables all to be served at the same time and I have to say the... More

Specialty tea served as tea should be and hot chocolate with a true bite. My colleagues said the scones were among the best ever.

I had planned on visiting Bari Tea since it's opening, however, I never seemed to get around to it. A very good friend and I went one day for a catch-up and I must say the place is absolutely gorgeous inside, the selection of teas is so varied that there's no way we could possibly try them all. The tea... More
