Great speciality tea shop that has a huge selection of loose tea and cakes. The kind of place that would be great to bring a book and spend a few hours. The atmosphere is relaxed and staff are friendly. Would definitely visit again

As an avid coffee drinker, I was a little reluctant to visit a tea shop. However, upon entering we were warmly greeted & I was amazed at the abundant varieties of tea on offer. We plumped for the Portsmouth tea which was delicious & we promptly bought a bag to take home. This visit has converted me...now all I need... More

I have to confess that I don't like hot drinks so wasn't expecting too much of a trip here. However I was greeted by polite staff and encouraged to look at their wide variety of speciality teas for sale. I was enchanted by their range, learnt a bit about tea and even bought some small packs as gifts.

We visited this Sat as our belated valentines day treat. We were not disappointed. Loved Southsea tea, just right for our Romsey hard water. We met Bertie the tea spaniel who made us very welcome. The cakes were outstanding; one huge slice between two was as much as we could eat. A truly charming place to be pampered and to... More

My husband booked us a table here as a little treat for our belated Pearl Wedding Anniversary (we were advised that Saturdays are always busy at All About Tea).

Popped into this delightful little tea shop, amazed at the range they had! I purchased teas for gifts, enjoyed a lovely pot of Portsmouth Tea with my daughter who had Apple and Mango and a tea cake. We will visit again

A speciality tea emporium that blends its own teas and is also a tea shop where you can drink a pot of whatever tea you fancy. It also serves delicious cakes and the process are more than reasonable. Highly recommended if you like tea.
