I didn't know about this place until I did some research into loose leaf tea stockists near me. They do a good variety of tea and staff are knowledgeable about which would be best for my tastes. I havent yet had the food but I'll certainly be back to try it!

Happened across this tea shop during a bike ride. It certainly relaxed our sore muscles with its nice folksy / hippy-ish atmosphere. The ladies running it were very welcoming and helpful. Although food serving was relaxed to the point of a bit slow we had a good salad, soup of the day and various fruit and tea drinks. No complaints... More

Really enjoyed my first visit here today. I had a cappuccino and a slice of carrot cake which I very much enjoyed! My friend enjoyed a flavoured tea and cake. Lovely atmosphere and very friendly staff - would definitely recommend.

Have been to the Mystery tea house several times over the years with various friends. My most recent visit was about 3 weeks ago. It's always a relaxing place to be. The tea selection is excellent, the food is lovely, fresh and tasty. And the staff are so friendly and welcoming!

Thank Amy R
