5 Places for Tea in London

Tea o´clock? Seek no longer. No doubt that the best tea comes from London, and you can smell it in every corner. Any tea you order is definitely different that the best one you can get outside of the U.K. In my last trip to the city beside the usual sightseeing, I had several cups of teas. I am a true believer that trying something typical from the country you are visiting is part of the experience. Bellow I listed some of my favourite places in London, each one is unique and very particular.

1- Biscuiteers
Located in the beautiful neightbourhood of Notting Hill, Biscuiteers originally started as a online business and quickly became well know for the quality of their biscuits. Later the opened this store where you can have tea. I´ve previously seen their work on social media, but I must say it was not on my list, but the decoration they have makes you curious. I love everything sweet and this was no exception. SO CUTE. The presentation says it all.
What? cut biscuits, of course! Look at the dog! (there are other things as well)
Where? 194 Kensington Park Road, Notting Hill

2-Sketch
One of the most original places in London that fuze's the best food with art. Yes, art is in every single place you lay your eyes on. It has a variety of rooms with different decorations, each very particular. The crockery is also artistic, even the food. Not to mention that it was delicious. If you are looking for an original place to have fun in the city centre, go to Sketch.
What? the afternoon tea with scones
Where? 9 Condiut Street

3-Farm Girl Café
Also in Notting Hill there´s a new place to eat that has it all. A good presentation, tasty flavours and healthy food, what else can you ask for? The aesthetic is rustic, and as you are probably thinking, natural. We went on a late morning on a weekend, and it was absolutely crowded. It may be new, but the gossips of the quality has already run.
What? tea, yougurt with granola and mom had the clasic gluten free toasts
Where? 59a Portobello Road

4-Lola's
All roads lead you to cupcakes. And it´s true, cupcakes rule the baking world, and in the U.K. the most populars belong to Lola´s. In less than ten years they´ve become a staple of the city. The best thing is that there are stores inside other stores, as in Selfridges or Topshop. They have a variety of fresh flavours. What´s more they had a vegan option and are all very visually attractive.
What? cookies and cream and vegan strawberry cupcakes
Where? Selfridges Foodhall (400 Oxford Street) and many more!

5-The Orangery
Our last stop is The Orangery at Kensington Gardens. Probably the most elegant of all the places. And I don´t if it´s due to the location or the presentation, but you will feel as a royal. It´s not all about the crockery because the food is fantastic. If have to tell you the truth, I´ve never had a yogurt and granola as good as this one.
What? the yogurt with granola and the clasic scones, with tea, of course.
Where? Kensignton Place in Kensinton Gardens
