While in London recently, we were wandering around our favorite neighborhood of Camden town when we came across the tea shop China Life.
This is a really interesting shop as they have your standard tea bar and sell loose-leaf teas and tea-related gadgets, but they also offer acupuncture, massage and related services.
With so many different teas available, there are lots of options to choose from when you’re ready to order at the tea bar. You can view it on their website here.
We both got milky teas (cold) and they were beyond excellent.
One that we ordered was the Silk Road, which you can find on their Signature Cocktails menu, and the other was a special of the day that included coconut and caramels flavors in the tea.
When your tea is served it comes with a little round yam cookie. While this type of cookie may not sound like the most appealing little treat to have with your tea, it was actually surprisingly tasty. They were so good, that I’m thinking about ordering some from their website and having them shipped to me back in the U.S.
If you are local, then this is a great place to shop for gifts for friends and family. Not only can you select from their available teas and blends, but you can make your own blends. They also have gift sets that you can buy for people who enjoy drinking tea. And, they have a nice collection of tea pots and related accessories.
