Great tea shop, particularly those attracted to the historical significance of the brand, and well situated in London's west end - particularly in the Leicester Square and Covent Garden areas. Excellent selection of good teas, sweets, and tea accessories for family, friends, or just yourself.

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
