Henry Fielding wrote that ‘love and scandal are the best sweeteners of tea’.
Regrettably, you will have to provide your own love and scandal but today’s Big Deal can supply fine tea and much more besides.
Tea in the afternoon
Today’s Big Deal is for two people to enjoy spectacular loose leaf tea and a gorgeous cupcake each at the popular Cup Tea Room on Byres Road or the new and rather plush Cup Tea Lounge on Renfield Street.
Once you have taken your last sip of tea; scooped the cupcake crumbs from your plate and swapped the final piece of gossip, the cheery staff will send you on your way with plump, hand baked scones and a tin of their Signature Hand Blended Tea.
Both Cup Tea Room in the West End and the new Cup Tea Lounge in the city centre are big hits with 5pm users who appreciate their top quality loose leaf teas, scrumptious cakes and welcoming interiors.
Cup Tea Room and Cup Tea Lounge source their loose leaf teas from the Tea Palace in London’s Covent Garden.
From Royal Oolong to White Monkey green tea via Darjeeling first flush, they have dozens to choose from.
If you like tea, cake and a natter then this is the ideal way to meet or treat your friends.
