The 9th century Chinese poet Lu Tong once said ‘I am in no way interested in immortality, but only in the taste of tea.’
From this, we can deduce two things. Firstly, old Lu Tong was quite a strange cove.
Secondly, we suspect that he would have loved today’s Big Deal with the Cup Tea Room on Byres Road or Cup Tea Lounge on Renfield Street.
The offer comes in two tasty varieties. Option one is for two people to have morning tea at either of the Cup venues along with a pouch of Cup’s signature tea blend to take home.
Option two is the same as option one except it also includes four delicious cupcakes of your choice to take away along with the pouch of signature tea.
Award of Excellence
The original Cup Tea Room on Byres Road is a bustling, friendly spot which has long been a hit with 5pm customers. The more recent Cup Tea Lounge in the city centre is just as welcoming and features a stunning Victorian interior.
Both venues are flying high. The stylish Cup Tea Lounge in the city centre was a finalist in the Best New Restaurant category at last year’s Glasgow Restaurant Awards while Cup Tea Room recently won an Award of Excellence from the UK Tea Guild.
Three tier cake stand
Morning tea at the Cup venues is something quite special. Accompanied by a pot of Early Grey or Cup’s Breakfast Blend, your morning tea for two will be served on a three tier cake stand.
Starting with the bottom tier, guests will feast on mini-bagels with Lapsang Souchong hot-smoked salmon; bacon mini-sliders and corn bread.
The middle tier holds tempting mini-Danish pastries and freshly baked mini-plain and tea-infused scones.
Crowning the tiers is a selection of fruit skewers along with granola and yoghurt shots.
That, my friends, is the breakfast of champions!
Cupcakes to take home
As we mentioned, option one means that you will go home with a pouch of Cup’s signature tea blend.
Option two means that you can also take home four scrumptious cupcakes from Cup’s ever expanding range of cakey loveliness.
The choice of cupcake is all yours.
Perfect for a chat
This offer would be brilliant for a catch-up with a friend or as a gift. If you have a chum or family member who would enjoy a treat then this morning tea deal at the popular Cup venues would make a very welcome present.
Both the Cup venues have attracted lots of enthusiastic reviews to their 5pm Restaurant entries. This is what one recent visitor thought of her visit to Cup on Byres Road:
‘Cuptastic! We had such a lovely morning tea! The cosy wee shop has superb staff and the morning tea didn’t disappoint. We can’t wait to go back!’ Rating 5/5
