Leeds needs a decent Tea Room, I don’t think I’m alone in thinking that. Not a Cafe or a Coffee shop that sells Tea as an after thought. But a good old fashioned place to enjoy a decent cup of (Leaf) Tea. With an endless, perhaps seasonal choice. And the mere mention of the word ‘Tea Bag’ is forbidden.
An independent Tea Room would be my personal favourite, where the staff share the same passion for leaf tea as the owner intended. With knowledge, recommendations and suggestions on which tea to try. Along with the very best customer service. It doesn’t have to be a high end luxury place, the Tea and service should speak for itself.
I’m not forgetting, of course, the cakes to accompany this wonderful tea. It should be the freshest possible and definitely homemade.
As we speak, I am drinking a very fine China Oolong Leaf Tea, which I’ve served at my Tea parties. I could drink this, along with some other Leaf teas all day long. It has an aromatic flavour, easy on the nose and the senses.
I confess to knowing very little about tea, yet I prefer to drink Leaf tea where possible. It quenches your thirst on both hot and cold days. I would love to know more about the different types, where it comes from, how it’s blended, if that’s the right word. I love to drink it.
I’m dreaming I know………….. but one day.
Taking the journey from the Tea Bushes in Ceylon to the liquid nectar in my cup would be quite something to see.

Perhaps we should create an alternative Tea Party purely for the promotion of Loose Leaf Tea.
