Postcard Tea - a shop to write home about

It's not known as 'London's Finest Tea Store' for nothing - as in the case of those who consume this particular beverage, they will find none better. One of the unique features about this particular shop is actually in its name - Postcard Teas.

You'll find this shop in the heart of Mayfair - and this prestigious address is apt for such a prestigious seller of the famous brew - a tea selling shop sitting nicely in between the pretty galleries and high end clothes shops around.

Now, back to the name - Postcard Teas has a really nice idea - Tea Mail - you select the tea (from an extensive range sourced from all over the world by the owner and renowned tea expert Timothy D'Offay) - it could even be possible to try it before you decide to commit - write a postcard selected again from a selection in the shop, then they send it from a special postbox to any location in the world - such a nice gift for tea lovers.

As well as this, there is so much more to the shop - they have regular events and exhibitions, a tea school on Saturdays, with a program of changing lessons and lectures for those keen on the history and art of tea. The most interesting for me are the amazing demonstrations they bring into the shop, including specialist tea caddy makers, and traditional tea ceremonies from places as far away as Japan.

So, for a real tea experience, go along to Postcard teas - and why not send your nearest and dearest a postcard by Tea Mail, to allow them the chance to share in your experience?
