THE TEA LOUNGE: Experience the World of Tea

Written by Local Flavour

Michelle Pierce Hamilton,
Tea Sommelier
& Certified Nutritionist

Every sip and taste should be an experience that delights your senses while creating space for connection, health, and gratitude. The Tea Lounge believes taste and quality go hand-in-cup; that tea and food are best enjoyed when both are exceptional, ethical, and conscious of mother earth. Owner Michelle Pierce Hamilton is also the founder of beTeas (est. 2012), London’s specially curated tea brand of ethically sourced fine teas from around the world.

The Scene

Nestled on the edge of downtown just east of Richmond Row, this boutique tea shoppe and café welcomes visitors with a beautiful ambiance that emanates calm. Choose from outdoor or indoor seating, a café table, central lounge or the ‘tea meditation’ nook.

Order lunch or gourmet soup and fresh scones from the regular menu, or pre-book a special Mini Afternoon Tea for 2 (72 hours’ notice – book online).
A Sommelier-selected Tea Flight Experience is a perfect activity to enjoy after lunch, elegantly served in wine glasses with a guided tasting card.
