Celebrate with Tea on Regent Street

Come to Regent Street, enjoy the purple coronation flags and experience the British tradition of afternoon tea in celebration of the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation, or just to celebrate afternoon tea itself, which has been around for a hundred and seventy three years.

Regent Street, London W1 is one of the best locations to enjoy a nice cup of tea. The ritual of taking tea was originated in the 1840s amongst the wealthy classes in England. Nowadays it is reasonable to suggest that almost everyone enjoys at least one cup of tea during the day.  At 7.30am each morning The Queen is woken with her first cup of tea of the day.

The Palm Court at Langham London has been serving afternoon tea since 1865. You can choose from The Wonderland Afternoon Tea, Asprey Diamond Jubilee Afternoon Tea or the 1865 Langham High Tea.

Along Regent Street there are plenty of opportunities to buy a fantastic selection of teas. The East India Company sells an eclectic mix of tea blends, the Chakra Intuition Herbal Infusion sits alongside the Assam, Orange Pekoe, Darjeeling, Ceylon, and Earl Grey. They also have Royal Breakfast, Director’s Blend and the Boston Tea Party Tea Caddy. Wholefoods on Glasshouse Street also stock a wide selection of teas, reviving and calming, both ends of the tea scale.

Alternatively, if you want to enjoy a classic afternoon tea, the recently reopened Café Royal has a splendid tea room and patisserie where you can watch the world on Regent Street go by.  For an al fresco teatime, visit the Soho Sky Terrace at The Courthouse Doubletree Hotel on Great Marlborough Street, or for an alternative bohemian tea experience, Sketch serves their afternoon tea in mismatched china tea cups.

On Heddon Street, one of Regent Street’s two food quarters, in an oasis of pedestrianised calm, there are a selection of restaurants including Momo who offer a more exotic Moroccan Tea, whilst French restaurant Aubaine serves a blend of tea with a French twist.

Brasserie Zédel, on Sherwood Street, offers an informal Parisian café atmosphere.  Their street level ZL Café, offers traditional teas alongside delicious French Patisseries such as Tarte au Citron or a Millefeuille à la Vanille.
