Polly's Tea Room

I have had tea at Polly's five times over the past two weeks, I think.  We stopped this afternoon and I took a couple of photos.  None of them turned out all that great but here's a the view from our table - complete with the flapjack and brownie Matt and I shared.  There's something a little odd about Polly's but I can't exactly put my finger on it.  The tea is good, though - especially the new Earl Grey they're using because it's strangely sweet and I like my tea like my men...sweet - and it beats always going to Cafe Nero, Starbucks or Costa. 


I'm finally branching out a bit when it comes to tea.  I've found that if I have a cup of Earl Grey near bedtime I have terrible heartburn.  At that hour I really should be going for a nice decaffeinated fruit tea or something but I 'm going to try English Breakfast (because, I will admit, I like to have a couple of digestive biscuits with my last cup).  If anyone has a tea suggestions - teas that aren't terribly strong, that is - I'd love to hear them! 


  1. Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Tea - yum! Add a little honey and milk and it's perfect b4 bedtime :o)
    Green Tea with Jasmine is another fav of mine.

  2. Ok, you need to tell me more about this flapjack thing - when I say "flapjack" I think it's just a funny way to say "pancake". but that is no pancake and it looks fantastic. I know you said you found some recipes online - i need a linky pleasey! or, you know, a full blog post on it would also be swell!
