Pukka Vanilla Chai at Pretty Cuppa  - Brick Lane, London

A quiet escape from the super busy Brick Lane, I joined my friend (who is just as mad about tea) for a lovely cuppa in Pretty Cuppa. Obviously I was caught by the name, and drawn inside by the teapots and teacups. While my friend sipped an Earl Grey, I tried Pukka's Vanilla Chai - it's caffeine free and has a delicate, sweet flavour. I normally add milk to chai but it was so light I decided not to. Described as ‘a fairly-traded magic carpet of sweet organic vanilla tingling with cinnamon and ginger' I would recommend but don't let it brew too long or the vanilla becomes lost. (My fault for talking to much and forgetting to top up my cup!)
