Tuesday Tea Tasting
Have you been to any of the factory outlets in Hackney? For cheap Burberry, Pringle or Nike, fashion lovers can head to Hackney Walk for amazing bargains...and we all know shopping is thirsty work! So for a pause in your perusing, head to Brew For Two - a cute little yellow-fronted tearoom tucked among the famous stores. It's full of lovely tiled tables and vintage crockery, perfect for all the bargain-hunting tourists looking for a classic British tea sipping experience.
They serve Char of Winchester tea - a new find for me! I tried the Char Darjeeling Supreme - the champagne of teas (well if you have just bought a Burberry trench coat then you deserve the best cuppa too!) It was quite a strong brew but fresh without milk, and then lovely with a drop of the white stuff after it had stewed a little too long.
