My husband booked this for us at the last minute and glad that he did! Our friendly waiter Colin was attentive and informed us of the teas we might like, given our preferences. Great food, great service and the gluten-free sandwiches were also delicious.

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is

vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even

They do! I live in Florida, USA and I ended up buying more teas online and having it arrive two days after I came home from England. Pay attention to shipping deals or tea sales, as these can affect your price.
