Tea Palace is located in a quiet area in Notting Hill. My first impression when I walked in was that it felt clinical and a bit empty. But after a short while it started sinking in, as I like modern, clutter-free, simplistic interiors that have this clean look about them. Tea Palace has that. The only minus is, that perhaps it feels a little bit too empty, thus unfriendly. I love the white-purple theme going on, the purple gives the house a bit more life. The simple but stylish design of their products is very much too my liking, although they are quite pricey. They offer about 150 different kinds of tea and you can also have lunch or dessert in a calm atmosphere. Afternoon Tea menus cost between 17£ and 23£ and they include various scones, cakes and sandwiches. I feel indifferent about the service, I have nothing negative nor positive to say. Overall Tea Palace is a nice, but if you’re not feeling rich today, it’s probably not the best place to go.
Tea Palace also sells tea timers – a really nice ones too, triple hour-glass measuring time for three tea types – black, green and white. It’s available at the tea house and the internet shop.
Address – 175 Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill, London
