Fancy a proper cup of tea, in a proper china cup in a proper Tea shop?
Me too. So, with my creative ma and pa, we visited this FANTASTIC teashop in the heart of Brighton's Kemp Town.
'To The Tea Cosy, the eccentric, delightful and quirky Tea Room based in Brighton, known for its Royal Family and British memorabilia.
The Tea Cosy offers delicious home-made Cream Teas, Cakes, Scones, High Teas, Finger Sandwiches, Chutney, Piccalilli, Preserves, an extensive Tea menu, and much more!'
It is everything I've ever wanted from a teashop...The Royal Family, Union Jacks, British Memorabilia, every type of tea in existence, higgle-de-piggle-de mish-mash of tea cups, saucers, tea pots, sugar cubes, silver spoons, shabby chic table clothes, stools, chairs, sofas, and Home- Made Tea cosys all crammed into a tiny little shop.
This shop alone makes me want to set up a tea shop even more than ever. It has certainly inspired me to design more stuff that celebrates wonderful British customs.
