The Eteaket Tea Flight

Updated: May 21


This week is National Gardening Week running from 10th - 16th April 2017. You're maybe thinking what does tea have to do with gardening? Did you know there are tea gardens/plantations around the world? Each growing their own unique blend and strength of tea.

My love of tea has taken me around the world from a traditional tea ceremony in Japan to the traditional coca tea in Peru, South America.

The Eteaket Tea Flight

This week I didn't have far to travel, only into Edinburgh city centre, to discover The Eteaket Tea Flight.

Here's a little taster of what's included in the journey. Did I mention there is also chocolate? Yum!

Eteaket's Tea Journey

Eteaket's story started in Edinburgh back in 2005, with a love of loose leafed tea from around the world. Today you can enjoy a scrumptious afternoon tea at the Eteaket Tea Room on Fredrick Street and also purchase the many fragrant teas at the Eteaket shop which opened in November 2016 on Rose Street. You can also find everything you need to make that refreshing cup of tea!
