Hi everyone..long time no see! I started a new blog, about fun,non-touristy things to do in Newcastle Upon Tyne:
Check it out an show it some love! :) My first post if for all tea lovers, as I go on discovering the perfect place to enjoy a tasty cuppa. Here’s a little sneak peek:
Tea Sutra Teahouse, 1st Floor 2 Leazes Park Rd
I’m really excited about this place because I “discovered” it only a few days ago and I fell in love! Here’s why…
Tea Sutra is the ultimate tea heaven – with an ‘Oriental’ twist! It’s a tea house, so expect an amazing choice of tea – they serve over 100 teas and infusions (plus a selection of vegeterian, gluten-free snacks to go with it)! Interestingly, Tea Sutra also offers wellness therapies such as acupuncture, hot and cold stone massage and reiki, so it’s a bit like a spa and tea house in one!
Even though Tea Sutra is in a central location, I felt like I left the everyday hustle and bustle behind the moment I walked through their door. Everything about this place is relaxing and soothing – the light, specious, Japan-inspired decor; the subtle music, comfortable cushions…and the amazing smell of tea filling up the entire floor! It might sound like a weird comparison, but the peaceful, almost meditative atmosphere remained me a bit of a yoga studio.
It took me a while to decide, but I eventually ordered Persian tea (£2.70) – which is black tea with flowers and spices. Tea Sutra has a nice selections of books and magazines, so I was sipping my tea while reading haiku – how relaxing!
