Description:   The Tea Shop Appreciation group was started in early 2015, and since then we have enjoyed a range of venues in the locality.


We meet during the Autumn, Winter and early spring months only as it seems a pity to be inside when the weather is good.


Hospitality is always good and we have been tempted by different beverages and delicious cakes and pastries.  Some of the venues offer a chance to look around, shop and take a walk. Mostly however we enjoy our conversations; getting to know new friends and sharing views and ideas.


If this appeals to you, please join our Group..

WHAT ARE TEA LEAVES?

Tea leaves are the cured leaves two different varieties of Camellia sinensis, a camellia native to Asia.


Chinese and Japanese teas use

Camellia sinensis var. sinensis.


Indian teas, except for Darjeeling,  use Camellia sinensis var. assamica.


TEA OR MILK IN FIRST?

Pouring the milk into the cup first and then adding the freshly brewed tea is said to minimise the effect of the heat

of the tea affecting the proteins in the

milk and hence its taste.


Others prefer to pour the milk in  afterwards as that makes it easier to add the desired amount of milk.
