High Tea of Highgate

My recent transformation into tea drinker extraordinaire was officially celebrated with my caffeine loving family this weekend with a trip to High Tea of Highgate.

This tiny little place in the midst of the small boutiques and cafes in picturesque Highgate has the quaint and cute baby pink exterior and bunting typical of most tea shops these days. I’m a sucker for that kind of decor, I’d secretly deck my whole house in it if I thought I could get away with it. There’s something about vintage crockery that makes the whole act of tea drinking even more of an occasion, especially when it’s mismatched.

There’s nothing better than quintessential English tea and scones on a blustery Sunday afternoon, with milk from a milk jug and sugar cubes picked up with tongs. Don’t you agree?
