The Tea Centre
Forget high-tea – trade it in for a rice-tea high. Japanese Genmacha tea lifts you up, up, up! Bancha leaves, tossed with pan-roasted rice puffs, sink to the bottom in a steaming kettle. The result is a smooth crisp nutty soup that swells in the depths of your belly. It’s well worth the trip into town to thaw your insides with the unique roasty flavours of a pure, yummy brew. They have a whole menu of oolongs, blacks, and whites that might also feed your fancy. Just a short walk from St James station.
