What a lovely Autumn day! Perfect for a little wander along my favourite bit of London to peruse the Tea and Coffee Festival... I'm not sure how many years the festival has been going for, but this was the first year I'd heard about it. It was lovely - if a little bijou - and perfect for a sunny Saturday lunchtime stroll.
The first thing I did was treat myself to a gingerbread hot chocolate from Jaz and Jules, which was absolutely delicious - not too sickly either, despite the marshmallow topping I couldn't resist.
There were plenty of cakes on offer!
As well as tea paraphernalia...
I was intrigued by these Chaboba bubble teas - originating from Taiwan, they contain tapioca pearls at the bottom of the cup, which flavour the tea and can be eaten afterwards.
There were a few great lunch-on-the-go options available too. I had a grilled halloumi, tzatziki, rocket, chorizo and chilli ciabatta, which was amazing and very filling for just a fiver.
Meanwhile, O went for a spicy lamb flatbread from The Community Kitchen.
Next door to The Community Kitchen stand was La Marmotte, selling the pongiest cheese, lardons, potato and onion concoction I've ever smelt...it looked amazing, but possibly contained a week's fat allowance in one cheesy bowl, so we resisted.
And we couldn't resist taking home one of these tea bowls from Comins Tea House...
