Welcome to Camellia’s Teahouse…

Milk and two sugars takes on a much cooler, health-conscious twist, as we discovered at Camellia's Teahouse in Soho.

It was three minutes past ten, meaning I was three minutes late (as ever…) for my meeting at Camellia’s Teahouse in Soho. As the bus crawled another inch up the Strand, I began to wonder if I would ever get there in respectable time (and also if the lady sitting in front of me was wearing a toupee – yes, people, a toupee – but that’s entirely beside the point).

I hopped off the 23 on Regent Street, sauntered down the ever-charming Carnaby Street and after a few minutes of genuine confusion and cursing myself for not planning ahead better – my general view before visiting somewhere new is ‘hey, I don’t need to look at a map: I know the area, how hard can it be?’ - I finally found Camellia’s, nestled on the top floor of an outdoors shopping precinct.
