The Tea Box, a specialist tea house situated south of the River Thames in the heart of historic Richmond-upon-Thames, boasts one of the finest ranges of international loose leaf teas in London.

Rare teas sit alongside popular brews as well as a range of amazing house blends, including a selection of alcoholic Tipsy Tea Cocktails and Frootea fruit juice and tea blends (both iced and hot). This boutique style venue adorned with huge chandeliers and tea canisters lining the wall offers homemade food, alcohol and wide range of beverages in an intimate relaxed haven set away from the bustle of the high street. Look out too for the ever-expanding range of artisan scones, ranging from the Bakewell (cherry and almond) to the Raj (carrot, curry and coriander) scone, as well as tea-based foods such as Moroccan Mint ice sorbet, tea smoked egg salad & homemade soup.

Whether you are after a mid-week treat or an intimate celebration with a glass of champagne, The Tea Box afternoon tea and high tea is sure to satisfy the most voracious appetite. If your companion isn?t a tea freak but you are, you can be assured they will be served only the best freshly-ground Monmouth coffee. This charming tea house can also host your own celebratory afternoon tea party with a venue hire option. Please enquire with the venue for more details.

Fancy an afternoon or high tea at night with a difference? The Tea Box provides the perfect atmosphere with a range of events including jazz, poetry, storytelling and opera to entertain you.

    A place to return to again and again with a welcoming cosy ambience, HUGE selection of teas and cakes and sandwiches, whether for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea. With a friendly welcome and relaxed atmosphere, a great place for a nice long chat with your dearest friends and family.

    Had a lovely afternoon champagne tea. Quirky tea room, fantastic food (we couldn't finish it all, doggy bag supplied) and nice friendly staff. Huge variety of teas, the White Peony and Rose is delicious. Highly recommend.

    Staff were very nice but the tea was pretty basic, nothing special considering the price

    It is always a pleasure to go there. The environment and atmosphere are so relaxing you would never stand up and leave. This time a sweet lady who waited our table was more generous than ever in helping us what tea to choose, what best cake combo etc. She was impeccable and professional and so down to earth at the same time. We thank you her!!

    Wonderful tea selection however food wise one of the worst afternoon teas I have ever had. Very limited food range. Scones didn't taste like scones. lemon cake was nice but the brownie was very avarage. It wasn't what I expected especially for the price paid.

    A very enjoyable afternoon tea. I went there with two friends to discuss putting a hen party together for my cousin for which we are all bridesmaids. We were able to stay after we had almost finished our tea and crack out our laptop to put our plans together without any problems.

    The waitress was extremely friendly and helped us in choosing which teas we may enjoy the most.

    The amount of food included was just enough so you didn't end up feeling uncomfortably full! They were also able to cater to my dietary requirements of a gluten free products, which were very tasty.

    Lovely atmosphere and a very enjoyable afternoon. Not bad value for money, would definitely recommend to give it a go!

    From beginning to end the service [@] (the owner) offered was superb. Nothing was too much trouble. On the day of my 60th birthday tea, she was 2 staff down. You would not have known. we were looked after and lacked for nothing. This was even with other customers coming in and needed serving too. I would recommend afternoon tea at the tea box for every day or for special occasions. A lovely place staffed by lovely peole who care about the service they offer.
