Tea Monkey Milton Keynes

Tea Monkey opened up in Milton Keynes this week and I've been wanting to go ever since I saw it was coming! It's nice to have something a bit different in MK because it's quite a commercialised place and you don't see a lot of unique businesses opening up. The actual 'shop' is lovely, they've not over crammed it with tables and chairs and with the modern decor it feels inviting and spacey, and it's in a great location opposite the tree! The staff were all happy and helpful (which after working in a shop for 3 years you really notice!) and the whole place had a great atmosphere!

...but too the good stuff! There were so many great teas on the menu and I couldn't decide for ages, but eventually went for a flowering tea because I've never tried one before. It had a nice delicate flavour, but the best part was obviously when the flower bloomed.

And of course you can't have tea with out cake so I went for the clotted cream and strawberry cheese cake, and I have to say it was one of the best I've had (and I eat a lot of cheesecake!). The clotted cream cheese part melted in your mouth and the strawberries were like an added bonus. My friend had a huge victoria sponge like cake and a different blooming tea, which were also amazing! I'm a big fan of different teas, so it's great to have a new place to stop and have a break while you're shopping up the city. I can't wait to go again and try my next one, I'd definitely urge any fellow Milton Keynesers to get down there and try something new!
