A couple of steps from Trafalgar Square you can enjoy a cup of tea in elegant surroundings evocative of 19th century Paris.
The interior of Brasserie Les Deux Salons is beautiful, with its dark wood panelling, long copper topped bar and black and white mosaic floor.
The bar area, where you can take tea, has a delightful mismatch of padded chairs and little sofas upholstered with carpet.
A choice of teas include Assam, Darjeeling and a green mulberry a ‘dark roasted hojicha from Mr Obayashi tea who makes tea for the emperor of Japan’.
I had a wonderfully delicate and refreshing Ancient White from Mannong Village in SW China served in a lovely silver pot.
With tea starting at £3.25, maybe not an everyday cuppa, but well worth it for fine leaf-tea in style.
A perfect spot to escape the bustle of central London.
