Arthur Probsthain is an independent family-run bookshop, established in 1903.
Specialising in books from and about, Africa, Asia and the Middle East, with a branch at the School of African and Oriental Studies.
My favorite places to visit are India and Turkey, so coming across this bookshop was a very happy discovery indeed.

Tea and Tattle tea room is a delightful find in this central location. Downstairs from the bookshop, it is beautifully decorated in traditional style; a civilised haven of calm.

A lovely oriental wallpaper frieze of storks taking flight with cherry blossom covers one wall, and there is a pleasing mis-match of furniture.

They offer and excellent range of teas. Taiwanese oolong, Japanese sencha, Kenyan fannings, Ceylon from Sri Lanka and Assam (India).
I thoroughly enjoyed my pot of Darjeeling. Served in a handsome Tea & Tattle teapot and vintage china cup and saucer it was welcome refreshment.

Tea and Tattle also offer afternoon tea, cakes and cream teas. I had an excellent freshly made hummus and red pepper sandwich with my tea. Service is efficient and polite.

Being opposite the British Museum, Tea and Tattle is a perfect place to take refreshments after exploring the treasures of the world.
