"If you are cold, tea will warm you;
If you are too heated, it will cool you;
If you are depressed, it will cheer you;
If you are excited, it will calm you."
William Ewart Gladstone
Former British Prime Minister

Calling a tea room before visiting; a must for sure...!
Tea rooms are known for their ad-hoc opening behaviour, and we would strongly recommend that you call the tea room if you intend to take a drive, just to be sure that they are open and have decided not to take a day off...!
The Tiny Teapot
Biddenden
Two wasted visits to The Tiny Teapot in Biddenden; but we can confirm that is it temporarily closed until the new owners confirm the reopening dates. However, The Bakehouse right opposite is equally as nice but is not open on Sundays or Mondays.
Mad Hatter Tea Room,
Margate
We are sad learn that Peter has decided to close the Mad Hatter Tea Room in Margate, after many years. Peter has a new partner, and wishes spend more time enjoying life. We wish him well, although England will lose a great tea room, and a great tea room character. He will be sadly and deeply missed by all.
"Talk and tea is his specialty," said Giles. "He has about five cups of tea a day. But he works splendidly when we are looking."
-Agatha Christie, Sleeping Murder
"My dear, if you could give me a cup of tea to clear my muddle of a head I should better understand your affairs."
-Charles Dickens
