Tea House at the Harlequin Cafe
There are few places in Somerset where you can find an extensive variety of teas from around the world, so we have sought out a selection of the best!The individual tea companies we have sought out each have fascinating - and very different stories to tell - but all share the same passion for quality. From British growers Tregothnan, to Comins Tea who scour the globe for the finest leaves, there is something for available for every palette.
We are sure you are going to love trying our fantastic new flavours, but rest assured we still serve the finest organic coffee if you are after a caffeinated fix! In the meantime, we have introduce a few of our favourites below...

Relax, with fine loose leaf teas from Comins.
Together, they travel the world to source fine single estate and single origin loose leaf teas. There is a huge focus on the quality and provenance; they choose not to blend or add to their teas - but to focus on the amazing natural flavours from the pure leaf.
No one inspires us to relax with a mug-full as much as Michelle Comins. Together we have selected a wide spectrum of flavours for the new Tea House - whether you are after a Malty Assam at breakfast, a bright first flush darjeeling in the afternoon or a calming Japanese Sencha Karigane green tea to end the day.
Locally grown in Cornwall, Tregothnan began supplying England's first and only tea in 2005.Tea bushes thrive on the Cornish estate, allowing Jonothan and his team to harvest an extensive array of delicious teas. We recommend trying their unusual take on a traditional Earl Grey - blended with the finest Assam and Citrus Bergamia.
Home to the Boscawen family, the private farming and gardening estate of Tregothnan has persevered in pioneering botanical firsts since 1334. The cool climate allows the plants to thrive - so much so that their English tea has been heralded as the 'new Darjeeling'.
Today the range includes four black teas, one green and a growing range of delicious herbal infusions - including a Manuka blend unique to Tregothnan.
