Café W

Time for Tea Please?

It was a bit of a miserable day in Norwich today and what better way to cheer myself up than tea and cake!!!! So today I went to Café W, in Waterstones, on Castle Meadow, in Norwich City Centre. I know what you are thinking but who’d have thought a cafe in a bookstore, but I can tell you now it won’t disappoint 🙂

As a Tea lover there was never doubting my choice of drink, yet choosing a tea was harder than I thought it would be with around 15 different ones to choose. I loved there sample tray of loose leaf tea which meant as a customer you could see and smell the tea before choosing.

After being able to smell the teas which is a fantastic way to get a feel and therefore taste of the tea I chose to go for the Goji Berry and Pomegranate, oh and piece of red velvet cake.

The Tea

I love a pot of tea as it means I can brew the tea just the way I like it, particularly with the use of the special loose leaf teabags for Giants !

On pouring the tea it’s very fruity and refreshing the aroma is sweet yet just right and enticing the tastebuds. It’s fruitness was just perfect for a miserable day and a perfect boost to banish the rainy day blues. This tea is a grower as its gets stronger in flavour as the tea brews, I chose to leave the loose leaf in for the whole drinking experience. This allowed the flavour to deepen as well as the colour of the brew.

The Cake
So after my initial shock of finding such a great café in a bookstore there choice of cakes and sweet treats were amazing suit all tastes and dietary requirements.

After spending quite a while choosing the tea, it took me just as long to decide on my sweet treat!


Apart from its amazing colour I just couldn’t resist the Red Velvet Cake , which was also Vegan. The cake was just scrummy, not too sweet and not overly crumbly for vegan recipe and was a perfect match for my tea.

So if you are looking for somewhere different, with plenty of choice for everyone then Café W is the perfect choice for you 🙂
