One of the things I adore about now working in Camden, is how diverse the shops are there. You can literally buy anything along the strip from Mornington Crescent to Chalk Farm, and as an avid herbal tea enthusiast, I was pleased when one of my colleagues suggested Mei Leaf Tea. After an incredibly stressful week personally, my usual poison of store bought camomile just wasn’t cutting it, so I decided to take a lunch break adventure to Mei Leaf to see if I could get something to help me, in so many words, calm my tits.
Not only was I pleasantly surprised at how reasonable all of the tea blends were to actually buy, but I also didn’t realise there was a small tea room in the back of the store. As a busy marketing executive, it feels like I have to spend a lot of my day being ‘on’, and the Mei Leaf Tea room was a very welcome sanctuary from everyday life. I chose to have a cup of the perfect calm tea to drink in.
By no means do I consider myself a tea expert, but I do know a bit, and I have to say the pure calm blend is more or less the most calm I’ve felt from a cup of tea ever. I’d highly recommend popping in if you have a busy day in Camden.
While I was there, I also picked up some tea called the ‘Flying Monk’. This one is meant to ‘lift’ your mood, and trust me it really did. I am now a fully-fledged tea convert, and aim to learn as much about it all as possible, but they are so friendly in Mei Leaf there is no doubt I soon will.
