Tea is a fascinating subject and we, Lynn and Christian, a born-and-bred English couple who live in Stuttgart since 2004 are passionate about it! For the English Tearoom in Stuttgart's Heusteigviertel we have selected around 60 of our favourite loose leaf teas from the best tea gardens in the world.
In the English Tearoom you will find everything you need to make the perfect brew, from the simple filter bag to the state of the art kettles which heat the water to the correct temperature for the type of tea you are brewing. You will also find books about tea, a wide range of teapots and cups, some typically English teaware, some unique hand-made ceramics and of course a delicious range of British confectionary and biscuits. Our teas are beautifully packaged, and together with our china and confectionary items make perfect gifts which we are happy to wrap and have delivered for you.
Before we embarked on our tea journey we lacked the basic knowledge and equipment to enjoy tea to its full potential. We didn’t know how amazing tea can taste, how good it is for your health, and most importantly, how great drinking a carefully prepared cup of tea can make you feel. Now that we are enlightened we would be delighted to act as a guide on your personal journey through the world of tea. You can come and talk to us in the shop, order 10g samples online or come join us in a small group of other people keen to learn about tea at one of our seminars.
Our Tea Philosophy
Above all, we believe that tea should be fun! Our passion is for traditionally produced, pure (orthodox) tea! Due to changing weather conditions the flavour and quality of orthodox teas varies from harvest to harvest. As we only include the best teas we can find in our selection, the teas you will find on our shelves or in our online shop might be different the next time you look. Where a tea you might have bought before is missing or has been replaced by a tea from a different tea garden, that is probably because we are waiting for the new harvest or have found a superior quality that we want to share with you. Our traditional English and Irish Breakfast, Earl Grey, Afternoon Tea and other blends, which we have made especially for us, always taste the same and remain consistent in both quality and flavour.
Our Online Shop
A good year after opening The English Tearoom in Stuttgart’s Heusteigviertel we proudly opened the door to our Online Shop. Keen to keep to our values of providing friendly, accurate and honest advice, educate about tea and only sell teas and products that we believe in, the selection we offer online is just a taste of what we offer in our Stuttgart boutique. It comprises some of our personal favourites and best-selling items and we are delighted to share these with you. If you are searching for a tea or product which does not appear online then please contact us; if we can help, we will, and if we have what your are looking for in our Stuttgart boutique we would be delighted to send it to you.
We don’t believe that good tea should be unaffordable but we do believe in buying the best quality we can find, even if that means we pay more. We also constantly seek out rare and unusual teas. Although these come at a premium, when they taste great, we buy them, and although they can be expensive, we are happy to share these with you. Where possible, for example with our blends where we can control the production process or with teas where we can buy large amounts at better prices because supply is plentiful, we offer discounts or even 250g for the price of 200g.
If you would like to know more please send us a mail, call by or phone us – we look forward to meeting you!
