Time Out says

This traditional tea supplier is home to a tea lounge that is perfect for an afternoon refreshment.

As far as tradition goes, London Tea Company is well set. Switzerland's oldest tea house, it has been supplying tea since 1896 and now stocks a vast range of home-mixed leaf teas and accessories. The tea lounge at the back of the shop on Spalenberg is a tranquil scene of low tables and bamboo, and an ideal retreat from a hectic afternoon. Here, the company’s tea expertise really comes to the fore. Tea is served at the perfect temperature to drink, and with an egg timer to show you how long to brew your bag or leaves for. For the sweet tooth, the tea lounge has a partnership with Konditorei-Confiserie Gilgen on the same street. You can choose any of their baked goods to enjoy with your cuppa.
