The 5 Best Places to drink Tea in Liverpool


The great English tradition of tea is enjoying a huge revival, and thanks to Liverpool's ever-expanding food & drink scene, Ladies and gents who lunch in the city are spoilt for choice on where to get their fine-brew fix. At Utility, we're partial to a little tea and cake of an afternoon, so we've sussed out five of the best teashops for when you just need to sit back, relax and indulge in the most quintessential of British drinks.


Between 65 and 67 Bold Street you’ll find Leaf, a stylish café with a boho-chic interior and a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Leaf offers over 60 lose-leaf teas, each of which can be enjoyed alongside a tasty selection of canapés, breakfast, brunch and lunch options.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
