Leaf Tea Bar
Tea and scones may go together like grannies and girdles but that hasn't stopped this 'punk' Liverpool tea room from forging a rather more modern medley for its clientele. It offers 24 loose-leaf teas alongside late-night DJ sets, Wi-Fi and wine. Popular with a pre- and postgig crowd and visitors to local art shows, Leaf also runs regular tea tastings.
