The owners of Peacocks tearoom in Ely collect teas from around the world as others would souvenirs, according to Tonia. 'The menu is always changing but includes everything from builders brew, to a rare and delicate Birmanie wild tea from Burma. Classics such as a fragrant rose petal tea seem to taste even better sipped from vintage china in the tearoom's lovely garden. Scones are served warm alongside'.
