When in Glasgow, my friend Laurie took me to so many lovely places (thanks matey!!!!). One was Tchai Ovna, a great wee tea house hidden away in the West End. It has a great atmosphere – all mismatching furniture and cosy nooks and crannies – that is 100% genuine. Its not trying to be ramshackle and bohemian – it really is. We had biscuits, baclava and cherry tea – but the ultimate was Laurie’s Faery Blood tea. So full of flavour and tasty tasty. I usually insist on builders tea – Tetley, with milk and sugar, and drinking tea any other way feel very hippy dippy – but here I didn’t mind a bit. Even if it did cause the demise of Tinkerbell.
