Want to make friends, then why not share a pot of beautiful fresh herb tea ! We have a range of fresh grown herbal teas to tantalise the palate and perk up the dulled senses .

Growing on our teashop terrace ,we can nip out and pick the freshest of tips for your pot of delight. Now you read before about the steamy sweaty camels and bedazzled camel drovers …so time for a new tale…

Run your fingers through the glossy stems of our fresh mints …what about the luscious chocolate peppermint ? Smooth  ,seductive and sensual.Rolls into your mouth like a melted After Eight.. The type of After Eight eaten in bed with a wanton lover..and melted on your pillow . The type of After Eight forgotten after a late dinner party but found lurking secretly in the box and eaten with subterfuge and secret glee.The type of After Eight slipped into a leather glove and carried away to a smugglers den where general carousing and making merry may be happening with riotous abandon.You know the type of scene- buxom,garralous serving wench,handsome highwayman with a swagger and a lascivious smile,all tight leather pants and a glint in his eye,and an accommodating dry cleaner.What about the charming rustic , all corduroy and sweaty singlet and a can of coke in his pocket ? Just ready for that advertising break.Or the handsome man of mystery, floral chemise,cravat and oh so  creased linen suit -dragged through a haystack with the boys and then took a ride on the hay wagon .

So we  too can be  the wild rovers of taste, the robin hoods  of  flavour and the buccaneers of  balm .We are the prairie tea queens !

We only serve Union coffee in our tea shop !

Exquisite coffee : Fairly Traded : Artisan Roasted

I feel like I am already in esteemed company as Michael Winner (the very same )deemed such coffee to be historic in his Sunday Times Column this week. We serve a wonderful blend called Revelation which is a Union of coffees from Central America, East Africa and Indonesia. I could talk about deep aromas , caramel notes and hints of wild fruits.. a symphony of flavours soaring through the taste buds but I wont ! at the risk of sounding just the tiniest bit pretentious….

Enjoy a generous mug full of rich roasted coffee expertly brewed by the fair hand of my mum Pat or the unfair hand of Pauline and Paul and you could be in heaven . Coupled with the stonking big garden and a delicious wedge  of homemade cake who could ask for more !! Fresh herbal teas are also on the menu if coffee is not your bag ! or the scrumptuous Rowdy and Fancy’s artisan hot chocolate melts .

Silly summers at our Tea and coffee-house start right here, right now  !

Curly, Wills and Curly's Brother
Curly,Wills and Curly’s Brother

at all lost or wandering ! they were well behaved in their assigned field (for once)and very very pleased to see me . There are some new kids getting friendly (and friendly, Paul, means they dont get eaten right ?!) let me introduce you to the fearless and patchworked Mask . A gauky lamb from this year  with very long legs and the kind of sheep that would be a super model if she could. Then there is the cutest chunky Chocolat (said in french accent) and I am talking 75% colour of chocolate … she has the sharpest little hooves imaginable and gives you a very good hoof massage on the back ! the old faithfuls ,Birsay (tail wags like dog when stroked)and Barra (paws at you with her hoof for attention) are still wonderful and prima donnas to a tee  .. in fact the whole troupe will be featured in the very rare and hitherto unseen and untried art cinema for sheep entitled  “When Sheep Dare” .. which is to be filmed by Victoria on her forthcoming visit.watch this space ! It is incredible the social circles in which one moves when in deepest darkest sussex.
