The Art of Tea Manchester

The Art of Tea – Tea, books & music in one!

The Art of Tea is a lovely mix of cafe, bar and bookshop. It’s the perfect place to spend Sunday afternoons sampling their range of loose leaf teas. Their chai is a personal favourite. If we’re having a sunny spell, I like to take a seat outside on their terrace, which is a great spot for people-watching. Or if we’re having a classic Manchester shower, I curl up on their cosy sofa with a cup of coffee and a yummy slice of cake. They serve food pretty much all day as well.

There is free wifi, which makes it a great place to get a bit of work done. When I need a break, I browse for second-hand treasure in the adjoining Didsbury Village Bookshop. They have a great collection of Penguin paperback classics with their original bright orange covers, which I find difficult not to buy.

I like to pop down to the Art of Tea in the evenings too, as they have a good selection of beer and wine, and there’s usually something going on. They host regular open mics, band nights and exhibitions from local artists. What more could you need?
