Top Tea # 11: It’s My Bag, Man (Part Two) What's the time, Mister Wolf? Teatime…

Adam Writes… 

Part two of my teabag-on-a-string recommendation. So what’s my excuse this time?
It’s the cakes, dammit. The cakes!
The list of blue things that I would happily put in my mouth is a very short list indeed.
But at the top is the lurid blue icing at Candy Cakes on Monmouth Street.

It’s all in the colours at Candy Cakes. The restful retro green backdrop – may I call it Jolly Avocado? – is spiced with the wild patterns and colours of the tabletops. Good coffee and tea – Earl Grey for me again, Twinings once more – and, a personal fave this, they play BBC Radio 6 Music and when I was in last Friday they had Tom Waits on at full blast.
Tom Waits and Earl Grey tea: if you have yet to try the combination, is a mindblower.
Always a nice welcome, too. I love Candy Cakes. Weird thing happens in there, though. My trousers seem to get smaller at the waist. Hmmmm.
