Way To Pass A Rainy Scottish Day

where to get high tea in edinburgh


Edinburgh: where to get cream tea, high tea, or just tea.

It’s well into June now and Scotland continues to be inundated with rain. Another cold, relentlessly drizzling Saturday. What to do?

I wrap up against the wet and make my way through Old Town and over the bridge to eteaket on Frederick Street.

This cozy basement tea house serves a good selection of loose leaf teas, which come with an hourglass timer to make sure your tea is perfect. They also offer a delicious cream tea and afternoon tea, if you are looking to go into a carb coma. They sometimes run out of scones, so if you are wanting cream tea, don’t dawdle.
