There is a chain of tea shops that I kinda like, they are called Bird & Blend Tea Co.. When I first noticed them I didn’t realize they were a chain. I had recently moved to the UK and my wife was studying in Angel while we were in an Airbnb in the Isle of Dogs. That flat didn’t even had a table or chairs, so every morning, I’d leave the flat with her and go towards Angel together. There in Angel, I’ve found one of my favorite places in all of London, Camden Passage, which is a little collection of streets an alleyways full of cozy coffee and tea shops (and other shops and pubs). The first coffee shop that felt like home was there — six degrees — and so was the first tea shop, Bird & Blend.
