To help everyone at Tea “go there,” we make a yearly contribution to each employee for international travel and exploration. Upon their return, our Tea travelers write blog posts to share their adventures with all of us (and the world).
Isabelle, a Technical Designer at Tea, recently returned from a trip to London. She enjoys exploring new destinations, flowers, and her favorite dish, kale. When she’s not eating kale, she enjoys a pastries.
I have been to London twice before and knew that on my most recent trip that I didn’t want to see sights I have already seen. I also wanted my trip to be less about being a tourist and more about just relaxing and enjoying good food with good company. I found that just taking time to wander and discover a city without any pressure to do anything meant discovering fanciful things that make me smile. Here are a collection of things that delighted me on my trip.
The (Un)Birthday balloons that got away.
Parked petals in Notting Hill
More room for the local birds on Duncan Terrace Park.
We stumbled upon an art opening in East London one night. There were colorful characters there for sure.
Sky high sewing machines at All Saints Spitalfields.
Lost in the “Looking Glass” Bathroom at Nopi.
Rhubarb cakes at Ottolenghi.
My trip wouldn’t be complete without tea! And believe me, London knows and loves their tea. And, I love my (T)ea too!
