Orange Pekoe

One of my absolute favourite things to do is to end my working week by spending Friday afternoons at Orange Pekoe on White Hart Lane, where Barnes meets Mortlake. 'OP', as my beloved and I call it, is a beautiful tea salon where the emphasis is very much on excellent teas (one can choose from a whole wall of them), coffees (they will tell you which is best to revive you in the morning, and which is best for a mellow afternoon cup) salads & sandwiches, plus amazing cakes to trip up your diet intentions.. When I grew up in Oslo we used to refer to gems like Orange Pekoe as a 'konditori' - and they were always a treat.
