At the weekend I finally got to pay a visit to the cute little tea house named The Olde Young Tea House. After stalking their Instagram account
for a couple of months and drooling over their daily bakes, I knew I had to get myself down there. Located in the heart of Middlesbrough town centre, me and my mum decided to take a visit to experience it for ourselves following their recent award win for the National Independent Shop of the Year.
As we arrived late lunch time on Saturday afternoon (around 2pm), the tea house was evidently busy but whilst we pondered over the delicious treats on the front counter and assessed the lunch board, we were soon taken to our table. I ordered a hot chocolate which arrived in a beautiful cup and saucer, accompanied by two large marshmallows and finished off with a squirt of cream. Whilst my mum ordered a tea for one which arrived with a tea pot containing at least four cups of tea!
Whilst we sipped our drinks and nattered about how cute the place was, our food arrived. I ordered a mozzarella, tomato and pesto bagel whilst my mum ordered a cheese and pickle bagel. Both plates were complete with a side salad with our pesto and pickle dips placed at the side of our bagels. The food was extremely fresh and really tasty.
Although we were both pretty full after our lunch, we couldn’t leave without getting a cake (after all, it was the main reason for visiting!). The specials of the day were Bounty cake, Diam Bar cake and popcorn cupcakes which looked incredible. I opted for the Diam Bar cake which was honestly one of the tastiest, most moist cakes I have ever tasted! And my mum got the Bounty cake which she was equally impressed with, especially as she’s not a great lover of chocolate cake.
All in all, me and my mum had a great day out trying this place out and it was worth the wait. The next time we visit we will probably skip the lunch and have twice as much cake!
