Liana’s Tea Shop served its first pot on August 13, with an opening ceremony featuring Havering Mayor Cllr Linda Van Den Hende and four other councillors.

Owner Jenny Thompson, who named the business after her middle name, told the Recorder: “I finally wanted to get my dream achieved.

“I wanted to do something different.”

And the tea room, beautifully set in Langtons House, Billet Lane, Hornchurch, has had a successful month, with lots of customers making advance bookings for September.

Jenny said: “When people walk in, it is a very relaxing atmosphere, just to come in and listen to vintage music, which isn’t over bearing.”

The shop is beautifully decorated, with floral cushions and vintage ribbons tying the jars holding the tea leaves.

The tea sold includes the classics of English breakfast and Earl Grey, as well as rarer fruit flavoured specialties and cinnamon chai flavours.

Jenny also serves sandwiches and homemade cakes, which are available in vegan and gluten free varieties.

“We also take donations for customers to be able to feed the ducks in the courtyard,” she added.
