English Teashop

Hi There, just wondering if anyone knew of an English tea shop in Basel? you know the sort of typical English thing, where you can get a pot of English brand tea, and maybe some scones and jam!

Thanks

Not Basel but Zurich - British Cheese Centre in the Viadukt market can sell you great tea, scones, jam and cream.

(And more importantly beer)

(And cheese - obviously)

Another place to get British (and American) goods is "The Bookshop" in Zurich. http://www.books.ch/home/OrellFuessl...op-Z%C3%BCrich

Re: English Teashop

I think the OP was actually looking for somewhere to go and sit down and have afternoon tea - sans sarnies by the sounds of it.

Mmmm... sounds good... but not heard of any yet. Maybe the three kings hotel as it's a posh hotel? If you are after great tea to purchase, there is a specialist tea shop on Spalenberg.
I'll keep following this post in case anyone else knows of one. In the meantime, perhaps a pop up restaurant is in the making?

Afternoon tea

Just saw this post ... so it looks like my Three Kings guess was right!
