Juri's voted the UK's best tea place

Juri's The Olde Bakery Tea Shoppe in Winchcombe, Gloucestershire, has been named the UK's top tea place in this year's National Top Afternoon Tea Awards.

Now in its 23rd year, the accolade is granted by the Tea Guild, which is part of the UK Tea Council.

Juri's owners the Miyawaki family impressed the judges with their Japanese heritage and love for tea as well as their exceptional tea expertise and the quality of the homemade cakes and scones they offer.

Irene Gorman, head of the UK Tea Guild, said the café offers a truly special tea experience. "This attractive tearoom with its pretty outdoor terrace is a must for all tea lovers to visit," she said.

The awards also presented 55 tea rooms across the country with awards of excellence in recognition of their high standards.

A team of mystery tea inspectors visited venues and hotels across the country to find the best afternoon tea experience, testing them on criteria ranging from décor and crockery to the variety of teas available.

The Lanesborough hotel in London was revealed as the best place in the capital to have afternoon tea.
