Waterloo Tea as a brand first welcomed guests in 2008, with a simple yet profound principle at its core — fostering a friendly and warm relationship between the teahouse and its customers. One of a few branches of Waterloo Tea, this establishment in Cardiff is well frequented by locals as the ultimate destination for indulging in the world's finest teas.

From classics like Waterloo Breakfast and Matcha to hidden gems like Sherbet Lemon and High Grade Peony, there's a tea to suit everyone’s tastes. Fruit and herbal varieties include elderflower berry, peppermint rooibos, tangerine ginger, and yerba mate. While all teas are available for purchase, sampling them in the teahouse allows you to discover your favourites firsthand.

Food is served until the afternoon, with a great choice of options. Treat yourself to warmed banana bread with espresso spread, granola with coconut, almond, and chocolate, or a brioche filled with Merguez sausage and fried egg. Mains cater to all tastes, with dishes like ras el hanout roasted cauliflower in a brioche bun with sriracha mayo and chermoula. For something a bit more filling, enjoy a Welsh rarebit made with leeks, smoked cheese and Yunnan tea, served with chutney and side salad. Black bean chilli on sourdough is also on the menu, with an avocado coconut cream and pickled red onions.

For a wonderfully British experience, indulge in Waterloo Tea’s afternoon tea, complete with both classic and vegan options. Savoury bites include cheddar and pickled red onion sandwiches, savoury scones with avocado, while sweet treats range from milk chocolate mousse with roasted hazelnut to apple and salted caramel macarons. And, of course, no afternoon tea is complete without freshly baked scones, clotted cream, jam, and your choice of tea.
