The Gilded Teapot

Our tea shop in Lymington

UPDATE: Tea lovers, we’ve a temporary shift to online only and will return for in-store and collections on May 4th after the bank holiday. Thank you!



Hello, tea lovers!

We are reopening on Monday April 12th! The front room of the shop will be open for safety and ventilation (the main room is off-limits for now) and we are running a click-and-collect service plus online orders as usual.

Tea Shop Opening Hours:

Monday – Wednesday 11.30am-4pm

The hours will be limited a bit until I’m fully vaccinated. Thanks so much for your understanding!










All good things must eventually come to an end. While this isn’t goodbye, it is with great sadness we say farewell to our Dorchester tea shop. We’ve been in the lovely old tobacconist’s for ten years (!) and, with many things being as they are, we have made the difficult decision not to renew the lease.

We shall continue on in beautiful Lymington in our adopted home of The New Forest. And our online shop is, as always, open all hours.

My deepest gratitude and thanks to you, tea lovers.

Jo, your tea merchant.
