Bari Tea is an experience not just a cuppa. You choose your tea from their extensive range, it arrives in it's own individual pot with an egg timer. That's right, an egg timer. You MUST NOT pour until the timer has run out giving the chosen blend time to brew. They also serve hot chocolate with chocolate swizzle stick to... More

Staff friendly, tea superb, with both a brilliant choice and can take it home. Lovely surroundings and staff very knowledgeable on the teas on offer. Plus cakes are brilliant, can't praise enough.

A first time to Alnwick for half the party, we were eager to get lost in the magic of Hogwarts castle... however, due to seasonal closures we didn't step beyond the castle gate. Following this early disappointment we required a pick me up and luckily stumbled upon Bari Tea Brewery. Greeted with friendly service and a homely atmosphere, we enjoyed... More

A lovely place to relax and sample an array of teas. Delicious, homemade soup, scones and cakes. I can recommend the cauliflower & turmeric soup and also the cheese & mustard scones. Very friendly service. They certainly know their teas and how to brew them properly. Would highly recommend this café.

I regularly visit Bari to drink the fantastic teas, and to enjoy the yummy homemade vegetables soups and scones. If you want to drink high quality teas, brewed correctly this is the place to go. Caroline and her staff are very knowledgeable about their teas and will suggest the best one for you. Indeed, I now buy my favourite, Lovers... More

We stopped in here for a mid morning tea and cake - was lovely. The owner took the time to explain the fabulous range of teas on offer and made a recommendation based on what I told her - with the offer of changing it free of charge if I didn't like it. It was so good I bought some... More

Amazing range of teas and very good homemade scones. Interesting concept, with tea for sale along with teapots etc. for brewing. The tea is loose leaf and the lady serving clearly explained how to handle the brewing, along with an egg timer to ensure we left the leaves in for the right length of time.

We love tea and were delighted to find this place. It was lovely inside, staff super friendly and knowledgeable about tea, we enjoyed tea for two with scones and all the trimings, also bought some of their own tea. A very wonderful place to go back to next year....

I love this tea brewery. They have a wonderful selection of teas that never disappoint and the staff are always on hand to help you make a choice. The homemade food is excellent. All in all there is no place quite like it and everyone, in my humble opinion should visit it.
