Wilkin and Sons New Tea Shops

Wilkin and Son are expanding their tea shop offerings. I learnt around a month ago that they had taken over from my friend Jonathan at the Writtle Tea Rooms and I now read they have acquired a lease on a building right next to another Tea shop I have reviewed – the Art Cafe in Colchester.

Tiffanys and Writtle Tea Rooms battle it out

So the battle of the teashops is on.

The Essex Chronicle Food and Drink Awards have placed both of them in the Top 3 for best Tea Shop. You can find out more at http://www.thisistotalessex.co.uk/efda09publicvoting.html

I know that both Tea Shops know each other and there was even talk of Jon from Writtle Tea Rooms having a quick drink in Tiffanys recently (checking out the competition I reckon).

Best of luck to both of them. 8th October 2009 is the date we all find out.

UPDATE: Unfortunately neither of these Chelmsford Tea Rooms won. It went to a Stop The World in Leigh On Sea – http://www.thisistotalessex.co.uk/efda09winners09.html
