Babu Bombay Street Kitchen, 186 West Regent Street, Glasgow City Centre

Rocco G popped in for breakfast, which he washed down "with a lovely milky and rich chai tea. It was sweet, spicy and delicious."

Cup Tea Lounge, 71 Renfield Street, Glasgow City Centre

Nicola C's "teapot of Assam came with a timer, something I've never encountered during afternoon tea before! The waitress explained that it counts down until your tea has brewed. This was a really nice touch and my tea tasted great! (Lesson learnt! Never again will I be hasty with my tea pouring!) Brewing time varies from tea to tea and there are a great selection of teas on offer, including iced varieties."

Cushion & Cake, 35 Old Dumbarton Road, Glasgow West End

Alison M "opted for apple spiced fruit tea and a slice of apple & cinnamon cake - I have to say both the tea and the cake put a big smile on my face and made me feel all warm and fuzzy."

Deli 1901, 11 Skirving Street, Glasgow South Side

Raving that "they probably do the best chai latte I've had in the UK to date," Paige K also loves that "it's not so sickeningly sweet and has nice flavour. Along with it, their shortbread was buttery goodness."

Little Botanica, 741 Pollokshaws Road, Glasgow South Side

"The sandwiches are freshly prepared to order and the loose-leaf tea they sell is fantastic - I bought the Earl Grey and can honestly say it's the nicest Earl Grey I've ever tasted," says Jennie H.

McCune Smith, 3-5 Duke Street, Glasgow East End

Of course you can have tea if you're sitting in, but Trudie M also loves the "cool selection of tea and coffee to buy!"

Riverhill Coffee Bar, 24 Gordon Street, Glasgow City Centre

"I really loved their Earl Grey tea. They use a really nice loose leaf tea blend that took quite a while to steep, but gave a very lovely bergamot flavor," raves Laura Kate S.

Tempo Tea Bar, 83 Queen Street, Glasgow City Centre

"Bubble tea is nothing to be scared of! It's delicious and similar to a smoothie or milkshake with the addition of some tasty jelly bubbles!" Nicola C loved that "bubble tea made for a fun experience and a refreshing, affordable treat!"

The Hidden Lane Tearoom, 1103 Argyle Street, Glasgow West End

Lukas E liked the "really tea-roomy atmosphere and very friendly staff. Great selection of teas and variations thereof - I ordered a London Fog Tea Cocktail!"

Whittard of Chelsea, 95 Buchanan Street, Glasgow City Centre

"This place is absolutely amazing. From cute little teapots to charming coffee sets, Whittard is a lovely place to buy a gift or treat yourself to something tea or coffee related that you wouldn't necessarily buy otherwise," tips Nicola B.
