Whittard of Chelsea do some beautiful gifts-delicate china tea sets, selections of different teas, and some wonderful truffles. Prices are quite high for some crockery but there are regular reductions. Well worth a visit if you like your teatimes. At the moment there also some Christmas reductions so that might be worth a look.

W of C sell teas coffees chocolates and all manner of coffee and tea related crockery. I often drop into this Kensington branch-outsidethere is usually a jug of free taster ice-cold tea, delicious on a hot day. Inside, the range of fruit and herb teas is enormous(try the ginger and lemon) as is the cafetiere and coffee maker loose coffee. Chocolate tends towards the bars of Lindt varieties-not too exciting, but the range is better than most Supermarkets. Crockery is mostly brightly decorated mugs and over-sized tea cups as well as the odd eccentric tea pot.
