Specialises in: Flavored Tea
Epemeris Tea Room is a charming little establishment and well worth a visit if you’re in the area. The selection of different teas on offer in mind-boggling, all displayed in jars covering two walls. I found the offer of flavored tea (and coffee) particularly exciting and promptly (well, actually after a long and hard deliberation – you should see the menu!) ordered Ceylon tea with cinnamon and plum. The cinnamon was delicious, but I’ll have to be honest, I didn’t really taste the plum. The cakes were also tasty, though perhaps they could do with slightly more choice.
I think the only thing that really lets this place down is the feeling that you are sitting in someones living room, and not in a good way. The kitchenette at the back is kitsch and sweet but definitely brings out the private living room vibe, and you do start to feel a little bit like you’re intruding and shouldn’t really be there.
Don’t let this put you off however, if you live in Marchmont it’s definitely worth a try.
