On Thursday we had a meeting organised with our wedding planner, Leila, followed by a spot of shopping in town. We also stopped in for some lunch at Eteaket, a tea boutique and cafe on Frederick Street (pronounced "etiquette" apparently). It's a cute little cafe with bright pink walls and dozens of teas to try, as well as a nice lunch selection. It was super busy, even at almost 3pm on a Thursday, so the Edinburgh locals clearly know a good thing!
There are a huge numbers of teas available, categorised into black teas, green teas, oolongs, white teas, herbal etc. Each comes with a short description and then it is up to you to pick something you fancy. Joe went for Bollywood Dreams Chai which smelt just like Christmas, while I picked Yellow Gold Oolong (supposed to make you feel a million dollars!). Really interesting, tasty, and I'll definitely be expanding our tea repertoire. We also had lunch - a feta, sundried tomato and olive ciabatta for Joe and tomato and basil soup for me. Very nice.
