Had one of those moments yesterday that reaffirmed my love of London. Discovered the "Algerian Coffee Stores" on Old Compton street. This is one of those London shops that have been around since forever (well 1887) and has somehow not really changed. I've walked past a million times but never went in cause I thought it was all coffee. Not true. 120 different kinds of tea in fact. Got a lovely loose leaf Roobios flavoured with oil of bergamot. They also sell stuff like that Crème de Marrons de l'Ardèche from France, random Italian mints, and other rather obscure things that go with coffee and tea. You can really find anything in London.
