About Us

A little background ...

Full of Yorkshire Goodness!

We like to think we offer something a little different from the high street corporate brands - similar high quality but with a more personal touch

So if you enjoy a warm welcome in friendly surroundings, and like great tea, coffee and cakes then please come along and see what we have to offer

A (tea) potted history


August. We re-open a newly refurbished Realitea, and welcome our customers back to a 'new normal'.


In partnership with Ripon Workhouse Museum, Sarita devised two teas 'Ripon Hornblower' & 'Matron's Minty Tea' to celebrate RHS Harlow Carr's 70th Anniversary. We were also namechecked on BBC Radio 4's 'Woman's Hour'


TV cameras arrived on North Street as Sarita glammed up to feature on Channel 4's 'The Food Chain' describing how to make mini-samosas, part of our Raj High Tea


The year we really landed. Our tapas nights hit the mainstream and were heavily oversubscribed. Our future MasterChef & CEO was born, makng it a memorable twelve months!


August. Ripon won our six month long beauty contest and became the birthplace of Realitea. What a fantastic decision! We were overwhelmed by the help & support we received from the community
