tea@Hart is closed due to the Covid-19 crisis, but our webstore is open!

Our motto has always been ‘bringing people together’ – unfortunately during a pandemic, that’s not a great business model. As per the law, we’ve had to close our physical tea room. This does give us chance to do some work inside though – as we continue to move even further into focussing on games and events!

But we do have some things we’re doing during the lockdown:
1) For people in Hartlepool we have a lending service for our games. Head over to our facebook page and send a message if you’d like to borrow some. This is free of charge.

2) Our webstore is still open, and we’re adding things to it all the time. We deliver locally for free, and post across the UK.

3) We still put in regular orders with our suppliers. If there is anything you need, please email or send a message via facebook.



All our cakes, biscuits and scones are baked on site or in our family home

both with a 5* food hygiene rating.

We have a wide selection, changing daily, and we always have freshly made gluten free and vegan options – avoiding palm oil where possible.

We also source everything we can locally, and we’re proud to use bread from Parker’s Bakery and Mary Lambert’s Artisan Bakery, local meats from Blyth’s butchers, and Salmon from R. King Fishmongers.


With the largest and finest selection of teas and infusions in Hartlepool, we’re the place for all Camellia lovers.

There’s over 30 loose leaf teas and infusions to choose from, with a selection of black and green teas, rooibos, and naturally caffeine-free fruit and herbal infusions.

Fairtrade barista coffees come from artisan roasters ‘Kingdom Coffee’.

We sell local ales from Sonnet 43 and Durham Brewery, and soft drinks from Fentimans.


We specialise in tabletop games

Whether it’s traditional games¬†like Monopoly and chess, modern classics like Catan and Carcasonne, or new favourites like Munchkin and Ticket to Ride – we have something for everyone!

There’s over 200 games in our library that customers can use while eating and drinking – and we host gaming nights on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. We regularly have themes nights and special tournaments – keep up to date on our Facebook events page.

We’re also slightly geeky…

…so we have regular quizzes and themed afternoon teas around our favourite geekdom!
