If you are ever in Bath, UK, you should certainly make your way towards Sally Lunn, one of the most prestigious tea houses in the country. The British do appreciate their tea, and places like Sally Lunn show exactly why. It’s located in the oldest house in Bath (built in 1482), and has been a tea house for more than 3 centuries now. The place has been serving tea to the locals for about 400 years, and that is quite a miraculous thought.
Sally Lunn is most famous for discovering the Sally Lunn Bun– one of the most delicious accompaniments to tea, ever. The Sally Lun Bun is also known as a Bath Bun, but the word ‘bun’ does not accurately depict its’ taste. It’s also part bread, and part cake. It’s a generously sized bun that is also surprisingly light. It was created by Sally Lunn, a Huguenot baker (and the person the tea house is named after).
What is most enjoyable about this place is the fact that the tea house has been doing the exact same thing for centuries- people have been coming to this spot, for the same tea, and the same bun for about 400 years and that is just absolutely mindblowing to imagine!
