The Food Halls at Harrods - No Starbucks Here
Every kind of coffee or tea (of course, this is England you know) can be found in this hall. The aroma that fills the area makes you wish for a hot cup right there and then. Can't decide, ask one of the uniformed clerks. Check out the unusual coffee bean dispenser (pictured at right). You won't find one like that at Starbucks. Tea is the most consumed beverage in the world next to water. Every British man, woman and child drinks nearly four cups of tea every day. India, however, produces the most tea in the world which are primarily the black tea varieties of Darjeeling (expensive when the product is 100% Darjeeling), Assam (an ingredient in Irish blend and goes best with milk), and Nilgiri (India's most famous and plentiful specialty black tea).
