premium loose-leaf tea, where visitors can explore and engage with the product through touch and smell. To aid your choice, rigorously trained baristas are at hand to offer guidance and
expertise on every aspect of tea, from flavours, to caffeine levels and health benefits. All teas are

While celebrating and respecting the long heritage of tea, Amanzi constantly create, play and evolve using the oldest ingredients with the most innovative processes. Each cup of tea is prepared with the purest water, temperature controlled for each type of tea, and steeped in the unique Amanzi tea maker for exactly the right amount of time each tea requires.

With Christmas just around the corner, there's no better time to enjoy Prezzo's Christmas Premium Evening Menu.
During my visit, I had the Mozzarella Carrozza, which was very tasty in all of its cheesy glory, and the Classic Penne with Walnut and Vegetables - a hearty vegetarian pasta loaded with delicious veggies including red onions, green beans, grilled courgettes, butternut squash, sunblushed tomatoes and goat’s cheese, mixed with walnut pesto and topped with spinach. The perfect winter warmer!
Having had such generous portions for both my starter and main, I nearly passed on the dessert, however, I couldn't resist the charms of the Chocolate Orange Truffle Slice. The dense cake, which reminded me of a Terry's Chocolate Orange, simply screamed Christmas! Seriously sweet and a little bit sinful - what more could a girl ask for?
The Christmas menu is £24.95 for three courses and a glass of Prosecco and is available until 1 January 2105.
