We’ve got a special Valentine’s menu which includes: a Mediterranean sharing platter piled high with Serrano ham, grilled halloumi & marinated artichokes; spicy & fragrant king prawn linguine with sweet tomatoes, fragrant basil and a chilli chick, and a Valrhona chocolate torte served with a raspberry & black pepper coulis.

We also have a special Valentine’s Day Afternoon Tea, which is perfect for sharing. Join us for three tiers piled high with fresh strawberry tarts, white chocolate & raspberry cookies, chocolate éclairs, miniature Battenberg, heart-shaped pavlova and hazelnut truffles, plus a selection of handmade savouries. Enjoy with a pot of one of our famous loose leaf teas – or a bottle of Prosecco for a real celebration. All of our dishes are made fresh in-house, or bespoke for us at our very own Teacup Bakery.
Afternoon Tea is £16.00 per person or £40.00 for two people with boozy bubbles.

Healthy treats at Teacup Kitchen this New Year
Here at Teacup HQ we know a lot of you are looking to eat clean this New Year in a bid to budge the Christmas bulge. Now, whilst we’re purveyors of all things cake (and have been known to serve said cake with a hearty dollop of clotted cream…) we also like to watch our waistlines. With this in mind, we’ve created a series of nutrient packed specials for the New Year.
Join us for slow-carb lunches like our Quinoa & Roast Pumpkinseed Tabbouleh which is served with a fresh garden salad, softpoached egg and a lemon & mustard dressing. We’ve also got high-protein, Asian inspired dishes like Oven-baked Salmon with Swiss Chard & Wasabi, which comes on a bed of Nori seaweed & steamed rice.
These dishes are packed with flavours & textures, and are designed to offer a nutritionally balanced meal whilst sating the appetite so you aren’t tempted to snack later.
Time for a tea-tox!
Healthy drinks are also top of the agenda for us. We have some delicious juices, smoothies and teas which pack in the antioxidants and vitamins whilst staying low on the calorie & caffeine counter. Try our ‘Refresher’ juice for a mid-morning pick me up, made with freshly pressed apples, oranges and lemons, muddled with stem ginger for a healthy kick.
Our extensive selection of teas also offers some detox-friendly options. We have several green & white teas which are lower in caffeine and high in antioxidants, make sure to try the White Peony or Jasmine Pearls on your next visit. We also have caffeine-free infusions like Whole Organic Rosebuds or Whole Leaf Peppermint which are thought to aid respiration and improve mood. Check out Proper Tea at Manchester Cathedral for an exhaustive selection of herbal infusions and low caffeine tonics.
Over indulged this Christmas? Time for a Teatox!
January 3rd, 2014
Over indulged this Christmas? Want to clean up your act without having to pull on a pair of plimsols or give up a food group? Look no further than Proper Tea at Manchester Cathedral, who can welcome you into a world full of antioxidants and caffeine-free goodness.
If you’re on a health-kick after an indulgent holiday season, Proper Tea have a wonderful selection of teas which are low in caffeine and packed with antioxidants for a gentle, feel-good boost.
Proper Tea say: “We recommend Jade Tip Green, Whole Pink Rosebuds, or White Peony teas for refreshing, low caffeine infusions. Or if you prefer a taste closer to a traditional builder’s brew, the Supergrade Organic Rooibos is high in antioxidants, completely caffeine free and has a sweet, malty taste allowing it to be taken with milk. This is a great compromise for health conscious people who enjoy the taste of a classic British cuppa.”
Proper Tea at Manchester Cathedral is a brand new tearoom established by broadcaster & tea fanatic Yvette Fielding, in conduction with our tea and cake team. The tearoom also acts as the flagship store for the Proper Tea Company, and you can pick up packs of their fine loose leaf teas to take home with you. Teacup Kitchen are proud to now serve Proper Tea Company teas too.

December 30th, 2013
Announcing Proper Tea at Manchester Cathedral - a joint venture between the Teacup team and local broadcaster and tea fanatic, Yvette Fielding. We’ve been working on the project for some time with Yvette, and were delighted to open the doors to the tea room just before Christmas.
Like Teacup, Proper Tea is a modern tearoom with a twist on the traditional. Proper Tea champions fine loose leaf teas and acts as a flagship store for the soon-to-be launched Proper Tea Company (more on that later..)
Proper Tea at Manchester Cathedral offers a contemporary take on the traditional British tearoom, serving an impressive selection of loose leaf teas alongside fresh homemade meals and delicious hand crafted cakes baked at the Teacup Bakery. The menu boasts showstopping afternoon teas, cream teas and cakes alongside hearty stews, soups and sandwiches.
Proper Tea is located opposite the Manchester Cathedral on Cateaton St, and is open 10.00 to 18.00 every day (10.00 to 17.00 on Sundays).
Pop in for a Proper cuppa and a slice of cake!
