Tal-y-Tara Tea & Polo Shoppe

More than 5,000 miles separate San Francisco from England's sprawling countryside. But stroll down California Street in the city's Richmond district and this distance disappears—all because of an unassuming tea and equestrian shop named Tal-y-Tara, a Gaelic phrase that means "by the strength of the King." Its interior certainly seems fit for royalty. Antique wooden shelves and tables fill the space, displaying riding boots and other equestrian supplies alongside mannequins adorned in hats, jackets, and other sporting apparel.

Beyond the leather saddles and riding crops lies a tearoom. In this space, aromas from more than 50 teas dance in the air, telling tales of classic flavors such as Earl Grey and playful creations such as Bingo Bango Mango. Their scents emanate from freshly brewed kettles, which arrive at antique tables dressed in patterned cozies. Next to the kettles sits an assortment of classic teatime eats: homemade scones with Devonshire cream and motorloaf sandwiches, which are as quintessentially English as the tiny British flag Winston Churchill always kept under his hat. Tal-y-Tara's motorloaf recipe—passed down through the owner's family—nestles raisins and walnuts into semi-sweet dark bread. Slices bookend a variety of sandwich fillings, such as cream cheese and cucumber or egg salad with capers.

The tea, food, and antique decor create the ideal atmosphere for lengthy conversations with friends or escapes into a good book. And though visitors will ultimately have to leave, the shop sells teapots, cozies and other whimsical merchandise that can send a bit of Britain home.
