TEA FOR ME

Ten o’clock: coffee time. Thin columns of people exit offices in search of the bean. It’s grey outside and the urge seems keener. But it’s not always the bean they’re after, sometimes it’s the leaf: the tea leaf.

There’s a romance to drinking tea, a tradition and a ritual. And it’s therapeutic. Whatever ails you there’s a tea to treat it. Relaxing, energising, sleeping, detoxing, each has its own tea-remedy.

This morning we celebrated tea in a small but important way by carefully placing our new tea caddies and tea cups on the shelves at the newly opened Opera Kitchen.

Our teas are by Storm and India, an exciting artisanal tea distributor run by Auckland-based sisters Storm and India Bellamy.

The cups and saucers are from Rachel Carley, also in Auckland. As well as being aesthetically lovely these pieces have a rich back story based on the academic pursuits of their maker in design, form and architecture.

Both the vessel and the tea itself are a treat to have and to savour, it’s an experience in itself and a special element of our new Opera Kitchen, one we are really pleased to put in pride of place.
