A Berry Merry Christmas

Only two more sleeps until the big day and there's lots of rushing around making final preparations. Just remember, amidst all the chaos, to take some time out for yourself and relax with a nice cup of tea.
Wishing you all a very happy Christmas
from Cliff, Paulina and Staff at The Berry Tea Shop

Mad As A Hatter

MAD HATTER: Have I gone Mad?
(Alice checks Hatter's temperature)
ALICE: I'm afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret, all the best people are.

Spring Time - In The Garden

A day off from the shop today and thankfully the sun is shining. Time to get out in the garden! Today Cliff and I mowed the lawn, dug up the vegie patch and planted some herbs and flowers, while Jack, our gorgeous Cocker Spaniel, was nearby chasing lizards and rolling in dirt. Now we're sitting down to a well-deserved cup of tea and a slice of cake.

"Drink your tea slowly and reverently,
as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves
- slowly, evenly, without
rushing toward the future;
Live the actual moment.
Only this moment is life" - THICH NHAT HANH

While reading the lovely Spoonful we came across these beautiful ceramics by Caroline Swift. We just love the simple designs, especially the white porcelain spoons.
