Tasty Saturday – The Tea Project and Coco Monde, Newcastle

The only think I like better than talking about Food is eating. – John Walters I was lucky enough to have two tasty adventures today, sans children. The first was my first visit to The Tea Project in town. Somewhere sandwiched between yoga schools, industrial-trend pubs and other reclaimed pockets of inner city Newcastle, this… Continue reading Tasty Saturday – The Tea Project and Coco Monde, Newcastle

Quick getaway to the Blue Mountains plus Teaview – Yunnan vs Grand Yunnan, T2

I recently escaped with my husband to the Blue Mountains for a well-earned mini break (without children!). It was a welcome respite from domestic servitude bliss. It’s been a hell of a year, so it’s nice to wind down and get away before Xmas chaos begins in earnest. We stayed in a little hidden spot called… Continue reading Quick getaway to the Blue Mountains plus Teaview – Yunnan vs Grand Yunnan, T2

Secret Santa has my number. Plus Teaview – Ayurvedic Tea Chai, T2

Guess who got a new tea set? I did! This lantern-inspired light green pot plus two cups, as well as a few more goodies arrived in the mail recently. Win! So obviously I had to christen it and document the event. My dilemma was which tea to christen it with? I decided T2’s Ayurvedic Chai was… Continue reading Secret Santa has my number.

A spot of tea with Great Uncle Jack. Teaview – London Breakfast, T2

    When I was little I had a great uncle, named Jack. He was the kindest elderly man, and he adored me.

Mindful afternoons – Teaview: Good Afternoon – T2

I can’t emphasise enough exactly how much I enjoy a moment of peace in the afternoons. I think the day that my children stop napping I’ll be forced to seek employment to escape stress!

Night Time Decadence. Teaview – Red Choc Mint (Rooibos) – T2

Sometimes late at night I crave that pot of tea. The comfort, the warmth, the savour. But not all of us do too well with the sleep thing after drinking caffeine. The solution? Rooibos. More specifically, T2’s Red Choc Mint. Is it desert? Is it tea? There’s no caffeine? Is that even allowed?! For new… Continue reading Night Time Decadence. Teaview – Red Choc Mint (Rooibos) – T2

Sometimes you’ve just got to roll with it. Plus teaview – Assam , T2

Like many mums, my house is full of shit. Broken crayons which taunt you with their impossible conundrum – the incalculable length at which the item remains functional vs can I throw this out without my children noticing? (they’re like fucking anti-disposal ninjas). Clothes miraculously migrate by the dozens out of their respective hiding places… Continue reading Sometimes you’ve just got to roll with it.
