What’s your cup of tea?

This has been a weekend of tea….

On Sunday morning, with my two best friends by my side (well one by my side, one in the backseat), Lana del Ray blaring from the speakers, we set off to the little hole town of Heidelberg, about 40 minutes from Joburg. The reason for this mission was a breakfast at Her Majestea’s – a tea house and cafe which boasts over 100 teas on the menu. Mandy ordered pomegranate white tea, I had pineapple rooibos and Sazi had strawberry – the white tea was definitely my favorite. We also ordered some blooming tea – which doesn’t really have much taste but it’s great for the photos. There’s a lot of attention to detail at Her Majestea’s although there are some elements that I think they could do with out (like rude jokes on the back of the toilet doors).

If you’re looking for some amazing tea a little closer to home, visit the Good Luck Club in Corlett Drive – Sazi and I had the pineapple and ginger rooibos tea there on Friday and it was out of this world. I also had after-meal tea at a Turkish restaurant in Mayfair on Sunday afternoon. I love drinking tea out of these little glasses, although it definitely wasn’t as strong as the tea they serve you in Turkey.

  1. Us Brit’s are famous for our tea, but I must say, SA has much more interesting and delicious tea’s on offer in restaurants etc, and I drink much more tea now I live here! My favourite is when you go to Moroccon/Eastern restaurants and they serve you the boiling hot mint tea, but they add so much sugar it’s almost like mint syrup. Boiling hot syrup. Always ends in tears, but tastes so yum

      1. Katie, have you tried the strawberry rooibos tea?? I wish it was edible!! Had cinnamon and orange tea the other day which was divine as well. But my all time favourite is defo the fresh mint tea! Very traditional in Israel and so refreshing after a meal! Lovely pics x

      2. The strawberry rooibos at this place was ok – the pomegranate on the other hand was amazing. I’ve been making fresh mint, ginger, honey and lemon tea at home recently and it is the best way to go for sure….maybe i can open a teahouse one day šŸ™‚

  2. I love tea… I can’t go through a day without having my tea and coffee hehehe My favorite is definitely Green Tea and Lemon + Ginger Tea… Have you tried any of these? I enjoy having the Lemon + Ginger teas, especially at work, because it has a strong smell and reminds me so much of being in a spa… it is a great de-stresser! šŸ™‚

    1. I love any tea with ginger in it. There is a place called Post in Braamfontein where they make honey, ginger, lemon and mint tea from scratch, with all fresh ingredients. It is unbelievable.
