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.
