Tea & Me

Tea & Me: tell us why you love a cuppa

Whether it’s English Breakfast, Chai or Rooibos, sipped from bone china, stoneware or titanium, Queenslanders enjoy a good cuppa.

State Library of Queensland, in partnership with Cancer Council Queensland’s Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, is seeking special tea cups and tea-related stories from individuals and communities across Queensland.

Stories collected will be added to State Library’s Tea & Me collection, and selected tea cups will be collected for display on the State Library’s iconic Queensland Terrace and online.

The story may be in the form of a special card, photograph, letter or other memento, or may be a tale told by text, sound or video file.

The tea cup may be one passed down through generations; the sole possession of your relatives when they arrived in Australia; a cup you used to share tea with a long lost friend; a reconciliatory cuppa with a family member, or one that sparks a special memory.

To share your special tea cup picture and story, or just tell us why you love a cuppa:

If you need help with Facebook, visit your local Queensland public library.

Tea & Me is made possible with funding through the Queensland Library Foundation, which supports development and access to State Library’s collections for all Queenslanders.
