Australia's Biggest Morning Tea

Donated by Adrianne Katmadas

State Library and several other Queensland public libraries have hosted special Tea & Me events and displays to celebrate our love of tea.

From Goondiwindi with their colourful display to Yeppoon and Rockhampton with their 'Timeless Tea cups' and 'Tea Lives' events, to painting a 'cuppa' in Gladstone and sharing 'Tea Stories' in Gympie, tea lovers across the state were able to share their stories over a freshly brewed pot.

This cup was donated by Adrianne Katmadas at an Australia's Biggest Morning Tea held at State Library on 24 May 2011.

These morning teas are held all over the country to raise money towards the Cancer Council's work in research, prevention and support for those people affected by cancer and what better way is there to kick off a celebration of tea stories, than by having a cuppa to help those in need.
