Tea & Me


Governor of Queensland, Penelope Wensley AC was our special guest as she launched the Tea & Me project on Tuesday 24 May with a fabulous morning tea on the State Library’s Queensland Terrace.  As well as lots of lovely pots of tea, pretty tea cups and delicious little treats, the Kransky Sisters helped us to celebrate the project launch with some very interesting tea stories of their own!


Tea & Me aims to collect tea cups and stories from all over Queensland.  We are asking people to delve into their cabinets and memories for their favourite tea cups and stories to contribute to the project.

Pictures of teacups and stories that you would like to share, can be uploaded to the Tea & Me facebook page www.facebook.com/teaandme

We are aiming to collect enough teacups to fill the cabinets on Queensland Terrace at State Library for a permanent display.  A virtual Queensland Terrace is also underway so that tea cups and stories can be shared online.  Submissions for the project close 31 August 2011.

Tea & Me is funded by an anonymous donation through the Queensland Library Foundation.

Tea & Me is partnering with Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea in the collection of tea cups and stories for the project.

I remember my Mum and Dad only drinking Tea as a child, I don't ever recall them drinking coffee like they do today! It's ashame in a way as Australian only ever drank Tea not coffee. Tea to me is English and coffee is American. So lets not forget where most of us have come from and at the same time enjoy and respect other cultures and their people but lets all show them what us Australians once really enjoyed after a hard days yakka!
