The Tea Room

“There is no problem so great that it can’t be solved with a cup of bush tea.”

- Mma Ramotswe, Lady Detective.

Come on in.

The kettle is on.

Welcome to my Tea Room, The Precious Tea Room, named in honour of Mma Ramotswe herself. If you’re not familiar with the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency books, this is a reference to a traditionally built cheerful lady who loves her tea. A lady after my own heart.

So, sit back, relax and grab a cuppa. I’ll slice up some fruitcake too, if you feel a bit peckish.

This is a place where you can rest. I hope it’s a cheerful place that helps you feel better.

Keep reading below for quotes for your soul. I’ll change it up every so often, so you can keep coming back for refills. In fact, I hope you will find in here a bottomless cup of tea for your soul.

Please say hello and introduce yourself!

This welcome reminded me a little of Here I am Loulou’s post – I love this idea of the blog not just being a “piece of writing you read” but written well, it’s an invitation to interact and written really well, conjures up the visuals to go with it. Love this page!

Thanks Veronica! I hadn’t heard about LouLou. Just had a peek – thanks to your link – and I love it! Exactly the sort of thing I was aiming for here. So glad you dropped in to my Tea Room! xx

Me again! I just wanted to add that I have since discovered Mma Ramotswe and the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency thanks to ABC iView. I loved it. Tea, for me, has become a little treat so I’ve been indulging with T2 varieties, my favourites being my own blend of Creme Brulee and Terrific Toffee black teas or evening nightcaps of either Red and Dreamy Rooibos or Red Choc Mint Rooibos. Their Vanilla Mint is lovely too.

So glad you loved Mma Ramotswe! Oooh, those teas sound fabulous. I haven’t gone to T2 for years. I used to live right near a shop, but not anymore. I’m trying to imagine what Creme Brulee tea may taste like… Red Choc Mint Rooibos sounds amazing – would love to try that one! I wonder if Precious would approve of the fancy rooibos blends?!

P.S.As per your reply comment on your page, let’s see if my reply comment notifies you! :)

Love the words on the pics! This is a really great thing you have got going, Deb. Ever thought of making them into something that could sell? They’d sell brilliantly? Fridge magnets would be great. Just a thought.

Thanks Lisa! I hadn’t thought of it before. Thanks for the suggestion. :)

LOVE this! I’m a lady detective fan too.. as you’ll gather from the name of my blog.. I’m a big tea drinker!


Deb June 10, 2012 at 2:30 pm

I wondered about your blog name! It’s a good one. Lovely to meet you Catherine. :)

Good morning Deb,
I love this page , it’s a clever thought which I might incorporate in my blog when I have a bit more time. Your writing is beautiful and insightful and goes with the setting of your blog. Again many thanks…I came across you I think because I was following a linked in Tuesday blog day at Jess….I had wanted to link in but couldn’t find the right links …or work it out. Anyway , I still wrote my post and one day will work it out…..writing is good for the soul :)
Have a blessed day.
From Alexa
