The shop sells tea leaves and tea accesories.
After spending a long time smelling, I finally bought white peach oolong, Dongding oolong (a premium grade type) and cherry black tea.
I have always love oolong and the one I bought has this very nice caramel-ly smell. Smoky, dark and sweet, very special.
Princess and I love love cherries, so I got the cherry black tea to make iced tea on warm days.
This handy cooler (A$40) comes in handy when making cold ice tea. There were only 4 left in the shop, you know how women cannot resist when 'limited' rings in the ear. You can find a similar product from Bodum which is initially what I intend to get.
This teapot has a matt texturise surface, a nice change from the smooth porcelain you see everywhere. It makes 2 cups. The lid is clip-on and removable for easy cleaning.
The mesh strainer does not go all the way to the bottom. So I actually prefer Beehouse but they didn't stock anything under 4 cup capacity. Bummer.
I would suggest buying the stovetop espresso maker from Lygon as the shops there have a wider range at much better price. I saw the Kona for A$69 in Lygon.
