“Who would then deny that when I am sipping tea in my tearoom I am swallowing the whole universe with it and that this very moment of my lifting the bowl to my lips is eternity itself transcending time and space?”
D.T. Suzuki, Zen and Japanese Culture

Yesterday began early, with the sunrise.  A beautiful, peaceful and calm start to the day, rich with glorious colors and the feeling of bright new energy pouring over us. Gratitude for a beautiful day shared with my best friend, my husband!

Sunrise over the ocean, peace and tranquility and fresh new energy for the day ahead. From our garden at Kiama.

After snuggling back in bed for a while, cup of tea in hand, we decided it was a nice day to explore.  We went along the road to Gerringong for a brief stop, then onto Berry.

Berry is the district equivalent of Tambourine, or so I’m told.  There are some quaint shops, like the craft shop, the saddlery, the haberdashery, craft shop filled with delightful things to make. We had to make a trip back to the car to unload some of our purchases before continuing.  By that time we decided it was definitely “time for tea” and we had been told of a delightful tea shop just around the corner and across the next car park!

The tea was too good to wait for photos.

The shop was too good not to take more than one photo.

The Berry Teashop, filled with china to suit any occasion, teas, tea cozies and home-made jams.

I was so tempted to stock up on the beautiful china. For those people who watch “The Mentalist” there was even a cup the size (huge) which he used in the last program I saw.  It was so tempting, so I settled for half a dozen jars of home-made jams, blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, marmalade, blackcurrant and raspberry and blackcurrant. Yum – I can’t wait to try them out.


The craft shop was packed with goodies too.

Filed with beautiful handmade goodies, tea cozies (an owl one too!) and all manner of things grandma used to make.

It was a beautiful day and I’ll finish this off with a wave from a passing friend.

It’s “goodbye from me….. and goodbye from him”.

The final word on the delightful experience in the tea shop, from a favorite author in my childhood, and a book I would recommend to everyone for a great laugh. “My Family and Other Animals” by Gerald Durrell.

“Tea would arrive, the cakes squatting on cushions of cream, toast in a melting shawl of butter, cups agleam and a faint wisp of steam rising from the teapot shawl.”
