When did you start your business? 
2010

What inspired you to start your business? 
A passion for creating pretty things in sugar, starting with my kids birthday parties and then it just grew until finally the dream cake shop serving gorgeous cakes and lovely tea.

What do you love about your business?
Cakes bring people a moment of joy - from a simple treat to a celebration of a life event. I love being part of that. Plus the creative side - every cake is a new challenge, a new design - so its really rewarding when it turns out well.

What's your favourite menu item?
Caramel fudge cupcake with praline shards and a salted caramel drizzle - YUM!

What little thing in life gives you joy?
The ocean, a hug, hearing people's stories when they come into our little shop.

How do you recharge your batteries?
Surfing, ski paddling, running, swimming - anything outdoors, near the beach and active.

What's your favourite Tielka tea?
Honestly, it's the Tielka Breakfast Black Tea - I love it - soft and fragrant with no after taste. I always have a pot on the go whilst I'm making cakes.

A MINUTE WITH
Amanda Hutton

When did you start your business? 
September 2017

What inspired you to start your business? 
I love pretty things and creating experiences for people. I had been to a really average high tea and decided that Brisbane needed a High Tea Parlour that made delicious items on site with passion and flair!

What do you love about your business?
I love the people. It's always about the people and bringing a little joy into lives. It's the best feeling. I also love the family of staff that I've brought together and of course the positively divine desserts that we create.

What's your favourite menu item?
A week ago I would have said out Cream Puffs, but as of today I have just had the pleasure of having a Banoffee pie with a cup of South Cloud Chai.

What little thing in life gives you joy?
Reading, I'm an avid reader and love all genres. I would say my children, but they aren't little joys, they are huge!

How do you recharge your batteries?
This is a guilty pleasure and I shouldn't admit it, but I love watching reality TV. Give me the Housewives of New York or OC and I shut off, relax and let my brain turn to mush for 30 minutes. I come away feeling like a superior human being (joke)!

What's your favourite Tielka tea?

When did you start your business? 
27th June 2017

What inspired you to start your business? 
I love that we are serving fabulous food and beverage and people are loving it! I love that our little cafe is only 35m2 in total so our running costs and carbon footprint are at a minimum. I love that we serve all our takeaway items in eco packaging and that this decision (whilst slightly more expensive for us) is received with gratitude and appreciation by our customers. I love that we can easily provide gluten free and vegetarian options, as living in a small town are not so easy to come by. I also love the gifts of fresh homegrown produce given to us by our friends that Ash then turns into an amazing rhubarb crumble or leek and mushroom frittata.

What's your favourite menu item?
ANY of Ash's delicious cakes!!!

What little thing in life gives you joy?
Laughter, music and fantastic food

How do you recharge your batteries?
We both enjoy yoga with our local teacher. We also enjoy lonnnng lunches at The Zin House (Ash's former employment) where all the food is grown on site and organic. I love live music, wine and not acting my age.

What's your favourite Tielka tea?
Sticky Turmeric Chai!!!!

Juliana G

When did you start your business? 
Beginning of 2017

What inspired you to start your business? 
Everything at Temple Coffee is about being as local as possible. Even the coffee machine is an old fashion manual Fracino that brews the perfect coffee, I think the coffee machine is pretty special!

What's your favourite menu item?
I must say Coffee made with Green Lane plantation beans from Mt Tamborine, although it goes side by side with Tielka's Sticky Turmeric Chai.

What little thing in life gives you joy?
Consciously, every little thing becomes joyful. I really like how I can take Temple Coffee everywhere that a car wheel can drive into. The scenarios keep changing, and it's one more beautiful than the other. Also, the change from paper cups to Joco cups. I hope everyone jumps on board on this mission to save the planet!

How do you recharge your batteries?
The trailer batterie's or mine? :). Walks on the beach to calm the spirit, kundalini yoga weekly to keep me strong, surround myself with amazing humans always helps the energy to flow always in the right directions.

What's your favourite Tielka tea?
All of them....and then Sticky Turmeric chai, first!

A MINUTE WITH
Sally Hookey, owner

When did you start your business?
2007

What inspired you to start your business?
My partner Pete and I both grew up on farms, and we wanted to create our own farm business on our land at Belli Park, based on our values of clean food. We researched lots of ideas and finally settled on growing organic feijoas, a South American Fruit not grown commercially in Australia, but huge in New Zealand. I'd grown up eating feijoas on our family farm near Yass, but Pete had never even tasted one, and so we went to New Zealand to do most of our research! Once we had established our orchard, it takes 5 years to fruit, and from the start of fruit production we opened our farm to direct farm-gate sales. Customers started coming to us from all around the state, even as far as Townsville, and so each year we added something to the farm gate as we've grown. This year we realised a long-time dream of converting our garage to a full gift shop and adding a food van, meaning we can open right through the year! Our retro food van is named Myrtle, after the feijoa trees, and we open every Saturday 9-3. We serve organic Montville Coffee, Fairtrade organic Tielka Teas, and all organic home-made goodies, lots featuring feijoas of course! Our gift shops stocks only things made by family and friends and we have also collected lots of very cute animals that kids can pat!

What do you love about your business?
We love working outside together in complete harmony with nature, and how our business has become a reflection of our love for each other and our family.

What's your favourite menu item?
Feijoa Chocolate Cake!

What little thing in life gives you joy?
Walking with mini-goats.

How do you recharge your batteries?
A cup of tea on our veranda enjoying our view!

What's your favourite Tielka tea?
Limonada Rosa Herbal Infusion
