#1 Top Café Serves Tielka Tea

Rebecca Domorev - Thursday, August 14, 2014

In 2013, voted #1 Brisbane’s Ltd Espresso + Brew Bar The World’s Top Cafe.    

Not alone in the top 100 list, #1 cafe Ltd Espresso + Bew Bar brews Tielka tea. 

Perhaps it’s because Tielka tea is becoming known as the best tea around. Perhaps it’s because specialty tea, as well as certified Fairtrade and Organic, are qualities customers want in cafes. Or perhaps, it’s because café owners are finally getting smart with their tea, they understand their tea-drinking customers desires – what tea-drinking customers desperately want the same love & care coffee customers receive every day.

To those cafes that already serve Tielka, congratulations! You’re part of a growing network of recognised cafes that is delivering what tea-drinking customers really want. And us tea-drinking customers love you!

If you have a cafe and you’re not yet serving Tielka at your cafe, take the plunge! Contact us now to find out how you can serve Tielka too.

A plea from a tea-lover

Rebecca Domorev - Saturday, June 01, 2013

TO: coffee-drinking cafe owner | FROM: tea-lover

I hear you’re not a tea drinker. I’m not a coffee drinker. 

The other day I visited your cafe and you told me you’re just not keen on serving loose leaf tea - it’s messy, inconvenient and far too complicated to brew - you’d have to train your staff to do it. You say while regular teabags are passable (they’re so cheap!), for better quality, teabag pyramids are just like serving loose leaf tea - you’re sure the local tea connoisseurs are quite happy with this. Why change something that works?

You know, perhaps we can work together - I’d love to help you make more things tidier, simpler and cheaper too. 

I’m not a coffee drinker, so I couldn’t tell you if it’s any good, but instant coffee is incredibly quick, extremely tidy (and so cheap!) and just might be passable. For better quality, I’ve heard those coffee pods are a coffee drinker’s mecca. I’m sure your local coffee connoisseurs would be quite happy with this - it’s just like serving freshly brewed coffee and being quick to brew and in individual serves (no training needed!), I bet you’ll laugh when people suggest going back to the hard grind of messy coffee brewing. Why change something that works?

You know, the other day I went to a cafe and I was served some of the freshest brewed Fairtrade organic loose leaf tea in a teapot I’ve ever had. It was so beautiful I almost cried. 

I know it’s inconvenient and a little messy, but I’d go out for a cup like that. Perhaps our freshly brewed passions could work well together?
