at the market shed

a few shots of the action The Tea Catcher style at the Market Shed at Holland St, City…thanks again to all the fine punters and stallholders and we look forward to seeing you all in the New Year….oh last minute#presents still available if needed….!
( am happy to courier ) http://theteacatcher.com.au/?page_id=16

NEW teaware just landed….!

Samples no more, all of these tea accessories on the shelf in multiple numbers…(and a little more is still to come…)
though some 3 pieces, some 20, get in fast if keen….a perfect #gift..orders over $50 will get to you, if local enough, before the 25th…!
some great teas to be posted ASAP too to drown in these lovely pots…
enjoy…
(before they make the shop just send us a word if keen theteacatcher@gmail.com)

great new shipment from nepal

So finally The Tea Catcher has his face out in the public and, new sales combined with the previous constant trickle of tea sales, the larder was nearly bare….!

To the rescue the fab team supplying us from Nepal…..et viola, nearly 50kg of super re-ordered Tea Catcher favourites (New Season Fresh Guranse Organics-green, first, second, autumn flushes, Earl Grey, Arya Tara Silver Tips

and more) AND FRESH NEW TEAS (inc. Jun Chiyabari Himalayan Jade Hand-rolled Organic 2nd flush(*see below), Mountain Dew Hand-rolled Special first flush, Sandakphu Hand-rolled Oolong)….yum and yippee…!

NB due to the fluctuations in the $A prices of the new season teas will likely rise a little, so head to the shop now or the markets thursdays and sundays, and help clean the shelves and grab some bargains….

The 200g teas will exit the online store soon to make room for new teas but bulk prices always available from theteacatcher@gmail.com

And all of the new teas will be reviewed, priced and posted ASAP…

STAY TUNED AND HAPPY SLURPIN’….!
