The search for why Queensland loves a cuppa

Whether it’s English Breakfast or Chai, sipped from a boiling billy or bone china, Queenslanders enjoy a good cuppa!

The State Library of Queensland is capturing Queensland’s tea-related memories with its unique collection project, Tea & Me.

Individuals, communities and organisations from across Queensland are invited to contribute their tea stories.

Visit the to share your special tea cup picture and story, or just tell us why you love a cuppa! You can also email your story and/or picture to

The pictures and stories may be in the form of a special card, photograph, letter or other memento, or may be a tale told by text, sound or video file.

Selected tea cups and stories from Tea & Me will be displayed on State Library’s iconic Queensland Terrace and online.

Submissions close 31 August 2011

Tea & Me is made possible with funding through the Queensland Library Foundation. Our project partner is Cancer Council’s Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.
