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 www.facebook.com/teaandme 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 heritage@slq.qld.gov.au

For more information visit www.slq.qld.gov.au/about/ppp/tea or call 3840 7879

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.
