Tea for Two (Hundred)



Queen St Mall is the main shopping district of Brisbane and is no different to the malls/main streets from Abu Dahbi to Zagreb.Top shelf  Tiffanys and Chanel to 'down the stairs' basement tat!
The one good place to check out is the Brisbane Arcade, which is comparable to the Strand in Sydney or The Block in Melbourne. It has small interesting family shops in a historic setting. It was built by the Mayne Family and is now held in trust for a Foundation, with all profits going to medical research.
Here is the Tea Shop with their fantastic window display, however, not the place to take a child or a bull.

  1. Such a huge array of tea cups and saucers! I won't be taking my bulky handbag in there on my shoulder either! Very impressive range of designs!

  7. I'll take earl-grey tea in that elegant buttercup yellow tea cup thanks Mark - what an interesting shop I'm sure I could do damage to my credit card there and with the proceeds going to medical research it would be a guilt free transaction.
