Tea at the Library

I love the Journal cafe at the City Library in Flinders Lane. It's so funky. It's one of the few places I can get chai made with real tea, as opposed to some bizarre kind of powder or syrup with no actual tea content. I'm not 100% sure but I think the chai blend that they use at Journal is T2's - yum.

I stopped in at Journal with Pinky Dots (and Pippin of course) when I was in the city to have lunch with a friend. Pippin was snoozing, but Pinky Dots and I read a bit of Liquid Jade...

...and had some chai.

A bit of a tall order for a small stuffed cat, but your Tea Correspondent was equal to the task, I'm pleased to report.

Now we just need to decide on our next outing venue... Hopetoun Tea Rooms? Miss Marple's? Ten Ren? Stay tuned!


  1. Last time in Melbourne, I went to Hopetoun. Twice!

  2. Lucky you... I would love some chai while I read!

    By the way, Pippin is adorable! I want one!

  3. You are right, there is nothing like a good cup of tea. I personally prefer something unflavored, such as Chinese green tea, or Big Red Robe, but don't mind good Chai from time to time as well.

    Will definitely visit he cafe you recommend. Looks great.

  4. Robert - keep up the good work ;)

    Brittiny, alas Pippin is a limited edition of one only... :)

    Lena - hope you can get there. Have been checking out your online shop as well btw, you have some great looking tea!

  5. I should get the chai next time I'm at Journal. Normally I get the Earl Grey, which ends up being a bit disappointing. I'm quite sure they use T2.


Thanks for taking the time to comment... I appreciate it!
