High Tea with Liz Steel




This gorgeous postcard is iconic because it is impossible to have a cup of tea without thinking of Liz Steel and her beautiful sketches from tea shops around the world. Now I have one of these to treasure myself and it is particularly special because it was sketched on location in the T2 Teahouse at the Macquarie Centre in my home town, Sydney.


The envelope is a prize in itself with its genuine Australian postage stamp featuring none other than the famous little Borromini Bear.

Thank you, Liz I love my postcard.

How could it have been anything other than a cup of tea in Sydney?! :)

Lovely as ever and I see even Borrowmini sent something too. How appropriate that it was sent on Australia day.

Oh to have a tea card from Liz! Love all the teashop features, beautifully designed. How did Borromini get on a stamp?

Awww, Borromini on a stamp... We love the Liz Tea Shoppes, all of us. And as Katherine, says, on Australia Day, too...

But I'm wondering how he got his stamp, too.
