Now anyone who knows me knows I’m partial to a tea or ten most days so this tea cosy competition hosted by The Mustard Tree caught my eye straight away.

Colder days, cute teacups, pretty teapots, cakes, biscuits….  It’s a no brainer! I dropped them a few questions on what was happening.

1 Can you tell us about the competition, how did it come about?

The Tea Cosy Competition came about after staff had a discussion about creating a fun event that our customers could be involved in. We had seen it done elsewhere. The CWA have a competition for example. We thought we could give it a go and incorporate a Tea Party in our Café as well.

2 How do people enter?

All people need to do to enter is make a tea cosy and donate it to us. It will be put on display and their details taken.

3 What happens to the tea cosy’s after the competition?

This tea cosy is then treated as a “donation” to us which we hope to on sell after the event.

4 Is there a prize?

There are prizes for the winners. Local businesses (Yarra Valley Tea Company and Yarra Ranges Herb Farm have kindly offered hampers of goodies for us to award to the winners.

 6 Will it be an annual event?

We hope to make it an annual event.

Those speedy sewers and quick knitters still have time to enter!
