I’ve been busy gearing up for this year’s Christmas season of market stalls, and Im feeling proud that my tea business, Beit e’Shai is almost one! I officially launched it on 16th December 2017. It’s been a roller coaster of a year, and I am deeply grateful for the love and support I’ve received. I couldn’t have done this without you.
And so, Beit e’Shai
® (House of Tea in Arabic, pronounced bayt eh shy) has come to be an online apothecary and teahouse, as well as a pop up market stall and teahouse. All teas and tisanes are handmade by yours truly using 100% natural blends from certifed organic ingredients. Drawing on my knowledge and appreciation of traditional Arabic medicine and herbalism, I create aromatic teas and tisanes that focus on health, wellbeing and comfort. Beit e’Shai offers beautiful blends that are made from high quality herbs and spices for you to enjoy with your family and friends.
I stock my teas in some beautiful places including, Rhubarb Organics
at Preston Market, Timber+Green Cafe at Creative Cubes
in Hawthorn and at the Immigration Museum
Gift Shop, especially during the Khalil Gibran Exhibition (Dec 2018 – Feb 2019)… I have to say, Khalil Gibran is one of my favourite poets, if you get a chance, be sure to see that exhibition!
If you’d like to become a stockist, please get in touch via email.
Tea lovers are also introduced to the Beit e’Shai experience through events, markets and social media. And I am available for in-store tastings, performance dinners, tea parties, tea ceremonies, demonstrations and workshops.
In the new year, if you would like me to host an event or facilitate a workshop, please contact me on this email.
Keep an eye on my social media too for the Beit e’Shai 1st Birthday
special offer! Be sure to follow @beiteshai on Instagram
to find out more about it in the coming week.
In the meantime, please visit me at one of the many markets this season!
I always have a pot of tea brewing for tastings and there’s always a great vibe at these local artisan markets with music, food and other fantastic local makers and traders. Drop by for a cuppa and say hello.
Supporting local, small and ethical businesses keeps us thriving. So on behalf of my friends and other small businesses, I want to say THANK YOU for your support and ethical shopping choices during this season. Thank you for keeping us going and able to do what we love doing!
So much love and gratitude to you.
Here is where you can find me in person, otherwise, the Online Store
is always open!
Hope you have a wonderful holiday season and fantastic new year.
I’ll be hosting another delicious workshop at the Flower & Garden Market on Sunday 9 October at Barkly Square in Brunswick. You’re invited to balance and renew your energy with medicinal herbs from your home garden or pantry, and learn about the benefits of seasonal produce.
As we enter the warmer months, support your body & mind into healthier rhythm and vitality, away from the sluggishness of winter. The Spring Rhythm workshop will include an introduction to selected medicinal herbs commonly found in a home garden & pantry, along with a herbal infusion tasting. And we will discuss some benefits of selected seasonal produce & have a tasting of a yummy Spring Cleansing juice.
This 45-minute workshop will run twice during the day, at 11am & 12.30pm. Spaces are limited, so arrive early to book your spot in advance.
For more information visit Barkly Square’s website at this link.Also at the market, Ben Taylor CERES horticulturalist will be hosting gardening workshops & the Glasshaus’ pop-up nursery will be open. There will be opportunities to learn about potting and caring for plants with propagation masterclasses, kids gardening, pot painting and terrarium workshops from the colourful creative team at Home-Work. You’re also encouraged to bring your heirloom seeds & seedlings to swap with your neighbours.
Sounds like a pretty great day to me! See you at Barkly Square on Sunday 9th October (located at 90 – 106 Sydney Rd, Brunswick).
