'I loved it - a perfect blend of sweet and spice.' Jenny Colgan
Kate Fullerton, talented tea designer and now co-owner of The Tea Chest, could never have imagined that she'd be flying from Brisbane to London, risking her young family's future, to save the business she loves from the woman who wants to shut it down.
Meanwhile, Leila Morton has just lost her job; and if Elizabeth Clancy had known today was the day she would appear on the nightly news, she might at least have put on some clothes. Both need to move on.
When Kate's, Leila's and Elizabeth's paths cross, they throw themselves into realising Kate's vision of the newest and most delectable tea shop in London, The Tea Chest. But with the very real possibility that The Tea Chest may fail, the three women are forced to decide what's important to each of them.
An enchanting, witty novel about the unexpected situations life throws at us, and how love and friendship help us through. Written with heart and infused with the seductive scents of bergamot, Indian spices, lemon, rose and caramel, it's a world you won't want to leave.

Even though I am not a tea or coffee drinker, I found this story getting me hooked on making sure I start & try to appreciate the delicacies of fine tea blends. The author made the blends sounds ever so inviting, personal & thirst quenching. Intertwined the story of 4 ladies & their lives, business propects & fulfilling their dreams. A very easy book to read & enjoy & reminded me of those wonderful tea shops in Australian that one could spend hours mooching around enjoying the aromas & appreciating beautiful fine bone china tea cups & tea pots. That’s the sensory effect this book gave me.
Wonderful world I didn't want to leave!
Incredible debut book from Josephine moon. You don't need to love tea to appreciate this book the world that Kate Fullerton exists in is so beautiful I couldn't stop reading. I just wish the tea chest really existed I wouldn't ever leave.
A great great book a really really enjoyable read . Five stars and I'd give more if I could. The chocolate promise by the same author is also wonderful.
Lovely novel about 4 women and how they come into each other's lives, being the Tea Chest shop. Easy to read, hard to put down.
