Put the kettle on!

So far we have had Gongfu Cha at Johnsonville library, English morning tea time with Ruth Gotlieb and last Thursday night we had Masala tea with Shani and Joji of Ispice at Karori library. I had the pleasure of listening to Shani’s presentation and tasting their wonderful Masala tea, and it was excellent! If you missed out  it is not too late, the demonstration will be repeated in Mervyn Kemp (Tawa) library next Thursday from 7-8pm. All welcome!

Friday night (April 1) at Newtown Library, Matt from People’s Coffee will talk about fair trade coffee growers’ traditions, and you will have an opportunity to sample some of their delicious coffee. And last but certainly not least Oromia – Ethiopian coffee ceremony with Taitu Lemessa at Cummings Park Tuesday 5  April at 11 am.

Share your family traditions and experience coffee and tea drinking ceremonies from around the world at your local library!

Wellington City Libraries are also recording stories of cultural family traditions. We would love to hear you tell us about traditions that have been passed from generation to generation in your family, and record them to share with others. If you, or anyone you know, would like to talk to us please contact Ada Nally by phone 3892824 or email ada.nally@wcc.govt.nz
