It’s time to go hopping down The Rabbit Hole.
Dusty old teabags in old pots have been given a makeover at The Rabbit Hole, Sydney’s first organic tea bar. Creators Corrine Smith and Amara Jarrett are on a mission to teach Sydneysiders the wonders of organic, well-made tea, which they attribute to the correct brewing technique. Timing, temperature and the best water are all essential factors of what makes a perfect cuppa tea.
Located in Redfern, the tea bar offers a large range of teas, with an extensive range of white, black, oolong, green, iced, flavoured teas and more. Their teas definitely differ from the norm, with actual shavings of coconut, real chunks of pineapple and raspberry featuring in their tea.
All staff have a great knowledge of which tea is suitable for a certain occasion or a certain time of day, and are willing to help you out. They also want to challenge coffee culture, offering a clean, energising boost in the Guayasa Tea Shot, good for mind and body.
They love their tea so much they even use it in their food. At the tea bar, you can try Tea Marbled Eggs, a Chinese breakfast staple, where a hard-boiled egg is soaked in tea to give a smokey flavour. Or you can feast on Kimchi and Black Sesame, with the beef soaked in black tea. There are also a number of breakfast and lunch options to try and a large selection of teas available for purchase.
To put on a tea party the Mad Hatter would be proud of, or just to enjoy your cuppa to it’s full potential, take a trip down the Rabbit Hole in Redfern today. Or, warm yourself up this winter at their second location, about to open in Barangaroo. Keeping many signature items from the Redfern store, but also offering some new options, The Rabbit Hole Number 2 will open in late June.
