Coffee Shop proprietor Ben Moore of Mad Meerkat Coffee, Wyalong NSW, says that the “Bush Cookie Jam Drops, that we provide complimentary with every coffee purchased at our cafe”, “are becoming a fast favourite with our regulars”.

Rather than provide customers with a minuscule mini bite cookie, Ben is one of those entrepreneurial operators that loves to give his customers a serious gourmet complimentary serve and since he is too busy to bake biscuits he relies on Bush Cookies home style Jam Drop Shortbread biscuits for their reliability and great taste.

The Art of High Tea

High Tea with Bush Cookies

The art of high tea doesn’t only depend on the fine teas and tableware or the gourmet sweets or savory collection of delights, but more for the pleasure of a leisurely afternoon with true friends, maybe some new like-minded friends, and the relaxed easy discussion amid our busy lives.

High Tea is a time to enjoy fine treats like the hand-made gourmet cookies made by Bush Cookies. Your girlfriends may think you baked these, as they are unique and tasty and like all home made favorite recipes, are made to a quality and not to a price point.

Executive Chef at Bush Cookies, Aniko, commented that, “Today’s lifestyles are busy and mothers should take the time out to enjoy a first class high tea experience with friends, at least once a month”. “Get a baby sitter. Just unwind and enjoy some simple girl talk with like minded friends”.

High tea is an experience, it’s something everyone should enjoy. Enjoying fine teas, perhaps even a quality matcha tea as an option and some glorious sweet cookies that none of your guests need to feel guilty about, because its a rare and important event.  So get out your best crockery, borrow a nice teapot from your mum or your favorite aunt. Roll out that favorite tablecloth and linen napkins and order a wide variety of gourmet bush cookies online.

The rise in popularity of high tea parties is relevant to the times and to the need for better interpersonal relations and friendly discussion. Many brides these days select high tea as a simple hen’s party option, but most often high tea is used by friends who simply wish to catch up.

So, take a regular time out and treat your friends and your loved ones to an indulgent afternoon at home to experience the art of a high tea party.
