Tea for one, booties for one


When you have a newborn baby, you think you may never have the chance to enjoy a peaceful cup of tea again, let alone a hot one! But what no one tells you is that by making time for a five minute sit down and a cuppa, your outlook on the day (or night) ahead is indeed clearer and calmer – the benefits of ‘me’ time are real! And I promise you, the washing, ironing and cleaning will obligingly wait whilst you recharge your batteries.

With this in mind, World Par-Tea has created beautiful gift boxes containing booties, tea and tea filters so that new mums can treat both themselves and their babes. The gift boxes feature handmade booties from Ruby’s Shoedays, with styles and patterns to suit boys and girls, and a World Par-Tea fruity green tea blend (including Japanese green tea, apple, orange and rosehip). What better way to spend your ‘me’ time?

Thanks to reader Betsey for this tea tip. As she said, new mums may not have time to brew a whole pot but they do deserve a good leaf rather than a teabag.

World Par-Tea Booties and Tea gift boxes are $16.50 each (plus postage) and can be shipped anywhere in Australia.
