The Tea Chest is a beautifully written Australian Chick Lit book.
The main characters of Kate, Elizabeth, Victoria and Leila form a very inspiring friendship based on a mutual desire to make the Tea Chest a success.
The four ladies are brought together by chance and all need to prove their worthiness and abilities not so much to each other as to themselves and their loved ones. Their determination, passion and friendship is what makes this story worth reading.
I am not a tea drinker but I was inspired to visit this shop (if it were not fictional). I was inspired by the women who created it, by the descriptions of the aromas and the atmosphere I imagine existed in the shop.
When I was last in London I had breakfast at the Tea House in Vauxhall and in my imagination I can picture the Tea Chest being similar to the Tea House.
If you like a good chick lit book and want to be inspired by passion and friendship then I can recommend this book to you.
