Mum's the word

Monday, May 3, 2021

Mother's Day has crept up on us a little this year. Treat mum with our Tea for Two hamper - all locally sourced from the Adelaide Hills and the Fleurieu Peninsula. Two Des Destro mugs, handmade here in South Australia, Frantic Whisk biscuits, a decacent block of chocolate, plus two locally blended teas. 

Whilst the label says Williams and Taylor, our Queen's Breakfast and Earl Grey teas are expertly blended in Willunga, South Australia by Mandy at the Dandy Tea Co. 

Queen's Breakfast is exactly as it sounds - a bold and aromatic traditional breakfast tea. Enjoy with a dash of milk. Our tip? The milk should be added after the infusion, rather than before. 

English Earl Grey is a softer, more floral tea, infused with Swiss blue cornflowers. With its floral notes, enjoy this elegant, balanced tea mid-morning.

Spring forward, but mind the bees!

Monday, September 9, 2019

With the worst of the weather now (hopefully!) behind us, the bees are out chasing down the new blossoms. Did you know a honeybee only collects a twelfth of a teaspoon in honey in its lifetime?

Runny or creamed?

Both are available in W&T hampers. Hive Honey from Echunga supply an amazing creamed honey as well as beautiful runny honey from their hives. Buzz honey in Hahndorf and Fleurieu Honey can also be found across our suite of boxes. With each jar requiring the bees to make 23,000 scenic trips across the Hills and the Fleurieu, savour every mouthful!

Molten moments

Monday, February 6, 2017

Our Valentine’s Day hamper has a touch of glass this year, with the introduction of Tim Shaw’s intricate glass hearts adding to the romance of our hampers. Refined over many hours in a special crucible, the hearts are created once the correct temperature is reached in the furnace. The molten glass is rolled in the coloured powdered glass, before being skilfully encased in crystal glass. Once Tim is happy with the shape, the hearts are allowed to cool slightly, before being transferred to a kiln for longer controlled cooling.

How Do I Use - Pistachio Oil?

Friday, September 30, 2016

Pistachio oil is one of the amazing oils included in our hampers from Harding’s Fine Foods of Willunga. We have recently fielded a couple of questions from our customers asking ‘how do I use it?’ We thought the best way was to provide a potted history of pistachio nuts and their oil – nutting it out, if you like. So here we go;

The pistachio nut is a member of the cashew nut family.

Pistachio nuts are rich in vitamin A B6 and E and are in fact the seeds of small, drought tolerant trees originally from Asia and the Middle East. They are grown in other countries such as in the Mediterranean and the U.S.

Do the doorstep challenge

Friday, August 26, 2016

How many times have you visited the major tourist attractions in your own area?

It usually takes someone visiting from overseas or interstate for you to realise how much there is to offer on your own doorstep, particularly here in South Australia.  But I already live here, I hear you say.  I'll visit one day. I'll make the effort. And generally you get busy working or carting kids to and from school or to sporting events, and it never quite happens. Until the next visitor from overseas or interstate shows up and wants to go to a museum you drive past every day.
