The Berry Tea Shop opened its doors in June 2010 and was created by husband and wife team, Cliff and Paulina Collier. Between them they have over 20 years experience in the hospitality industry and have drunk thousands of cups of tea.
Moving to Berry from inner-city Sydney, Cliff and Paulina left their stressed-out city lifestyle behind to find some peace and quiet in the country.
Lured by the rolling green hills, that reminded Cliff of his homeland of England, they sold their busy cafe in Woolloomooloo and made the life-changing move.
As they began to slow down into country life and take stock of their lives, the idea of opening a little tea shop evolved. The Berry Tea Shop celebrates their love of all things tea and the very British tradition of sitting down to a good cuppa (preferably with a nice bit of cake!)
However, don't be fooled by Cliff and Paulina's warm and friendly demeanor; these two are seriously professional and passionate people when it comes to tea. Their focus is on quality and service and providing a wonderful experience for their customers.
They have been thrilled by the response to their store and have built a loyal following from tea lovers, young and old.
In March 2012 they launched their online store so now The Berry Tea Shop teas, as well as their gorgeous tea wares, can be purchased Australia-wide.
