LoveReading Expert Review of The Tea Chest

A lovely book of friendship, trust, ambition, realising one’s dreams and achieving.  It has the added bonus of teaching us a lot about the different blends of tea and the plants and fruits used to enhance them.  It concerns a successful Australian business woman bringing her boutique tea shop to the Kings Road in London, the two women who join her needing an uplift in their lives and of the trials and tribulations they encounter trying to open.  It’s a good read.


A 'Piece of Passion' from the publisher...

'Josephine Moon has created a divine world in The Tea Chest that immediately drew me in like a warm and comforting blanket. Set in a boutique London teashop, with rose petals, cinnamon bark and orange peel scenting the air, three women come together from very different backgrounds and learn to trust themselves and each other. A gorgeous novel about friendship and self-belief, this is the perfect read to curl up and enjoy with a cup of tea.' - Sam Redman, Editor, Allen & Unwin

The Tea Chest Synopsis

Kate Fullerton, talented tea designer and now co-owner of The Tea Chest, could never have imagined that she'd be flying from Brisbane to London, risking her young family's future, to save the business she loves from the woman who wants to shut it down. Meanwhile, Leila Morton has just lost her job; and if Elizabeth Clancy had known today was the day she would appear on the nightly news, she might at least have put on some clothes. Both need to start again. When the three women's paths unexpectedly cross, they throw themselves into realising Kate's magical vision for London's branch of The Tea Chest. But every time success is within their grasp, increasing tensions damage their trust in each other. With the very real possibility that The Tea Chest will fail, Kate, Leila and Elizabeth must decide what's important to each of them. Are they willing to walk away or can they learn to believe in themselves? An enchanting, witty novel about the unexpected situations life throws at us, and how love and friendship help us through. Written with heart and infused with the seductive scents of bergamot, Indian spices, lemon, rose and caramel, it's a world you won't want to leave.
