17 Limestone Street‚ Ipswich

For a unique outing in the heritage city, Tranquil Tea House offers a range of options.

You can order a pot of tea from the monthly menu to be enjoyed at the shop in the Boulevarde Arcade, along with freshly baked scones – or a cupcake from Little Mode Cupcakery which shares the tea shop space. Or you can book in for high tea or an educational ‘tea experience’.

Owner Dona offers tea experiences designed for those interested in learning more about this time-honoured drink.

Having grown up in Sri Lanka, she’s been enjoying beautiful tea since childhood and believes in its ability to relax and delight, and to bring people together in conversation. A myriad of health benefits are attributed to the different teas on offer here too.

Dona imports single estate black teas from Sri Lanka and also offers some blends, including a wonderfully fragrant chai, under her own Tranquil Tea brand.

You’ll find a range of teas uncommon in Australia such as the pomegranate tea which features a pure single origin Ceylon tea infused with the fruit as well as hibiscus flowers and rose petals. There are several soursop teas, known to be particularly high in antioxidants.
