Tea and Chocolate…

I had the most wonderful Sunday afternoon outing today… I don’t often get the chance for Sunday outings and though the time may have been better spent contributing to my current thesis word count, I felt the Sunday outing was an unavoidable opportunity just the same… Generally, I don’t make a habit of looking up the what’s on sections of touristy websites…

I like to think I have a general idea or am in the ‘loop’ enough to know what’s going on… But it just so happened that I stumbled across a museum exhibit! Very exciting… I can’t remember the last time I went to a museum! Also very exciting was the admission price (or lack there of)… Being a student you take all the free entertainment you can get.. And it was a TEA exhibit! Yes that’s right! The history of tea and of all the daily meals… I learnt a lot!

In the 1800s dinner was at 10pm and afternoon tea was invented to stave off the hunger pains… Green tea was the original tea of choice in Britain (here o was thinking it was very modern and chic to drink green tea) and though an afternoon tea usually ran for 3 or 4 hours it was generally good manners to stay between 15mins and up to an hour…

After all that learning I was genuinely needing something to contribute to the sugar levels…

Something sweet and delightful…

So Adrian and I endeavoured to find a cafe or patisserie that was actually open on a Sunday afternoon… Quite a challenge in Adelaide…

Enter the Chocolate Bean Cafe! Aaaah bliss! Pokey, sweet, warm and brown are the best words to describe it… Oversized Tea and coffee and chocolate bliss… We indulged with milk and white chocolate shots, chocolate mousse and chocolate cake… And my favourite thing about this place? Vegan friendly 😀

Praise God for the simple pleasures in life…
