Time for Tea: The Much-Loved Cuppa

1 Tennyson St, Napier

For most New Zealanders, gathering together over the comfort of a cuppa has always been a vital part of daily living: whether sitting companionably in the whare kai, around the kitchen table, or in the formal setting of the drawing room. Many homes had a china cabinet in which to showcase beautiful and treasured pieces of china including sets of cups, saucers and plates brought out for important afternoon teas. ‘Time for tea’ invites you to explore the Museum’s china cabinet, featuring all things tea from our collection.
